This year we've decided to try our hands at gardening. Being the outdoor, nature loving girl that Moo is, she had been asking since Christmas to plant a garden. So, we went to the store and picked out some seeds- Jack O'lantern Pumpkins, Buttercrunch Lettuce, Sugar Snap Peas and Sweet Pea (flowers). Now having grown up in a house with a mother who loved flowers and gardening, I've learned that the best brand for potting and planting plants is Miracle-Gro®.. Hands down nobody else out there has better soil.
So, it was a no-brainer that we're using Miracle Gro® Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix for garden and potted flowers.
We're using Expand 'n Gro™ for specifically for a lot of reasons. Being a busy wife, mother and career woman, I'm always on the go. Thus, there are bound to be days that I'll forget or won't be able to water or feed our garden. Thankfully, this planting mix holds up to 50% more water than other mixes and feeds plants for 6 months. So, I can take comfort in knowing that our veggies and flowers aren't starving or thirsting to death.
Since, Expand 'n Gro™ will increase our yield up to 3 fold in comparison to just using dirt out the yard, we can look forward to nice lush and full garden. Speaking of yard soil, using Expand 'n Gro™ adds years of improvement to your yard soil. Who wouldn't want better natural soil in their yard, especially if you garden every year?!
One of the most important reasons I'm using this planting mix is to save money. Since it expands 3 times the original amount when wet, i won't have to use as much to cover our seeds. Talk about a score! I could go on and on about Miracle-Gro® Expand 'n Gro™, but I highly recommend that you try it for yourself and see what you think.
Are you planting a garden or flower bed this year? If so, will you be using a Miracle-Gro® planing soil?
