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.

        Comments about Self-Watering Container Mix:

        Theses 20 pound bags are the perfect size for me to carry through my house to my deck. They are very manageable and light weight which makes the task of filling all the Self-Watering pots I have on my deck. At this point of the summer, they seem to hold the moisture much longer that regular potting soil, but I won't know for sure, until the August heat hits.

                          I have had the tomato self water container for many years and always purchase the self watering container mix. I have this at our cottage and there can be two weeks when I am not there to water. But the container and the mix work well and always have a nice crop of tomatoes.

                            I put two tomatoes on one old growing container I purchased from you a long time ago Always get tomatoes and with sweet 100's they grow way beyond where I can reach and I need to top the plant. LOVE this soilless mix and fertilizer.

                              I bought this soil for container gardening but it works just as well in small tight spots that do not do well if the weather has been dry. Any plants that we have planted this summer using this soil around the plants has thrived and never looks like it needs moisture.
