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.

    Comments about Germinating Mix, 9 Qts.:

    Almost all our seeds germinated in this mix. It is very light and did well in both the cow pots and the new Peel Away pots we tried this year. Only issue it be careful using on a windy day...it is very light. We dampened the mix quickly upon putting it in the pots to keep it from blowing.

              I used this product for the first time this year. I am starting vegetable and flower seeds. They germinated faster than previous years. The plants are healthy and strong. I have had problems with mold in the past, but not with this product.
