Has anyone use soil blocks to start seeds? If so, any advice.

Do you mean compressed potting medium blocks? Yes, I've used them a bit, and others here have used them a lot. the one thing to remember is they may not have a lot of nutrition, so when the plant outgrows the block, repot in a good rich potting mix.
