- This soil blocker will produce beautiful, uniform cubes of soil to plant seeds directly into
- Made in the UK from zinc-coated steel to last for years
- Produces 5 blocks at a time
- Soil Blocker includes 5 dibbler tips that attach to the blocker's plunger and make a shallow indent in the top of each block
Place your seed in the perfectly-dibbled indent in the block's top, cover it over with soil, and bottom-water, and your plants will spring to life without the need to use plastics. You can then directly transplant your soil blocks into your garden.
Soil blocks allow the root system of plants to be air-pruned in much the same way as a grow bag will. This eliminates the risk of your seedlings becoming root-bound in their pot, and transplant shock is greatly reduced since you plant the entire block into the garden.
The zinc-coated steel that this soil blocker is made of will last for years, and you'll have an eco-friendly, recyclable answer to your seed starting needs!
PLEASE NOTE YOUR SOIL BLOCKER COMES WITH THE SOIL TIPS IN A SEPARATE SMALL BAG. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT DISCARD!

How to use?
How to use?
Prepare your soil blend in advance; you will need a soil blend that will hold its shape well once compacted. Ensure it's fully hydrated, and place it in a deep container. We have our preferred recipes in our article on soil blocking if you need recommendations!
Press your soil blocker tightly into the soil to fill. Brush off any excess, and repeat again to tightly compact additional soil into the blocker, ensuring it's firmly packed into place. Use something flat to scrape off any excess and create a perfectly-smooth base for your cube. Then, using the plunger handle, eject the new soil blocks onto one of our soil blocking trays or one of our Universal Bottom Trays. Repeat to make as many soil blocks as you need!
Between sets of blocks, it's a good idea to give your soil blocker a quick rinse in water to ensure it keeps ejecting perfect cubes of soil every time. When you finish, rinse the blocker off and allow it to dry fully before storing.
