Easy to use seedling potters.
Simply press wet compost in to the base of the blocker - imagine you are making sand castles - smooth off any loose bits of compost, press the handle down into a seedling tray and you have ready made seedling pots each with an indentation to drop the seed into.
The soil block makers provide a high rate of germination and easy blooming, by providing indentations for seed sowing they eliminate pricking out and prevents root shock.
Made of robust zinc-plated steel construction.
The 'Mini 4' produces 4 5cm square soil blocks.
The '20 cell' produces 20 2cm square soil blocks.
Cube inserts may be used in the 'Micro 4' to leave indentations of 2cm square in the 5cm soil blocks. This allows seedlings that have been sown in 2cm soil blocks made with the '20 cell' to be placed into the Mini 4 blocks as the seedling grows.
Replacement dowel pins (the part that makes the indentation for the seed) for the 'Micro 4' are also available.
The set comprises of both sizes of soil blocker plus a pack of cube inserts. Excellent value for a keen gardener.
