        Comments about Container Booster Mix:

        I have used the same soil in my VetTrug for three years now. Each spring I mix in two bags of the Container Booster Mix and the All Purpose Fertilizer and we are good to grow for another season. This year my radishes I planted after regenerating the soil literally jumped up to say hi!

            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!

              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.

                          • 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.
