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 soil is great for the self-watering tubs. Water every few days depending on your area. The tubs are portable if you want to protect your plants during a freeze.

                      I purchased the trough on legs and two bags of moisture retaining soil. It was freak soil, not heavy nor full,of chunks or clods. Held water well. Best purchase I've made this year for my planting needs
