Additional Information

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.

                I used the product in my two self watering pots. It gave a a good support for tomatoes. The harvest was very good for 6 weeks during the very hot summer we have in Texas.

                Easy to work with. I just feel it is a little spendy when compared to other bagged soil.

                  I use it mixed with my old garden soil in the self watering containers for perennials and they have held up these many years . perfect for this El Paso dry weather.

                      I tried to save some money by purchasing self watering container mix from a big box store. There was no comparison. The Gardeners Supply container mix was much richer, much lighter and able to absord more water. Going forward I won't use anything else.
