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.

Never thought I'd be ordering soil!

        Comments about Self-Watering Container Mix:

        Never thought I'd ever order soil online but container soil isn't always easy to find and seeing as I was also ordering window boxes I figure what the heck. Planted cold weather pansies and was impressed with how quickly they took off in this soil. It was light weight but held the water well and the plants really seem to be enjoying it (if that can be said about plants). Not sorry at all that I'd ordered and will most certainly do so again.

          Comments about Self-Watering Container Mix:

          I have been purchasing this soil for a few years for self watering containers with amazing results throughout the long, hot summer months with only minimal watering on a bi-weekly basis. Plants are located on a covered porch and do not get rain water but do get direct afternoon sun and retain the moisture.

              My plants seem to love this better than Miracle Grow planting mix. I use it in all my potted plants. Convenient for me to order online. I hate going to large home and garden stores and standing in line to check out. I will always buy this 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!
