Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shredded plastic in soil I bought three bags of miracle grow, ALL THREE BAGS had shredded plastic in them! I bought them for a vegtable garden, not something you want to grow your vegtable with. May 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Starting a small area of grass. In North Dakota this has always been a very simple process but not so easy in the Arizona sunshine. We recently purchased a home in a retirement community that has what they call a "desert landscape." This became a problem for our small 16 year old very spoiled dog so....I decided to turn one of our round irrigated areas into a lush green oasis for her private usage. There were many bags of dirt available at the local stores and of course I tried a cheaper, unknown brand first but ater the first 3 months I had no visible grass. Back to buy more soil, this time the Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Garden Soil. After 2 months Sassie had a beautiful lush green area to call her own. An added feature is that some nice little long-eared friends have volunteered to do the mowing for us. Your moisture control is to be congradulated! April 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Unwanted seed problem I have used miracle grow for the past five or so years with excellent results. This year I purchased two large bags from Costco to start my plants with . I am very careful with seed placement. And so when I saw plants sprouting in places that I had not placed seeds and before their germination date I was sure they were weeds. I hope this is not a indication that this company has let its soil sterilizing standards drop . April 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product to amend existing gardens Have used M.G. Garden Soil to amend my present garden. It resulted in better water retention and thus greater vegetable yields. April 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Product. Used to plant new shrubs and they are taking off really well. Couldn't be happier. April 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for Offices and Home Potting For food plants we go organic. But veggies and fruits aren't the only plants at our home. We have flowering shrubs and plants, many of which are in pots or around the sidewalk. And for these we really like this MIRACLE-GRO Moisture Control Garden Soil. The advantage of this soil is the fertilizers and the moisture holding material. In our area we can have very hot days and heat stress can be a problem; and I can't tell you how many times I've lost delicate plants because I forgot a morning watering. Not a problem with this soil. Recommend for offices and for plants you aren't going to eat. It's a high quality, very fluffy mix. December 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely the Best for Window Boxes and Ornamental Pots Honestly, I did not notice this was supposed to be a soil supplement until after I had been using it for my flower pots and window boxes. I supplemented with time release fertilizer and the moisture control component really does seem to work. It has cut down on my watering considerably! July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garden loves it! Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Garden Soil is the best for helping your garden through the hot SoCal Summer days. I use a bit more than most, probably, but it does help. May 13, 2014
