At 4'10" and 61 years old this product has made my life 100% easier when it comes to lawn care. All I have to do is snap the needed product (seed, fertilizer, etc.) onto the spreader and use it. Then I easily remove the empty bag and it is ready to use with the next product. It is lightweight and easy to push. There is no mess, no fuss, no heavy bags to carry from store to car to shed. It is like the makers were thinking of the single woman who has to care for the lawn alone. Thank you Scotts.

I'm not sure what has happened to this product because the wife and I purchased it off last year's reviews. We purchased 14 bags from Lowes to fill our raised garden beds and were taken back with its contents. Soil? Where was the soil? All 14 bags were dirt colored twig and fibrous mulch, not to mention several pieces of plastic we had to pick out. We decided to fill the beds anyway thinking we were just crazy only to find freshly grown mushrooms days later. We have no mushrooms anywhere else in our entire backyard; we only have mushrooms inside the Miracle-Gro Garden "Soil" filled raised garden beds. Its upsetting because we've already planted the tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, cucumbers & canteloupe and they aren't doing very well. About 3 weeks ago we decided to transplant a zucchini in the dirt beside the garden bed as a comparison. The results are staggering! The zucchini leaves in our yard soil are deep green and approximately 3-4 larger. The garden bed zucchini is smaller and has a yellow-green color in contrast.

"Grows plants twice as big versus unfed plants."? Not from our experience with this product, in fact it was the reciprocal effect.

We've heard of the good name of Miracle-Gro when growing up so we decided to try it. We want to give the products a second chance but are hesitant with this experience.

    What changed in this soil? I've always had good luck but this year was different. My peppers were stunted the leaves the size of peas, another just looked clorotic all year, I used this along with miracle gro plant food. No bugs or disease. Even blooming plants did not do well, new rose leaves the size of peas, very disappointing I will try another brand next year.

    Fungus gnats, seemingly an old story

      Comments about Miracle Gro 1 Cu. Ft. Garden Soil For Flowers And Vegatables (73451430):

      I know now I'm late to this party, but it took me re-potting 2 plants over the course of a few months, and getting fungus gnats suddenly in both before i thought to check if there was a connection to the soil I was using. Lo and behold, Miracle-Gro seems to have quite a reputation online for harboring fungus gnats, which are a huge pain to deal with in your house. I know Miracle-Gro has their standard response about it being a natural product and thus prone to infestation etc blah blah. But no other soil seem to have the problem as consistently as theirs so, natural or not, they may want to think about doing something to combat the problem. I certainly wont be buying any more Miracle-Gro until they do.

          I've been using this product for years. It used to work very well to keep the plants watered and healthy. It seems to me that Miracle-Gro changed the formula for this product. Because I have to water the plants almost every day and some days twice a day. The moisture control soil does not seem to retain the water like it used to. I will not buy it next year.

              I bought this in May when I ran out of my other potting soil. I went to our local hardware store and this was the only kind they carried. So I bought a couple bags. I wasn't pleased because of the cost difference, but now I am extremely happy I did! The difference in the flowers with this potting soil and the other is crazy. I wanted to post pics bc it is such a huge difference! I highly recommend this. I never write reviews. But I had to with this product.

                  When planting my window planter boxes I ran out of Miracle-Gro Moisture Control potting soil so I ran to the local quick mart and picked up a cheap bag of moisture control potting soil thinking it would probably work just as well. I wont be making that mistake again. you can see for yourself the difference after only 2 weeks!

                        For the first time ever, I decided I would buy a plant and pot it. Being young and reckless, I figured moisture control would be something I need because I have no idea what I am doing.

                        WOW, this stuff really helps you control the moisture level in your plant. I WAY over-watered my plant (recall that I am young and reckless) and this stuff sucked it up like nothing and kept my fledgling plant from dying.

                                Has the potting mix change? The two bags I bought in spring 2017, had lots of debris, wood chips, bark, etc. Didn't look like the potting mix I have bought in the past. Looked like what I have bought for garden soil.

                                    Purchased this regularly for years & it used to be potting soil (you know, the visibly brown light stuff with the white styrofoam balls & some small bark) BUT... The past few bags I've bought were straight up dark black muddy mix with mostly sticks & old wood chips poor man's top soil that leaves a very gray murky residue everywhere. This stuff has done nothing but smother & kill off my plants (indoor & outdoor potted plants). Never again will I use this anywhere.

                                      I used miracle grow soil to transplant some viola's that I had started from seeds ,when I started the seeds I used miracle grow seed starting mix and I had a bunch of spider mites, the soil was just crawling with tons of small spiders. When I transplanted them to bigger pots I got miracle grow potting soil and a bag of African violets mix and that was full of mold when I opened the bag ,I took that back and used the potting soil ,so now I have hundreds of small gnat's flying around and thousands of small white spots under the leaves.they are larvae and small hatched ones. After reading up on this I find out that all of the white spots under the leaves are feeding on the leaves,they suck the fluid out of the plant and kill it!! So after all of that hard work all of the plants are dead and I'm still dealing with all of these bugs!!!

                                          I used this mix to pot some geraniums and spike plants. I found it to be quite heavy and difficult to work with. I don't believe that the plants did as well this past growing season as they might have in a lighter, more friable mix - one with more peat moss and/or vermiculite.

                                              Don't understand all the negative comments when using as potting mix. It's garden soil (read)

                                                  First time using this product. Have never had my flower plants get so big or blossom so much. They look beautiful.

                                                      I don't like the performance. Plants potted in this soil haven't performed (and some died). The regular MiracleGro or Organic MiracleGro are your best bets. I don't recommend Moisture Control AT ALL.

                                                          If you want to kill your plants, this stuff will do it. My wife and have been gardening for over 40 years, we are in our middle 60's. This stuff will not drain. It retains the water for an extremely long time. We have lost over $30.00 in plants this summer. We are not upset about the cost, we are upset over the dying plants... we don't kill plants. This stuff will look like it is completely dry, but when tested with a moisture meter we found that the roots are drowning in water. I guess it would be great for bog plants, but for plants where you water and expect the water to drain, it never happens. In order to save the plants we had to throw away the moisture control and re-pot with regular Miriacle Gro soil, which does an excellent job. I never in my life thought I would have anything bad to say about a Miracle Gro product, we could always count on Miracle Gro for a great product, however this stuff is a nightmare.

They look bad and as far as moisture control I have to water every single day. The product it self looks like ground up bark from a stump grinding machine. I should have known after first bag that it was inferior. Especially for the price. Also have 3 miracle-gro feeders that do not work.

Been growing houseplants for years and I am pro at it. bought this Soil to replant some plants, a week later, I have MOLD growing on the top soil of my plants, I removed it etc. Weeks went by, and I noticed my plants are not really growing anymore, could not figure out why ? Took one plant out of its pot and I noticed the soil is completely wet. Can only be a matter of time before the roots begin to die :(

They are drying up which is definitely not due to lack of water. It is ridiculous to spend extra money for a product that is advertised to eliminate this problem only to have the plants die. Will not buy it in future.
