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

              We still have some snow so have not used the container mix yet. We did use it last year and had the best tomatoes ever. We, and our neighbors, were very pleased with the mix. That is why we bought more for this year and are anxiously awaiting warn and planting weather.

                I use it for all my self-watering pots on the deck. It's a more expensive than the big box stores, but it does seem of higher quality (e.g., good texture, less filler junk) so I've ordered a bunch more.

                It's great that you state how many quarts of soil are needed for self-watering pots.
