    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.

                  Comments about Germinating Mix, 9 Qts.:

                  This Germinating Mix is the nicest seed starting soil medium I have found. The small bags have enough to fill several seed starting system trays, but not too big to be heavy or hard to store. The soil moistens more easily than other mediums, compacts easily in seed starting system cells, maintains moisture level evenly, and is not prone to mold growth. It also nicely blends with other mixes for established potted plants.

                  I use this germinating mix in Gardener's Supply APS systems for starting most spring seeds. I also use it in small peat pots for starting a few lettuce plants at a time in the fall. This product always delivers consistent results.

                  I have had 100% success using this germinating mix. Other brands include large particles and perlite in their germinating mixes which impact the germination rate of smaller seeds in the seed starting system I use.
