I had one of these for years, but didn't use it much because I was unsure about the compost required for making blocks. Recently I have found that a mix of 2 parts Seed Compost (I use Growchar) and 1 part Vermiculite, mixed very wet, works well. I ensure the block maker cells are rammed full of wet compost, compress the blocks slightly on a flat surface (bottom of the potting tidy in my case) and then eject the blocks a row at a time into a seed tray. Having sown the seeds in the dimple formed in the top of each block, I cover them with vermiculite. The blocks remain quite stable until eventually they are reinforced by the roots of the seedlings. I now sow most of my salads, beetroot, brassicas etc. in these blocks.
