      Comments about Germinating Mix, 9 Qts.:

      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.

                        Comments about Germinating Mix, 9 Qts.:

                        Tried another Gardener's product, an "organic" starting soil that was a disaster. I did it as an experiment as I had used this product before and was happy with it. The other, "organic" product was full of twigs and I had an seedling emergence rate of about 40 %. This germinating mix is easy to use and I have a 95 % success rate with it. My use starts indoor in early February under grow lights and then late March the ytrays are moved to the greenhouse or the seedings are transplanted and moved to the greenhouse.
