Soil Block Makers are spring-loaded tools that form and compress the soil mixture into blocks. Once ejected, each block has an indentation at the top of the cube to plant your seed. Soil Block Makers are available at Amazon and other places online. Seek out the quality Ladbrooke brand and it will last forever.
