This is the first year that I am attempting a garden. Where we’ve lived before, I’ve never been able to plant a garden. In our house now though, there’s plenty of space and I’m going to go for it! I have no idea what color thumb I have but I’m sure hoping my garden is successful!

I’ve been reading up a lot on raised bed garden’s and the soil it takes, etc. I had no idea the process that goes into all of this. I kind thought, I’d just plant some seeds and things would grow. Pretty naive huh?! ;)

Thankfully there are products like Expand ‘n Gro™ to help out gardeners like me or any gardeners really. Here’s a few things that make this soil different from others:

-Up to 3X the Flowers and Vegetables!* *versus native soil

-Significantly improves soil for multiple years

-Concentrated planting mix expands up to 3X when water is


-Feeds for up to 6 months

-All natural fibers hold up to 50% more water than basic potting


Sure sounds like my garden would be happy with this soil. I love that it expands and it feeds your plants for up to 6 months! Expand ‘n Gro™ transforms any soil into an ideal growing environment for getting great results and higher yields. That definitely sounds like the soil I need!

Check out Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix. You could have a chance to try it out for yourself.

  16. Tracy Awalt Juliano says:

    I’ve tried, but a gardener I am just not. I can’t even keep a cactus alive. My mother in law lived with us for six years, and before she passed away last year, she left strict instructions… “When my time comes, someone better get over here quick and find homes for all of my beautiful flower bushes. Tracy will just kill them off.”… God rest her soul, she knew me all too well!

  17. jennifer dansberger jones says:

    i love miracle grow, though gardening doesn’t love me. If I try to go anything else I’ll use this sounds great!

  18. Alicia H. says:

    I only grow thing I can eat – flowers are pretty, but what’s the point? We have compost, so I don’t buy the soil, but I do use Miracle Gro plant food towards the end of the growing season when it’s really hot.

  19. Jeannette R. says:

    When I do garden, which I haven’t in a while, I always use Miracle Gro.

  44. Toni says:

  56. Amber says:

    I like the idea of gardening, and having a nice garden, doing all the work and maintenance, not so much.

  57. Natalie Moore Bowie says:

    Gotta stock up on the Miracle Grow

  58. Christy Anderson says:

    I tried out a container garden last summer…didn’t go so well. I’m hoping it was just because of the hot weather. Maybe this year will be different.

  59. Jamie says:

    I love to garden, and always use MiracleGro

  60. Susan P says:

    I wish I could garden, we do not have anywhere I can do it in the place we live.

  62. Stacy R says:

    Never tried this before, have a small garden on the balcony.. might have to try it!

  63. Kelly Rettig says:

    We do not garden as of yet but my daughter is wanting to. We will probably start next year!

  64. I’ve never seen this product before. It would be great for starting a garden with my kids! Thanks for the review – I’m definitely going to look for it at the store.

  65. Sheralle D. says:

    Sounds like an awesome new product, to bad I dont have time for a garden these days. One day I hope to be able to plant flowers and veggies in my own garden.

  66. Rachel Robertson (Azrael) says:


  67. Stephanie huff says:

  68. Tiffany G says:

    No I don’t garden :/ I should though since I have 5 kids and love fresh vegetables and fruits.. I would have little helpers if I did LOL
    Thanks for the info.. I will keep this product in mind if I decide too!

  69. ellen says:

    I do not garden, just let the perennials run rampant

  70. Chastity says:

    I don’t know…that seems SUPERnatural. Sometimes it’s better to stick with the tried and true, simple and old-fashioned, IMHO. But good luck with that. I’m just unnecessarily skeptical.

  71. Amanda Sakovitz says:

    I haven’t gardened before.

  72. Jaimie A says:

    Two years ago we had a nice garden. Last Year we didn’t end up having once because the rain drowned everything out. I am planning to have a good sized one this year and I’m excited. :)

  73. gloria lewis says:

    love the product

  74. Cindy B says:

    I wish they made a more natural version of this but still interested to see how your garden does ~ hope you post a follow up. Also wish I could garden this year but have had sciatica with this child and have been advised not to do all the bending and squatting required for a garden… have just a few plants in pots :)

  75. TONI says:

  82. Melissa says:

    Love to garden, it’s almost time to get the rototiller out. Over the last couple of years I’ve learned to store seeds from my veggies. Hope they all sprout this spring:)

  97. Tammy Dalton says:

    I have what you may call a red thumb~I kill any kind of plant life. I’ve tried having everything from ferns to cacti and even those bamboo sticks you just put in water, for some bizarre reason it shriveled up and died. I even tried to grow one of those “Topsy-Turvy Tomato Plants” but that didn’t work out either!! Now I don’t have any kind of plant life at all and we are better off that way!! :0)

  103. Tammy S says:

    I love planting a garden. there is nothing like fresh fruits and veggies from your own garden. :)

  104. J Buenrostro says:

  119. Nicole Sender says:
