    Very easy to work this soil mix. Growing peas (from seed)and greens (seeds and starts) in a container, and all doing well. I like that it doesn't include fertilizer, so I can add what I want when needed.

        Wanted to grow potatoes for the first time and wanted my first try to be a success. That's why I bought this soil especially for potatoes. The potato seed REALLY like this soil. Within a month plants are two feet tall.

              This product is great for someone who is older and not able to lift heavy weights. I use it to fill the flower and vegetable containers for my deck. It is lightweight to handle, holds the moisture and the plants grow like crazy!
