Makes 20 micro-blocks per stroke in a 3x4" area. Use when your space is limited or when you want a large number of transplants. Micro-blocks are easier to warm, speeding germination, and can be inserted into 2" soil blocks to continue seedling growth. Using soil blocks allows for easy transplanting and eliminates root spiraling. Made in England by Ladbrooke Ltd.

A successful recipe for soil block mix (with thanks to Eliot Coleman): Mix 2 10-qt. buckets peat or coir with 1/2 cup of lime and 2 cups of azomite. Add 2 buckets of sand, 2 more buckets of peat, 1 cup of phosphate, 1 cup of greensand, 1 cup of bloodmeal and 1 more cup of azomite. Mix well. Add 1 bucket of compost and 1 bucket of soil and mix again. Add water until the mixture is spongy but not soggy and start making blocks.
