This genuine Ladbrooke "Mini 5" soil blocker is great for mid-summer starts and for small and quick germinating seeds. The hand-held soil block maker makes five 1-3/8"x1-3/8"x1-3/8" soil blocks, each with a seed dimple pre-formed in the top. The Mini 5 comes with a set of five 5/8" seed pins, which must be inserted.
Soil Blockers are an innovative and simple solution to seed sowing. The Soil Blocker creates individual blocks of soil with indentations for each seed, eliminating pricking out and providing a high rate of germination and easy blooming. Made of robust zinc-plated steel construction, Soil Blockers are one of the most efficient gardening tools available, inexpensive and maintenance free! You can help reduce our global waste by using organic gardening tools such as the Soil Blocker.
It is best to wet your mix some hours before you make blocks to improve penetration of water into the planting medium.
