Exclusive | The Perfect Soil Mix for Self-Watering Containers

  • Lightweight mix wicks water from the reservoir to the root system
  • Well-drained to prevent waterlogged soil
  • Specially formulated for self-watering containers; also great for standard planters

Our field tests prove it: In self-watering planters, this lightweight mix works better than conventional potting soil. 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. Contains sphagnum peat, perlite, vermiculite and limestone. 20-quart bag.

  • Contains sphagnum peat, perlite, vermiculite and limestone

                  This is the best soil-less mix to use with self-watering containers bar none. I've been using it for the past ten years approximately and keep coming back to it even though I've tried others. Plants love it too.

                    Seems to work well. Very light weight. Good with self-watering containers. Stays moist for several days without watering.

                      Purchased in package with 2 self-watering container kits. The tomato plants are some of the largest and healthiest I have grown in 30 years. Pepper plants are beautiful with great amounts of produce. I will certainly purchase this material again next year along with the extension tops for the tomato planters! The plants are that tall!
