Exclusive | Organic Self-Watering Container Mix for Healthy Plants

  • Specially formulated mix provides optimal growing conditions for container plants
  • Amazing water wicking action delivers water to roots with no waterlogging
  • Lightweight, well-drained blend is 100% organic; OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) listed

With a base of sustainably-harvested Canadian peat moss, perlite and limestone fortified with beneficial mycorrhizae and sea-based compost, this lightweight container mix promotes vigorous plant growth and good aeration at the roots. Its coarse, airy texture acts like a wick, carrying water from the planter’s reservoir to the root system. The result is more vigorous root growth, better aeration and less waterlogging. It's also an ideal mix for standard pots and planters. 20-quart bag.

100% Organic
  • Contains peat moss, perlite, limestone, sea-based compost (from composted shrimp shells and seaweed) and mycorrhizae
  • 20-quart bag
  • OMRI-certified
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

      Rocks are not lightweight

      By Kelly

      Comments about All-Organic Self-Watering Container Mix:

      This had rocks and tiny flies in it. I'm not particularly happy with this purchase. I just don't think that a lightweight soil should have stones, and I really don't appreciate starting out with bugs in my containers. In the future, I'll stick with the conventional container soil, not organic.

        Holds moisture well in our dry climate. A little more expensive than buying local brands, but was worth the cost to not have to haul 8 bags of soil home from the store.

              Comments about All-Organic Self-Watering Container Mix:

              I'm a first time plants-from-seeds grower and this soil worked just fine. Of course I don't have any comparison but the seeds all germinated. I had them on the window sill and kept them under a plastic wrap for about a week, airing sporadically and ensuring that they didn't dry out (and without sterilizing he soil first) everything worked great!

                  I have used this organic container mix in GS self-watering tubs to grow vegetables (esp. tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant) for several years and have been consistently pleased with the results. The mix far exceeds the quality of available native soil and combined with the self-watering container allows edibles to receive even moisture as well, reducing the chance of tomato blossom end rot.

                  I have used this product for some years now, in the self- watering containers, for flowers & vegetables. The plants thrive in this soil so I continue to buy it.
                  I have used this soil while living inland & coastal areas of OR & CA, in addition to having it shipped to Germany (to US post address) while living there.

                    In a crunch, due to moving in the spring, I purchased organic potting soil that was not "The Dirt" from Gardeners. What a diappointment!!!!!!!!
                    The stuff had more woodchips than soil and the plants responded accordingly. Keep up the good work!
