The Soil Blocker Mini 5 produces 5 x 3.8 cm (1.5 inch) soil blocks. It comes with Seed Pins that create indentations for small seeds. 3.8 cm (1.5 inch) soil blocks are best for small, quick growing seedlings that will be directly transplanted.
Soil Blockers are a fantastic tool for market growers and gardeners who want to eliminate the use of plastic in the growing process. Growing seedlings in soil blocks also allow their roots better access to oxygen and prevents them from being rootbound. Simply push the soil blocker into a wet soil mix and squeeze the handle to make soil blocks.
*The pins in the Mini 5 are removable and can be interchanged with Dowel Pin Inserts (sold separately).

I haven’t used it yet, but I want to comment on the excellent customer service. I bought three of them two for friends and one for myself. One arrived damaged and when I sent a picture of it, I quickly got a response that a new one was being sent out right away. The picture above is an older version the handle is nicer now!
