    I used this product for the first time this year. I am starting vegetable and flower seeds. They germinated faster than previous years. The plants are healthy and strong. I have had problems with mold in the past, but not with this product.

                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.
