          I ordered this product so it was handy and ready to use when I returned north (I'm a snowbird) to start my seeds. My seeds started coming up very quickly in less than a week. I like the fine texture of this mix and it works well in the grow cells I use with a self watering system which I also purchased from you a few years back.

                Every year I start 50 - 60 vegies and the germination mix always gives me 100% starts. In January, with 3ft. of snow on the ground its good to know that I have an edge on spring.

                    I've started seeds in all kinds of different kits & soils, and this is definitely the best that I have tried so far! The seeds just absolutely love it & I do too, and wont use anything else ever again. Simply perfect. Doesn't get any better.

                              I've used this germinating mix for years and would not recommend any other brand but this one! On occasion I've run out and bought something locally, but nothing matches the fine texture and water holding as this one. Even stubborn peppers germinate at about 80% in this mix, fresh tomato seeds are closer to 100%

                                I start all my own seeds and always and I mean always have the best germination rate of many others I have tried. The product wicks perfectly and I share the results I have with many of my garden club friends. I have given demonstrations on how to use it and where to get it. a truly wonderful product.
