Exclusive | Organic Seedstarting Mix Gives Seedlings a Big Head Start

  • Specially formulated mix gives seedlings the best start possible
  • Well-drained blend wicks moisture at the optimal rate for young plants

Can the best seedstarting mix get better? Our tests say yes! This 100% Organic Seedstarting Mix is the new gold standard for starting plants from seed. Sphagnum peat and perlite give it the same fine texture and superior moisture-holding characteristics as our original Germinating Mix.

Recommended for all of our seedstarting systems. 6 quart bag.

    Comments about Organic Seedstarting Mix:

    Using it to start my heirloom seeds. I've had great results thus far with difficult to sprout seeds. Will be adding extra mix to direct sow seeds to aid in germination. Some extra chunks are unnecessary. I would use again despite this. Grow your own money (food)!

    Good product, misleading description

      Comments about Organic Seedstarting Mix:

      As others have noted, the texture isn't as fine as it could be, but my seeds are doing well despite the coarse texture. The real problem is the claim (in the product details section) that "one bag fills 4 APS-24s." In fact, one bag barely fills 2 APS-24s. I might have guessed as much if I'd read the description of the 9-qt bag of non-organic seedstarting mix, which also claims to fill 4 APS-24s; a 6-qt bag and a 9-qt bag have different volumes by definition!

        My 5 year dives right into the dirt and I feel confident he's safe to be elbow deep in this.

          Comments about Organic Seedstarting Mix:

          I have tried many seedstarting products and this product is the best. My plants (vegetables, herbs and flowers)all are so beautiful. The mix is so airy so the roots can grow nicely. I plant two plants together in a seed cell and when I take the plants out to transplant them, there are so many healthy looking roots all through the mix and I can separate the two plants nicely without a problem. Once you try this product, you will never want to go back to other seedstarting products. You may find some hard small pieces of wood, but that's just part of being organic; just pick them out. The price is somewhat high, but anything organic is priced high. Once you see how nice your plants grow, this mix is well worth the price. I grow all my vegetables organically and the best thing is that you start those wonderful seeds off being organic. Good luck gardening :)

          Comments about Organic Seedstarting Mix:

          To my dismay,the organic seed starting mix still has not changed!
          It's just too chunky for small seeds and seed starter pots and more like a transplant medium.
          I prefer the texture of the non-organic seed starter. Please change the texture of the organic seed starter to a finer grade, since I like to use as many organic products as possible.

            A nice product -- beware there are some larger chunks of wood in it so if you want a very smooth soil you will have to sift through it.

              My tomato, pepper, and herb seeds seemed to do a lot better this year using this mix. The plants are bigger and healthier. I will use this mix again to start seeds. I feel better about using this mix because the mix I used last year (different brand) told me to check online for "metal content". I will stick with Gardener's Supply Organic Mix.
