SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY!

We used Scott's regular potting soil for many years with good results. It's always been our "go-to product" for all potted plants. Two years ago, we switched to the "moisture control" product and noticed a world of difference. Its added ingredients definitely helps to prevent killing plants due to over/under watering, especially with delicate herbs, like basil. This is our 3rd year of satisfied use and we have no regrets in spending the extra money on this potting soil. Last year, we prepared 2 planters with identical herbs. A less-expensive competitor's brand potting soil, advertising moisture control, was used in one. The Scott's planter provided the "winning herbs" for that season. As our review photo shows, the 2015 planter is another success.

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.

Potting Medium for Geraniums and Spike Plants?

Pros

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

      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.

                  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.

                                I have been a horticulturist for 40 years and after using several bags this I feel that my plants are the worst I have every grown. 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.

                                    this product increases the % of rooting when used with a hormonal enhancer. When rooting shrubs, roses, or dividing daisies to pass along to friends, the quality is excellent!

                                        Worst Potting Soil I ever bought. 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 :(

                                            I purchased this and planted tomatoes, etc. Many of my plants are withering up and dying. 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.

                                                      This has to be the worst product from Scotts by far. One wheel is hard to turn when full. Handle broke after less the a half dozen uses. Get a regular spreader to save on a headache.

Not only is the soil soft well mixed but my plant have been flourishing from the nutrients already in the soil. I have not planted a plant that has not flourished from it. I also use it in my outside planters and it holds moisture well. The outdoor plants do as well as my indoor plants. Thank You Miracle Grow!!

The potting soil is never clumpy, which makes for easy handling while re-potting plants.

I simply add a cubic foot of this product in each 18 x 18 by 12 inch individual hole and mix it with indigenous soil to get a fabulous planting mix! Newly planted bushes simply take off!
