Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Gro Concentrated Planting Mix. A Miracle in a Bag.

This post brought to you by Scotts®. All opinions are 100% mine.

Spring has sprung and with it the desire to start a garden, spruce up our landscaping, and start lots of new plants.  My favorite part of this time of year is the flowers and the fresh tomatoes.  I'm a simple kind of girl.  But to be honest, I don't have the best of luck with anything I plant. 

Enter Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix.  This exciting product is a mixture of coconut coir and Miracle-Gro plant food.  Coir is a lightweight, 100% natural material derived from coconut husk. Compressed coir has a unique cell structure that allows it to expand and retain moisture.  

When mixed with your soil it aerates and loosens it.  It will create 90% more space than using natural soil alone.  This allows the nutrients and moisture to reach the plant roots.  And, unlike traditional soil amendments, coconut coir breaks down slowly in the soil, so it improves native soil for multiple years.  How awesome is that?  This coconut coir and Miracle-Gro also retain moisture, releasing it when your plants need it.  This prevents over or under watering.  They really have made this fool proof. 

Expand ‘n Gro™ features:

-Up to 3X the Flowers and Vegetables!* *versus native soil
-Significantly improves soil for multiple years
-Concentrated planting mix expands up to 3X when water is added
-Feeds for up to 6 months
-All natural fibers hold up to 50% more water than basic potting soil

I have recently tried the Miracle-Gro Concentrated Planting Mix and while my plants are not old enough to see the benefits of the Miracle-Gro, I was amazed at how much the soil expanded.  We also had a crazy busy weekend and I neglected to water for 2 days.  My plants still look incredible. 

I cannot wait to see the amount of blooms my flowers get.  And I love that Expand ‘n Gro™ feeds my plants for 6 months. 

But don't just take my word for it.  Check out this video and see for yourself.
