              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.
