    Comments about Container Booster Mix:

    I had several extremely large houseplants that were just too big to repot. They needed a boost, so I just put a couple handfuls of the booster mix on top of the soil. I didn't really expect much to happen, but was surprised to see greener leaves and new growth. The houseplants are thriving, and I am ordering more booster mix to use in containers outdoors.

        Always use this on my tomatoes and peppers in big pots. Renew part of the soil each year and add Booster. Tomatoes and peppers, great!

            Because we are older and don't bend as easily as we once did, my sister and I decided to go to container gardening. The booster was easy to use and the results were gratifying.

                      Comments about Container Booster Mix:

                      I use it in my self watering containers. I am an avid gardener and have two vegetable gardens plus several flower gardens. I fine however that my self watering container gardens are best for growing my greens, lettuces ,and herbs on my deck. I save the soil over numerous years, recharging it with Vermont compost and side dressing several times over the season. I use the very expensive organic self watering container mix so I can't afford to buy new bags every year. I wonder if there is something else I should be adding besides the booster mix

                        My sister and I have been recharging our container mix with what we call Donkey Mix for years. It's much easier than try to find the right mix of other products to give old potting mix the oomff it needs for another season.

                          I have been using this for years and find it indispensable. I use it in the spring, and when potting plants or planting new plants. Really helps growth.
