Rated 1 out of 5 by from 56.6L? and "Moisture Control"?!! I bought 10 bags of it yesterday, it was on sale, although in-store they still have outdated price. Loosing so many customers!!! SO... I use Smart Pots 15 GL, 18 inches diameter, 14.5 inches height. It will make 60.43 litres if we fill such pot up to top corner. However, I use a bag and a half of 56.6L "Potting Mix" for each 15 GL pot, and I still have 3 inches height of empty space on top of a pot!!! 56.6 litres you say? Moisture control?!! I didn't notice any volume increase after pouring few gallons of water into it. Yes I know there are chemicals which can absorb water up to 30x times (and increase in volume accordingly); "Soil Moist" for example; I was expecting something like that. This is not the case!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS Used this stuff on a few of my plants. They all got sick. A couple died. $40 worth of dead plants + $15 for the dirt. An expensive lesson.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well This potting mix is doing as intended, it was also used on the lawn along with new grass seed in areas for which the grass was not growing. New growth is appearing within one weeks time.

Is this product good for both vegetables and flowers?

Asked by: David
My answer to this question is yes . I have used this product a few times as starter mix to raise vegetable seedlings; tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, cucumbers in containers and, I also spread and mix it with the garden soil prior to transplanting the seedlings. My seedlings grew faster, healthier and longer than I expected. My garden was green with tall plants and fruited so much. The tomato fruits in particular were very big. This was in the summer of 2020. I am using this product again this year and my seedlings are growing with over 95 percent rate

Can I use this to plant evergreens in a large container?

Asked by: MJs Mom
Yes this potting soil works well in big pots for evergreens. However if you plan to keep the evergreen in the pot over winter, the pot should be insulated to avoid the freezing of the roots. I have done this and used styrafoam inside the pot sides before adding the soil and plant. My evergreens have lasted years in pots when this is done. Good luck!

Would this be a good soil for a lavender plant?

Asked by: ReaperQueen
Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix can be used when planting lavender in containers. Lavender survives well in dry conditions, so you&rsquo;ll only have to water when the top 2 inches of soil are dry.
