Hello, For many years now I have purchased and used Miracle-Gro products with complete assurance of quality. Other soil sold for outside plants proved to be weak and not perform the way I anticipated. Lately, I bought potting soil with moisture retention. It was wonderful for my deck boxes and pots. The flowers just thrived and made me feel like a professional gardener. The blooms were gorgeous and the vines full and very healthy. Here in Indianapolis the sun can shine and dry out planter boxes quickly. With the moisture retention of the soil I wasn't watering as much as I would have with inferior soil. Using your plant food in my watering can actually made my bedding plants double in size. I was so pleased. Keep up your good work making this world a beautiful sight to see. Thank you for developing products that are easy to use, affordable, and have success right away. Sincerely, Karen and Norm Robinson (This review was submitted as a sweepstakes entry or is a review of free product.)

WAY TO MANY GNAT EGGS!!!!!!!!

I just bought a bag of your miracle grow potting mix to reppot my very young vegetable plants in. After buying i looked up the reviews and I read all these horrid review on your product about the gnats and your statement of that a few eggs are laid through the air holes during transfer and storage. So I decided to do a test. I took 6 samples from this bag I just opened (top bottom 4 sides and middle) and I brought out my old microscope to see what I could find and what I saw scared me. There are so many gnat eggs in here. There's actual clumps of them, i couldnt keep track when counting those in clumps. But i counted single ones i saw and I can get over 25 of them in the small view of my microscope, in a small very scattered and spread sample and that's what I counted before loosing track. All 6 samples were the same result. Meaning that the eggs are like this throughout the whole bag. There's just way to many plain eggs to have been laid there through the holes. More like they were in there since possessing. I would highly recommend your people look into this and find a way to fix it. I'm very unhappy with this. But I shall continue with the planting and I hope that this mix makes my plants 2 times as big like you say. I will use sand as you suggest but I surely hope you fix this or I'm never buying another thing from you and I'll make sure I spread that cause that many eggs in a bag is ridiculous and no one deserves to have gnats all over their house and killing their plants

Miricle grow soil is the only ones i ever use, after finding that other sor companies add, bark sticks and rocks. The reason i use the moisture control soil is that i have dozens of large pots filled with trees, dogwood, corkscrew willow, maple, bamboo and cannas, snapdragons, rose, delphinium, Lily of the nile. The pots sit out on my driveway and the heat gets hot during summer, well until i started using the moisture control soil i was losing a few plants a year due to drought. I try and water everyday but it wasn't enough. With the moisture control I no longer have to worry about the plants dying or the soil hard panning. Sometimes i mix the moisture control with other miracle grow soil and that works fine too. If you are doing pots and containers you just have to use moisture control (This review was submitted as a sweepstakes entry or is a review of free product.)

How I use it and why?

Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Soil was first recommended to me by an Ag teacher and later by a landscape gardener. I've used it in various types and sizes of containers for both fruits and vegetables with excellent results. For the last couple of years I've been growing with the Eco Growing system and after trying a couple of other brands of recommended soil the Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Soil has ended up being the only one I'll use in the Eco pots. I add a one to two inch layer of Vermiculite to the bottom of the pot and 20% more Perlite to the soil mix as recommended by Eco. The vented self watering pots prevent overwatering and the Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Soil prevents my plants drying out too fast in the summer heat in my little greenhouse. This combination has produced bigger, tastier fruits and vegetables faster than anything else I've used. The included fertilizer Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Soil has produced steady growth and beautiful results without chemical burn.

I've used Miracle-Gro potting mix for many years and noticed the past couple years that the product was changing. The last bag I bought a couple weeks ago was heavy, black, wet with little to no perlite and few fertilizer pellets in it. I've had the bag open for weeks and it is still wet. It is to heavy to use in potted plant containers. It is not light and fluffy like they use to bag. I wouldn't recommend it for indoor plants as it makes them want to die, maybe from the mix being to heavy and not allowing oxygen to the roots. Peat should be brown not black like what is in the packages now. It is sour smelling when you first open the package like something rotting. Even if it is composted peat, it shouldn't smell like it does in the package if it is being tended to properly. After reading other post, it could explain my sudden invasion of fungus gnats. If you buy this, definitely put it in the oven and kill the gnats first before using or storing.

Comment from Lee Ann - 4/7/2014

We're sorry to hear that you have been disappointed in the Miracle Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix. We appreciate your taking the time to share your experience and your comments will be forwarded to our quality control and marketing teams for review. We do not recommend putting the soil in the oven. Heating the soil in the oven will reduce the benefits of the soil by killing off the beneficial microbes and bacteria that plants thrive on. If you need to dry it out, place it on some newspaper and lay it in the sun. To control fungus gnats use a 1/2 inch of sand around the top of each pot. The gnats can not crawl through the sand, which stops the breeding cycle. Adult gnats can be caught using a saucer of water and a couple of drops of dish soap. We want you to be satisfied with our products. Which is why we offer our product guarantee. Please contact us using the following link for additional assistance. http://tinyurl.com/c3s4e28
