        Comments about Drought-Resistant Container Mix:

        I used this mix with the railing planters, and so far, I have been very impressed. I planted flowers a week ago, and they are doing great. I watered the flowers well once I have planted them, and I have not had to water them again this week. We have had a little rain, but not a lot. It has not been as hot as it will get later in the summer, but I'm guessing that, even then, I will only need to water 3 times a week, rather than every day, which is what I have had to do in the past, with anything planted on my deck

          Comments about Drought-Resistant Container Mix:

          This drought-resistant container mix is amazing! It is so light weight, that I didn't need my husband to lug the heavy soil bags to the back yard! The water absorbing polymer in the soil really does what it is supposed to do...keep moisture in the soil so less watering is needed! I am using mine in containers for my garden in my new greenhouse and it works great for new seedlings as well as established plants. You just need to remember to add some plant food every once in a while with your waterings. Overall, an excellent product!

              Nice lightweight soil mix for balcony type flower and herb planters that do not have automatic watering systems. Price for the 32 quart size is very economical, especially after I checked pricing for similar products at the "Big Box" stores.

                  I use this soil in my planters on the deck. In the past my mid-summer all my flowers were dead. I either watered too much or too little...just couldn't win. So far my pansies look great. Will do more planting and wait to see how they look by mid July but so far so good.

                        I use this mixture for my deck railing containers that contain herbs. It is perfect and if I forgot to water for a few nights it's okay because it doesn't dry out too fast.

                        This soil mix has been a lifesaver for me! I travel a lot for work and last year lost many plants to under-watering. This year I used this mix in new pots and my plants are thriving--and I haven't watered them YET! Amazing! For a perfect mix, add a time release plant food. I'll be using this Drought Resistant Container Mix in ALL my pots from now on!
