Exclusive | The Perfect Soil Mix for Self-Watering Containers

  • Lightweight mix wicks water from the reservoir to the root system
  • Well-drained to prevent waterlogged soil
  • Specially formulated for self-watering containers; also great for standard planters

Our field tests prove it: In self-watering planters, this lightweight mix works better than conventional potting soil. Its coarse, airy texture acts like a wick, carrying water from the planter’s reservoir to the root system. The result is more vigorous root growth, better aeration and less waterlogging. It's also an ideal mix for standard pots and planters. Contains sphagnum peat, perlite, vermiculite and limestone. 20-quart bag.

        Comments about Self-Watering Container Mix:

        Makes planter management easier, but still requires a daily inspection for moisture levels.
        I have used this product for several years and it is the best I have found.
        I would like it better if it conntained organic fertilizer or compost. I now add it separately.

          I've tried numerous container growing mediums including "generic" container mixes from local nurseries. I've found your mix to be the best--I give it two green thumbs up!

              I bought a couple bags of the container mix for my self-contained veggie planter. It was lightweight, easy to maneuver and so far so good with plants sprouting and growing. Soil stays moist from self-watering well below. I am happy!

                Self watering containers and window boxes are the best! Beautify flowers and herbs at summer residence even when we are away for 2 weeks. Best yet!

                    I always bought the bagged soil from the gardening center and was disappointed with my garden every year. This year, I ordered the container mix, planted my seeds and after two weeks have seedlings and no damping off. It is the perfect product for self watering planters.

                        We've used it for years in our self-watering containers with excellent results. A year ago we tried our own compost mix in the containers, but the flowers did not grow nearly as well that year.
