        this is the first year I've used this germinating mix for my seedlings and I was pleasantly surprised at the excellent results so far. My seedlings have sprouted and are doing very well so far! Will use again next year for sure!

          I start most of my annual flowers in the house with grow lights. I use the germinating mix because it is a sterile mix and I do not have any damping off. I have used it for 10 years or more. Mary Cullen

            I used the germinating mix in the My Greens Light Garden. The seeds germinated in less time than the seed packets said they should. Great!! Enough mix left over to grow different types of lettuce this fall/winter.

                  This mix holds the right amount of moisture for starting seeds and young plants. My plants hardly ever suffer from damping off when I use this mix.

                    These APS units are very nice! Great for starting a whole bunch of seeds. Use these and you won't have so many tiny little pots to haul around. The large APS lets you grow seeds like tomatoes and peppers to a size that you can plant directly out in the garden.

                      I've been gardening for 40 years and tried every seed starting mix I could get my hands on. The only one I've never had a problem with and gives me 100 germination is Gardner's Supply Mix. It's a waste of time and money not to use it!
