I purchased the moisture control potting mix hoping it would work as well as the regular potting mix. I was wrong.

Are you putting more ...see moreof the reviewer's review

I bought multiple bags of this Miracle Grow potting soil to repot large 7+ year old plants and I now have an infestation of fungus gnats. I’m hoping putting sand on top of soil and watering with hydrogen peroxide and water solution will help, but I thought I was buying good soil. NEVER will purchase...see moreof the reviewer's review

GardenFleur 6 months ago
The BEST container soil is light, almost fluffy! It should have either perlite, vermiculite, or rice hulls in it or it will be too heavy. Some folks mix a big bag of this with composted cow manure and a bag of spagnum peat moss. BUT it is fine by itself ESPECIALLY if you are planting flowering ann...see moreof the reviewer's review

I began growing houseplants last spring; by Fall, it was time to repot some of them. I used this product and within a week, noticed tiny winged insects living in the soil and flying around my house.
