        Best for new plants in containers; and old ones will benefit as well. Great idea for this product--I haven't seen anything similar that is designed just for these plants. Looking forward to better results this year.

            I have been buying this soil mix for years. Light and easy to use. I use it in all my flower boxes and planters. Flowers and plants are happy! At the end of the season I put it in my compost pile, so it can be reused in my regular flower beds the next year.

              cleaner than bags of soil purchased at box stores; but not soil for raised bed as described by customer service person. Great for flowers in pots. Bit more expensive than other places.

                    Comments about Container Mix, 20 Qts.:

                    This is a very nice mix for container gardening. It is relatively light because it is made up of peat moss, perlite, vermiculite and limestone. It is fluffy so it holds a fair bit of water and drains well. Because it's light it doesn't compress as much on roots and stems.

                    The bag contains 20 quarts so imagine 5 gallons for milk. That's how much you get, so it will depend on how big your container is how far this will go.

                    I've been using this mix for almost ten years and like it very much.

                        The best container mix I have found. I couldn't mix a soil as good as this and it's so convenient.

                        This mix was used to start seedlings and then when the plants were large enough some was mixed into compost, a garden mix, perlite, vermiculite, and other amendments that add trace minerals for healthy plant and root growth. The plants are being grown in growing bags and they are growing up to two inches per day. This is the best year my husband and I have had and our mouths are watering just waiting for the harvest!
