MARYSVILLE, Ohio, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Every gardener in Albuquerque, Colorado Springs and Denver knows not all native soils are created equal. This spring, Miracle-Gro leveled the growing field, launching Expand ‘n Gro Organic Planting Mix, for organic gardening.
This extraordinary, 100 percent natural and organic planting mix can be used anywhere-in ground and in-pots. When used in-ground, Expand ‘n Gro works as a soil amendment, improving soil structure; it also helps in-ground plants grow up to three times larger, as compared to planting in native soil alone.
“Expand ‘n Gro Organic is an innovative, expandable planting mix that is easy-to-use and enriches soil. Every gardener can significantly increase in-ground and container gardening results with Expand ‘n Gro. Incorporating it helps where soils are heavy clays or sands that are difficult to keep right balance between moisture and air in soil,” said Amy Gath, marketing director, Miracle-Gro.
Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Gro Organic Planting Mix is available in major retailers throughout Albuquerque, New Mexico and Colorado Springs and Denver, Colorado as a .67 cubic foot bag that expands up to three times, to make 2 cubic feet of soil at a suggested retail price of $15.99.

- This one of a kind mix is made with all-natural fibers that hold up to 33 percent more water than native soils and changes color to indicate dryness, protecting plants against under watering.
