Bad Soil? No Problem!

Flooding does much more than dump tons of water on your property, I have found out. It spreads seeds from uphill, depositing zillions of weeds into the yard. It fills low areas of the lawn and garden with heavy, mucky silt. It basically wrecks the yard. I used to have such a beautiful yard and garden, but after a half dozen floods wiping out my yard in the past 6 years, my yard is now a disaster. I have some heavy-duty rehabilitation to do. My soil is heavy clay (common in water-logged areas) so that makes gardening even more challenging.

There’s a new garden product for folks like me who have poor soil. This stuff looks really good. It’s called Expand ‘n Gro™, from the Miracle-Gro® folks. It’s a concentrated plant soil amendment mix made from coir. Coir is the stuff from coconuts, that fiber, hairy husk. In the past, the short hairs of the husk were thrown away as an unimportant by-product from coconut harvesting, but now they hairs are being recycled. They are perfect for amending the soil.

The Miracle-Gro® Expand ‘n Gro™ mix expands to about three times in size when water is added. The material improves soil by retaining about 50% more moisture than those conventional potting soils AND makes the soil lighter and flufflier. It’s basically perfect for clay soils. With Expand ‘n Gro™, plant roots can expand more readily and obtain water and nutrients more efficiently. Additionally, the added plant nutrients feed plants for up to six months.

Go to the Miracle-Gro® Expand ‘n Gro™ website to get a free coupon for this product. It’s just in time for spring planting!
