Gardening Ideas

This post brought to you by Scotts®. All opinions are 100% mine.

I was so excited when I was asked to do a review of Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix.

You see, I LOVE flowers but have never had much success with them.

My mom knows a lot more about them than I do so I thought I would take the mix to her so she could show me how it’s done.

Don’t her flowers look GORGEOUS!!

You can see from the pics below that she knows which flowers to plant at the right time and with the right soil.

Would you like to try out the Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix too?


All you have to do is leave a comment below saying why you’d like to try it out.

I will pick one winner next Saturday. :)

Some good things to know about Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix:

-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 added

-Feeds for up to 6 months

-All natural fibers hold up to 50% more water than basic potting soil

I can’t wait to try this soil out on my own flowers so that my garden will be luscious and beautiful like my mom’s.

I’ve also seen a ton of awesome Garden and Flower ideas on Pinterest and wanted to share those with you…

    I love plants and flowers, but have gotten a little lax in taking care of them lately. I have a jar of cuttings rooting in water and they desperately need to be planted before the roots get too long. This planting mix would be perfect!

    I just moved into a new home and would lOve to spruce it up!! Thanks for the chance!

    We have been trying to improve our horrible soil and grow something other than weeds since we moved into this house. The planting mix would be so wonderful. It may even help me revive the plant I forgot about and left in my garage over the winter (miraculously, it still has a flicker of life).

    I really try but I am gardening challenged, anything that might help would be greatly appreciated!

    Oh, wow – our garden here has failed miserably every year! Don’t know what to do, but I’d love to try this!!!

    I would love to try it for if it will help grow flowers and plants….well it’s a miracle for sure! My mother always told me I did not inherent her green thumb! So I need all the help I can get!

    I would love to win this because I have always been the brown thumb person. I have failed and maybe with this I could start with planters and try again slowly!! thanks for the giveaway!

    I just bought my first home and I would love to have a beautiful front lawn/garden. I know Miracle Gro is a great product and i would love to win a free sample so please enter me in the giveaway.

    I would love to try it. I too, have failed at gardening. The only success is our raspberry patch that we have transplanted 3 times. Love picking those in July!

    Our soil is so hard and needs quite a bit of maintenance, which doesn’t always happen. My roses seem to take the biggest brunt of it. I would love to get them back to how beautiful they were when we first moved in.

    I would love to try this product. I have a brown thumb, but I am determined that this is my year to it into a green thumb. Trust me, I need all the help I can get.

    I’ve had 3 weddings in my backyard with gorgeous flowers in the colors of the bride and groom;s choice but in the last 2 years my flowers have not been very productive and I am worried as I still have 3 weddings to go. Each year when there isn’t a wedding I practice and the last two years would have been a disaster. I need help and hope maybe this is the answer!

  20. 21

    We have just started a garden. Thanks for this post. Every bit of information helps!

    Please put me in the drawing!
    Lately, I’ve gotten really motivated to try my hand at gardening. I find that I’m not that good at it and I’m looking at other alternatives that might give me an edge! ;-D

    I am teaching a class on container gardening the first of May and I’d love to try Miracle Gro’s Expand ‘n Gro before I do. Sounds like it might simplify and beautify the concept of gardening in pots. Love the cute ideas here (will definitely tell my group about your site!).

    Gardening is an endless job, with many pitfalls. It doesn’t take much to completely ruin a beautiful garden by planting the wrong plants, or not planting them correctly. We have plenty of articles to make sure that everything goes as planned. From planting to weeding and poisons to plant food. Never worry that you will get it wrong when you have a resource like directweb helping you.;’
