Give Away - Miracle Gro Expand 'n Go

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
The good folks over at Miracle Gro have contacted me and asked if I was interested in doing a give away of the Miracle Gro Expand 'n Go product.  Since I'm right in the middle of re-planting my disaster of a garden, I thought I'd give this product a try and offer a give away sample to one of my readers as well.

I've had a vegetable garden for years.  But last year it rained so darn much that I never got a chance to actually plant anything.  My garden space was sadly neglected, grew nothing but weeds, and I did absolutely nothing to supplement the soil.  Fast forward to this spring and thoughts of lucious tomatoes for bruschetta and home grown green and hot peppers for my homemade hot pepper jelly were dancing in my head.
One look at my garden plot and I was in a funk.  What to do?  Enter Miracle Gro Expand and Go,...

• 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
Expand ‘n Gro™
Miracle Gro could not have come at a more appropriate time.  It's suposed to be easy to use, is formulated to give me big and beautiful veggies and is readily available on retailer shelves.  Because it’s a unique blend of Miracle‐Gro plant food and coconut coir fiber, a compact, lightweight, easy‐to‐carry and easy‐to‐store bag of Expand ‘n Gro can do everything a big, heavy bag of soil can do, only better. This concentrated planting mix expands up to 3 times when mixed with water, feeds plants for up to 6 months, makes native soil more workable and retains up to 50% more moisture than basic potting soil.   Why wouldn't I give it a try?

How would YOU like to give it a try as well?  If you follow my blog, just leave a comment on why you'd like to try this product.  If you don't follow my blog, become a new follower and leave me a note in the comments section.  I'd love you send you a sample of Miracle Gro Expand 'n Go.  We can compare notes on how it performs in the fall.  I'm already planning on having lots bruschetta and hot pepper jelly!

  1. I've put in a vegetable garden this year, for the first time. I wants the miracle grow - I have a feeling I'm gonna need it.

  2. Regardless of whether I win or not, I'm going to try this. I have a big problem with water retention. It gets so hot and dry here, my garden usually requires at least 2 waterings a day to keep my veggies happy. Watering more than once a day doesn't sit well with my summer schedule. Thanks for sharing this!

  3. Cool! I only use organic for my veggies (because of the little ones), but I am always looking for a soil that drains well for my plants and flowers, and (at my grandchildren's request) I am expanding my flower bed this year. Love the idea of coconut fiber - lightweight and renewable! I've been trying to improve my soil during the two years I've lived here, but I have a long way to go and I love the idea of something that will get bigger in the garden so that I don't have to carry so many bags! I am also finding that my soil doesn't hold water well and in the summer I sometimes water 3 or 4 times a day, which seems like a waste of resources. I will be looking for this tomorrow because I really need something to enrich my soil quickly!

  4. Is this Miracle-Gro the same Miracle-Gro that makes the plant fertilizer? I have been using that product for years.

    This expand'n gro sounds perfect for large planters that get too heavy when filled with regular soil. I have three large planters that I plant every year for my front porch, and have used several methods to avoid filling the pots with all garden soil. This sounds like something that I would like to give a try, especially since it hold moisture, because planters tend to dry out quickly, and require watering every day.

  5. I'd love to try this product! My garden was a bit wonky last year... too much sun... my squash were cooked before they were even ripe.

  6. Ooo! I'd love to try this stuff. My mom has some veggies growing - it'd e fun to have a little competition with her on who's grow better ;-) I'm a "follower"

  7. It would be interesting to give it a try and compare the performance to my own blend of potting soil. I have doubts about it expanding 3X though.

  8. Ohhhhhh...a giveaway of the garden variety! Yes, would love to enter, please. We are big SFG folks and would love to give this a try.

  9. I am starting a flower garden for the first time. This looks like an awesome product to ensure beautiful flowers.


Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Please leave a message because I love to hear from you!
