Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use it directly or do I need to mix it with conventional soil?

Is wonder soil a top soil? Can I use wonder soil directly or do I need to mix it with conventional soil?
Asked by: schneew
This product is worst than any Top soil I ever bought. I wasted $140 and got bad result on my squash plants.

I have a Garden Tower 2. It has a soil capacity of 6 cubic feet. How many 11lb bricks of Wondersoil would I need to buy

Asked by: Crysk
Make your own soil with equal parts of peat moss or coir, perlite or (and/or vermiculite), sand or fully decomposed compost. You can add rock dust, fertilizer, blood meal, colloidal phosphate, greensand and mix thoroughly. 1 block of this coir will give you about 5-6 cu ft. HD has 2 cu ft bag of OMRI vermiculite and bags of compost (be careful of HD compost I had green worms in mine who ate my lettuce & vegie plants). Enjoy.

does it contain peat moss

I prefer not to use any products with peat moss, due to its negative environmental impact. This looks like a great product if it is peat moss-free. Thank you. What is the complete list of ingredients?
Asked by: MP
no. Use in place of peat.

what is expand and plant cube used for?

Asked by: sidsy
I use it as an easy way to get a large amount of potting soil. It comes as a very dense and solid block that you have to re-hydrate. When you re-hydrate it, it expands into a couple cubic feet of potting soil (so be sure to re-hydrate it in a big tub). After it is re-hydrated, you can use it just like any other potting soil.

2-1/2 cu. ft. Premium Expand and Plant Complete Mix Coco Cube is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 63.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is a very simple and clean way to fill your raised bed garden. I was able to plant my garden in no time and with very little help. My soil was delivered to my door and it is compact enough that I able to lift the little bales of soil to the garden myself. You actually add water and fluff. My seedlings also seem to love this Wonder Soil, they have been in the soil for only one week and it is clear that they are established already!

They expand as advertised and are 3 to 4 times lighter to handle before expanding then bags of soil/manure/etc.. I did find I needed to add fertilizer for vegetables. The fertilizer included did not begin to meet the needs of the plants I grew but with added fertilizer I got very well rooted onions, carrots and a number of other vegetables.

I am planting fruit trees here in Phoenix. So I am hoping this product will help retain moisture while also allowing for good drainage in our clay soil. It is easy to rehydrate the block of dry coconut coir and scrap off as much as you want to use. It is very soft and easy to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome soil! Our front yard was completely bare. We used these soil cubes as top soil and planted seed. You have to wet the cubes to break the soil up and then spread it out with a dirt rake. Within 4 weeks we have a beautiful lush lawn. This stuff is amazing

I'm trying to use coir instead of peat moss for my soil block. This is my first time away from making soil with out peat but I expect good results.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from disappointing I wanted to love these cubes but sadly, they are kinda disappointing and a pain. I am an avid vegetable gardener that absolutely hates lugging around bags of compost, so when I read the reviews online for these cubes, I was so excited to try them, despite the price, which I figure is at least triple the cost of bags. Decided to order 5 as a start, just to see how things went, with the hopes of ordering more. Thankfully, that is all I ordered as yes--I was disappointed and will not be ordering more. Here's what I found--these cubes do expand when water is added, but to maybe just 3 times the initial size at max. Certainly not the 2 1/2 cubic feet advertised and certainly not enough to justify the cost. The product itself is of good quality, fairly "pure" and clean, but let me tell you, they take FOREVER to expand from the water. I think each cube took an hour to expand fully as you have to water the cubes somewhat slowly (or the water runs off the cube) and who the heck has that much time to water/watch/supervise each brick watering? OMG. Seriously? I imagine for specific uses, such as container planting on rooftop or something where heavy bags are cumbersome that these cubes are ideal, but for regular gardening from now on, I will opt for bags in the future.
