        Second year I used this mix for starting tomatoes, peppers, parsley and flowers indoors before the planting season. Seeds germinate quickly with the help of your heat mat. Easy to work with. Remember to mix with warm water to dampen the mix to make it easier on your self and the seedlings will be popping up within 3-4 days.

          Comments about Germinating Mix, 9 Qts.:

          I usually order the germinating mix and different size cow pots to start a variety of seeds that will eventually be transplanted into our vegetable garden. I don't have a fancy setup--no grow lights or anything--just some large sunny windows. The arrangement works because it's flexible. The germinating mix is light and gets the seedlings off to a strong start. The cow pots are wonderful, because once the seedlings reach a certain size and are hardened off, it's so easy to just plant the whole pot with its seedling into the outdoor vegetable garden with no transplant shock.

                    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.
