Loosens and Aerates Soil for Better Plant Growth
People are often surprised to hear that plants need air near their roots for healthy growth. After all, roots are in the ground. How does air get through all that soil? The fact is, good gardening soil is full of tiny air pockets. They allow moisture and nutrients to reach the roots more easily. They allow roots to grow easily, too. Many people find that their native soil is hard and compacted, making it a challenge to establish new in-ground plants. Miracle-Gro® Expand 'n Gro™ can radically improve the condition of native soil. When mixed in with native soil, Expand ‘n Gro can create up to 90% more air space for plant roots to grow. Even if you have heavy, compacted or clay soil in your garden, Expand 'n Gro makes it looser, easier to work and up to 40% lighter.
