        Comments about Germinating Mix, 9 Qts.:

        I wanted to try growing some plants from seed that I couldn't find in local nurseries. I haven't had much luck with seedlings in the past, so got this soil as part of one of the kits sold here, with individual seeding trays, using water trays with capillary matting. I've had almost every seed sprout and the seedlings are coming along nicely.

              This is the best seed germinating mix I have ever tried. I have used this product for many years. I like it because you can start the smallest of seeds. It is not heavy mix.

                  I used the potting mix for some herbs I am planting indoors. Worked great. Takes in a good amount of water.
