I do NOT have a green thumb so I need all the help I can get AND this is
the perfect product for me!
In pots or in‐ground, the absorbent coir fibers help ensure that water is used efficiently. Expand ‘n Gro retains up to 50% more moisture than basic potting soils and then releases water as plants need it, to help prevent over or under watering. Since moisture and nutrients must be able to reach plant roots, proper air space and circulation in soil is critical for plant health.
Since we can't plant anything outside here in Wyoming until late May, I decided to make a cute Easter centerpiece.

This was so simple! The instructions are right on the back of the bag!
I filled each of my pots with 1/3 Miracle-Gro® Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix  and added water.

Then stir! Pretty neat how the soil expands.
This concentrated planting mix expands up to 3 times when mixed with water, feeds plants for up to 6 months!
Can it get any easier!

Plant and watch them grow Big and Beautiful!

I then used a dowel to thread and stack the pots.
They sit perfectly on the sturdy soil.

I used my diamond bit to cut a hole in one of the pots.
So my top pot will sit a little slanted.

threaded the pot through the soil.....

and Ta Da!
Adorable potted plants that will be feed for 6 months AND has
50% more moisture than basic potting soil.
I was so excited about this product that we even started some seeds...

When these are ready to go outside in May

I know that Expand 'n Gro Concentrated Planting Mix will be perfect to till into the soil!
Tilling this planting mix into native soil can reduce the soil’s bulk density – making it up to 40% lighter, and creating up to 90% more air space. The result is more workable native soil with better water holding ability, moisture distribution, and drainage, all of which ultimately creates an improved rooting environment for plants.
Check out Miracle-Gro® Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix for yourselves.....I just know you will
LOVE it!
