Are you tired of lifting heavy bags of potting soil, and trying to find places to store what's left over after a project? Your problems are solved with a tube of Wonder Soil™ Wafers. Just a cup of water, and one soil wafer expands to 14 times its original volume.

Great for seed starting, one wafer fills a 4-inch pot. Or add water to all 18 in the 1-pound tube and you'll have the equivalent of a 10-pound bag of regular potting soil. This lightweight, soilless medium is made of coconut coir, peat moss and water-absorbing polymers.

An excellent potting mix for all types of plants, including houseplants, palms, cacti and container vegetables.

Allows you to mix only the amount of potting soil you need when you need it, extra wafers store away until you need them again.

Wonder Soil is fertilizer-rich dehydrated peat which expands when you add water. One 14 oz. container is equivalent to 10 lbs. of regular soil. Its coir-peat mixture with polymers and nutrients allows it to absorb, store and release water so that you have to water your plants much less often than you would with normal potting soil.

  $12.95  Per tube of 18 wafers.
New! Improved and Enhanched Wonder Soil Reground®
Wonder Soil Reground is made from Wonder Soil wafers that have been reground into thousands of expanding granules. And then Mycorrhizae, biosol, lime, gypsum and kelp starter nutrients are added. Easy to pour and expand where needed. A one lb. bag expands to 10 lbs. when rehydrated with water. Wonder Soil Reground is easier to use and slightly more economical than wafers.

And what is the difference between the two anyway?

The Sun Analyzer is designed to measure how sunny, or how shady, individual garden locations are. Terms like full sun, shade and partial shade make sense when converted to measurable numbers. Easy to use. Point the solar cell of the Sun Analyzer directly at the sun. Record the reading. Repeat at various times throughout the day.

Saltpeter for Seed Germination

Most species of seeds have hard casings to protect the seed "embryo". For most of these "hard" seeds, the outer shell must be scarred, scratched or softened in some way. Some species take up to a year to germinate and will need help in the beginning to get the shell softened. Most varieties of slow germinating seeds will turn black and rot if there is not sufficient heat in the soil (75 to 90 degrees F. for most species) or if the soil dries out or is allowed to remain too wet, which will encourage the growth of one or another of the varieties of fungus or mold. It is important to speed up germination and to get the plants growing as soon as possible in order to avoid potential problems.

Anyone who has soaked dried beans before cooking is familiar with the process of softening up the shell. When the outer shell is softened it allows the contents to expand. Potassium Nitrate (Saltpeter) can help in softening up these outer shells. It is available in many drug stores, but for those who have difficulty obtaining a small amount, we offer 1 tablespoon packets for $1.95.

Soak the seeds in a solution of ¼ tablespoon of the Saltpeter to one pint of warm water for at least 24 hours. Do not allow the seeds to dry out but sow them immediately using the remaining solution to water the soil or other growing medium. Soak several species of seeds at once in smaller containers of the same solution and have the containers of growing medium or soil ready for planting as soon as the soaking period is complete.
