I have a black thumb. Don’t believe me? Ask the Japanese maple in my front yard. Or maybe the boxwood. Or the Japanese Pencil. I’ve single handedly managed to kill them all. Ok, I did have help with the Japanese Maple (thanks Mom!) but all the other ones are my doing. We won’t even start to talk about how quickly I can destroy an herb plant.
So, what do I do to still have pretty flowers and great herb plants? I’ve been researching different potting soils to see if I can maybe give my plants a fighting chance. Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Gro™ definitely sounds like the perfect option to help me out.
It retains more 50% more moisture than normal potting soils which means they are less in danger of dying of thirst. On the flip side, this will also help prevent them from being over watered too. I promise you that I always seem to go to one extreme or another. Just call me Goldilocks…either too much water or just not enough.
Another perk: It’s feeds for 6 months. That means I don’t have to add additional plant food to my plants to keep them healthy and thriving. I barely have time to feed myself these days much less remember to feed my plants!
Want even more info on how Expand ‘n Gro™ can help your plants thrive and your garden grow bigger and better fruits and vegetables (or, if you are like me, grow anything at all!)? Check out the video.
Ok, so tell me all about what you are planting this Spring? Do you have a natural green thumb? Or is it completely black like mine?
