          Bought this while buying other things. Wanted to try somthing different. Outstanding.

          This mixture is very, very light. Root growth on cabbage seed was exceptional, tomatoes very good and peppers as good as any but peppers really don't explode until the heat comes anyway.

          I'll definately use this next year.

                I use this product for seed starting and for repotting delicate seedling. There are no lumps, large pieces.
                The product is easy to work with and the seeds can pop right through unlike some products.
                I never use anything else.
