Using soil blockers to grow plants is an ancient Mexican technique which has been adapted for the modern home and commercial gardener. A soil block is a compressed unit of soil blocking mix which holds together negating the need for planting in a pot. As seeds germinate and grow, their roots eventually reach the edge of the block, where they become exposed and 'air pruned'. This means they stop growing from the tip and develop a branched root system within the ladbrooke soil block. In a pot these roots would continue to grow and if not potted, can wrap around the inside of the existing pot causing the plant to become "root bound'. A 'root bound' plant can suffer poor growth after it has been transplanted.
