Holds in the moisture
I hate buying a soil that does not hold in moisture. I ordered a hibiscus plant to put on my patio and purchased a bag of this soil to go with it. (I refused to drive down to the store to buy a whole bag I didn't need.) I was shocked at the the quality of this soil. I honestly thought is was going to be cheap, but it locks in the moisture very well and my plant is thriving!

Great start for our new plants!
We have used a similar product in the past, with great results, so it was natural to order it for the plants we ordered from you. We felt better about planting our new plants in it, like we're taking extra care or them when starting them off.

Great look and feel
The plant starting special mix has a good appearance and is finely broken up. My only concern there is about a gallon size bag and I was expecting larger for planting my 6-7 eastern redbud tree. I planted the tree with the special mix but also purchased Miracle Gro Tree and Shrub topsoil with added nutrients to feed a new tree for up to 9 months. I liked that it contained 2 cubic feet versus a gallon of this product.

I live in an optimum area for azaleas, rhodies, and camellias. However, ancient soil sometimes needs a boost. Hence, I'm adding a muscle-bound planting mix.
