    Comments about Germinating Mix, 9 Qts.:

    Almost all our seeds germinated in this mix. It is very light and did well in both the cow pots and the new Peel Away pots we tried this year. Only issue it be careful using on a windy day...it is very light. We dampened the mix quickly upon putting it in the pots to keep it from blowing.
