This Fiskars soil block maker creates blocks of soil for seed starting, producing healthier seedlings and reducing the need for disposable seed trays and pods. The soil blocks promote the formation of strong root systems, while preventing seedlings from rooting. This reduces transplant shock, while providing more efficient absorption of water and nutrients when plants are transferred outdoors. The structure itself ensures proper soil compression, guaranteeing each block of soil the right amount of air, moisture and perfect consistency. In addition, the tool places a hole in the top of each block. Backed by a full lifetime warranty.
