Highest Quality Seed Start Soil Mix

By smkypara

Pros

  • Maintains Even Moisture
  • Not Dusty
  • Small Lightweight Bag

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Seed starting

    Comments about Germinating Mix, 9 Qts.:

    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.

    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.
