    Comments about Container Booster Mix:

    I bought this booster mix long ago, and loved it. GS is now selling it, so I'm happy! It works well with some of my vegetables in containers, and I also try to rejuvenate my potted perennials each year with this mix. It's also from Vermont--enough said!

    Rejuvenate spent potting soil

      Comments about Container Booster Mix:

      I have used this product for several years and I love it. It is especially useful for very large containers because it means you don't have to replace all the spent soil and disturb the plants.

      All I do now is remove the top few inches of spent soil, scratch a handful or two of the booster mix into the remaining soil and then replace the top two inches with fresh soil. The plants seem to thrive and I save lots of money on fresh potting soil each year.

        This time I added a bag to potting soil that had weathered the AZ summer driness. The added "boost" allowed me to successfully replant this fall without having to add anything else. So far so good.

          Comments about Container Booster Mix:

          I plant about 60-70 containers during any given year. I could not afford to replace my container mixes every year. This has recharged my depleted soil better than any so called slow release fertilizer. This is a no brainer for potted plants. I highly recommend it!

              Days after using this product, my raised bed shot up hundreds if not thousands of weed seedlings. I have been weeding for weeks and they are still coming up. I will never purchase again and I advise anyone NOT to buy this product.

                    Not having a lot of sun where I have soil, I plant my vegetables in large containers on my patio and walk ways. Instead of having to replace the soil each year, I simply add in the booster and plant my veggies. They grow beautifully and I save time and effort. I also use it with my potted plants each spring when getting them ready to put outside.

                      I grow in containers, live in a condo and do not have any place to throw away used soil - so I use the Container Booster Mix to freshen up the old soil. It is pest free and organic, which is important to me. I replaced the top 4 inches of the old soil with the Booster Mix, mixed it down into about 3 inches of the remaining soil, and then planted. My plants are growing very well, are healthy and vigorous. I get compliments all the time on my mixed containers. I know it is the Container Booster Mix that has made the huge difference in the way my plants thrive. I trust the plants and products bought from Gardner's Supply Company!!!

                        • Beautiful, bountiful planters depend on good soil, fertilizer and careful watering. But to take your planters from standard to sensational, you need the right plants. Start with this simple rule: Combine plants with three different habits. In other words, thrillers, fillers and spillers.
