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. I repotted my plants a second time using the same product, and now I have more gnats than ever. I DON...see moreof the reviewer's review

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 harbori...see moreof the reviewer's review

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 re...see moreof the reviewer's review

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 so...see moreof the reviewer's review
