        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.

            Comments about Container Mix, 20 Qts.:

            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!

            This is the best container mix I have found. As I am an elderly person, I appreciate that it comes in 20 lb bags. I am able to lift and maneuver them.
