Crafted in the UK from robust zinc plated steel, Ladbrooke Soil Blockers are eco-friendly, easy-to-use garden tools designed to simplify the process of growing and transferring seedlings. In addition to drastically reducing plant loss from root shock, this cost-effective system eliminates the need for plastic pots leading to a healthier garden and a less-cluttered greenhouse.
Soil blockers create multiple cubes of soil, each with an indent at the top to house your seed. Seedling roots grow down into the soil block, which can then be transplanted into a larger soil block or directly into your garden. Potting mix is both the container and the growing medium for your soil blocks. There’s no need to remove the plant from the block, or for pricking out – simply pick up your block and place it into its next home. This means healthy air-pruned seedlings and no plastic waste!
When looked after properly – cleaned after each use with water and hung to dry in a well-ventilated space – your soil blockers will last years, even generations.
