I got 10 bags of 2 cubic ft Miracle-Gro Potting Mix. I had a lot of single, double, and hanging pots to fill up. The soil USE TO BE POOR Quality and I use to have to add worm castings to enrich the soil..BUT NOW, WOW IS IT GREAT!!! It also feeds for up to 6 months. I live in Florida and I noticed it is packaged in Ohio. I am EXTREEMLY HAPPY with this product now. I'm 71 years of age and have used many soil products in my lifetime, so to say I'm HAPPY, says a lot for this product.

I always bought Miracle Gro potting soil because I got good results both with house plants and outside planters. I bought 3 large bags, repotted all houseplants at home and at the office - now have been fighting fungus gnats (look like fruit fly infestation) for 3-4 months. . . it was in the bags of potting soil. From checking online, this is a wide spread problem with MG recently - causes: compost not "finished"; bagged wet; and/or stored wet if bag perforated. Wide spread (multiple states) appears to indicate that this isn't a "one batch" problem. Scott's needs to deal with their quality issues.

In the meantime, would like to see Ace offer other options including some of the newer "soil-less potting mixes".

      I have brought this potting mix for years and brought it again this year. After planting my plants about a week later they were wilting and mold was growing in the pots, so I replaced the plants and did it again. I am done will find different soil to use next year.

      Wilted Flowers guessing fungus in potting mix

      By Unhappygardener

      Comments about MIRACLE GRO Miracle-Gro 16 Qt Potting Mix With Fertilizer (75686300):

      Flowers became wilted day after they were planted in my hanging baskets. Product is full of mulch based material and is not the quality of any miracle gro product. I will go back to using potting soil instead of potting mix. I purchased new flowers and replaced soil with same results.

              Last fall I purchased two 8qt bags of Miracle Gro Moisture control potting mix. I used it to repot plants I wanted to over winter in my home. It was not long before I started seeing fungus gnats indoors. I tried to isolate the plants I thought they may be coming from. I had many plants that were special to me also started showing the gnats. I took a sample of the potting mix, moistened it and covered for some days. When I uncovered this sample, it was full of FUNGUS GNATS!!! Now I am seeing these pests in my newest cuttings with a fragile root system. I tried a layer of fine sand with limited success. Do you have a response? Thank you, Roberta Myers Extension Master Gardener/ St Louis County Duluth, Minn.

                  I have always purchased miracle grow potting soil and have always been happy with it - but, haven't purchased it in a couple of years. This year we purchased about 4-5 bags to start plants for the garden. Holy cow! So many gnats! My home was infested for months. So totally not worth the purchase. Try something else.

                      I recently used this soil to fill a new pot. I planted only zinnia and marigold seeds. However, along with those seedlings , I noticed 3 other types of plants growing. Grass, goose foot (an invasive weed), and something else I can't identify. This was very disappointing. I told the owner of a local garden center about it and she said she had the same problem. Unfortunately, I won't be able to buy Miracle Grow soil again.

                          I bought a bag of Miracle Grow and had it stored in my garage and planned to use it to transplant tomato plants to larger containers tomorrow but it is full of fungus gnats. Commenter from 2009 mentions this and apparently it is still a problem. Last year I used MG to transplant tomatoes and that night I got chills and a fever of 101. I felt better the next day, but realized I had the exact same symptoms a year ago. Both times was the night after I had been transplanting and had soil particles in my nose from breathing it in. I think it was Pontiac Disease (form of Legionnaires) that all potting soil mix in Australia must carry a warning label. The soil brand in common in both incidents was MG. I have mixed feelings, it does seem to make plants grow bigger but the trade offs I am not sure it is worth it, but maybe other brands have the same issues.

                              Ran out of MG Organic Soil, so I mixed what I had with MG Potting mix. Results were impressive, especially with Brussels Sprouts.

                              I always bought Miracle Gro potting soil because I got good results both with house plants and outside planters. I bought 3 large bags, repotted all houseplants at home and at the office - now have been fighting fungus gnats (look like fruit fly infestation) for 3-4 months. . . it was in the bags of potting soil. From checking online, this is a wide spread problem with MG recently - causes: compost not "finished"; bagged wet; and/or stored wet if bag perforated. Wide spread (multiple states) appears to indicate that this isn't a "one batch" problem. Scott's needs to deal with their quality issues.

                              In the meantime, would like to see Ace offer other options including some of the newer "soil-less potting mixes".
