        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.

                      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.
