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

                    It works well in my tomato success planter. My only problem was that it needs to be in a replenish kit for those of us who need to grow tomatoes in the same container. It is compact, easy to use and the tomatoes seem to like it!

                        Last year I used this product in the white containers used on metal rails. The plants loved it and I did not have to water everyday. I bought more this year to use in other containers. I mixed a bag with an equal amount of potting mix to be used in larger containers ( 18 - 20 Inches)
                        So far the plants are happy which makes me happy.
