6-Cell Stand-up Soil Blocker

Product ID:7860.07860

Create soil blocks for seeding and transplanting.

Ingenious in design, soil blockers compress the growing medium to form blocks that hold their shape. These blocks can then be seeded or transplanted into. This offers many benefits to the grower:

  • Reduces the need for plastic trays
  • Decreases likelihood of transplants becoming rootbound, as increased air flow between blocks "air prunes" roots
  • Creates healthier, more vigorous transplants due to oxygenated roots
  • Reduces transplant shock

Developed in conjunction with Eliot Coleman. See our Soil Blocker Instruction Manual for how-to information.


  • Makes 6 tall blocks
  • Blocks measure 2 7/8" x 2 3/8" x 2"
  • Potting-up: Seedlings can be started in smaller blocks and transplanted into larger blocks as they grow. The 6-Cell Stand-up Soil Blocker creates square-shaped depressions for potting-up mini blocks made with the 20-Cell Handheld Soil Blocker (#9528)
