I discovered this at a recent trade show and I think it’s a really cool concept. WONDER SOIL is a water saving gardening solution of expanding bricks, blocks, wafers and biodegradable pots. These state of the art products are made in various sizes and formulas for different gardening applications. The mixes are 100% biodegradable and promote faster germination with stronger root systems, better growth and healthier plants.Wonder Soil products expand up to 9 times their volume when water is added, thereby eliminating the need for big bags of soil.
I haven’t used Wonder Soil yet but I have seen it expand in demonstrations and also plants growing in it. I’ve read the literature and the multiple benefits described. I’m intrigued enough to say that I will definitely order bricks to use in some areas of my tomato gardens and containers. Part of the fun of gardening is the experimentation and discovery of new products.
From a practical standpoint, I know many gardeners complain of achy backs and the last thing they want or can do is haul several bags of soil around the garden. This could be just the answer. I think it’s an inventive idea, something out of the ordinary and a fun and unique gift to give or receive.
Wonder Soil is available at local nurseries or online at www.wondersoil.com.
