I have a few bare patches of dirt in my backyard that were originally planned to be used for herbs and a makeshift garden area. While we did have a few basil plants, rosemary and tomatoes the summer sun here in Arizona toasted everything pretty quickly last year. So now a dead plot of dried dirt exists which we still plan to use and have another attempt to bring some edible beauty into your yard.
I am looking forward to the benefits of the Expand ‘n Gro™ sample that was sent to me, this concentrated planting mix contains coir which is made from coconut husks and helps retain up to 50% more moisture as well as tilling this mix into the native soil can make it 40% lighter which creates up to 90% more air space. That is a lot of percentages, but basically all of these percentages add up to one thing:
Ideal soil conditions so that your plants and flowers can thrive over being planted in plain dirt alone. This is especially true for the arid dirt here in Arizona where few plants besides cactuses thrive natively without needing so much water and shade to keep them from becoming husks.
With the Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Grow Concentrated Planting mix you can grow 3x the flowers and vegetables compared to using just native soil. The coir improves the soil for many years and the mixture feeds plants for up to 6 months. This advanced formula claims to be far better than potting soil alone and is worth trying in your garden.
