Why is this not recommended for gardens, but only for potted plants? What is the chemical analysis of this product?

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 214 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gnat infested I used this mix for some plants in our office and was so confused when we started getting gnats all over the office. I tried sprays and traps for weeks before using a layer of food-grade diatomaceous earth all over the surface of the soil. That finally killed them. I went to open a sealed bag of this mix to cover the top of the plants again, and 100s of the gnats flew out of the newly opened bag. I quickly shut it and threw it in the garbage. I spend over $150 on products trying to kill and trap these gnats, so this made me livid. I also couldn't water my trees while the gnats were there (because they thrive in damp soil) and my six 5 foot tall benjamina ficus died as a result. All in all, I'm out over $400 because of this potting mix. Do yourself a favor and buy something else! December 15, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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 April 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dlsappointed in a Miracle Gro Product Just read reviews that had same problems with mix that I did. Gnat infested, petunias all died except one. Just tried a second batch of petunias and same thing,,,,all are gone, Same first batch of petunias in a pot not with mix are thriving. Will have to get mix in garbage bag as would not want to infest my yard with whatever is in that mix October 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Moisture Control potting soil mix 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.) January 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cure for potting soil gnats in your house!!! Some moisture holding potting soils hold more than just moisture. Insects find this a very nice and if stored in the sun warm place to incubate their eggs. Your house or porch becomes the nursery for the youngins. your plants, or food are the staple. As long as there is moister; the whole thing can be remedied by spraying the soil with insecticidal soap. The pyrethrens in the soap kill the gnats that resides in the soil; therefore curing the gnats-y issue. Plus until you water again the soap is still working on future hatchlings. Insect soap available at the HOME DEPOT. Good Luck! July 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It really works Been using this product for 4 or 5 years now. I get flowers from a local nursery and this really helps to keep them growing and blooming all season. I had tried other bargain product from the local big box store and none performed as well. (This review was submitted as a sweepstakes entry or is a review of free product.) January 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by this product has gnats all over my house Two months, I replanted my house plant using this product , I now have little gnats flying all around my house. I never had any problem with gnats until I used this product and they are all over my plant and my house. I am now going to have to buy different potting soil & replant again & hope it doesn't die November 5, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed I went out of my way to buy the very best - I mean what could go wrong when you buy anything from Miracle Grow - but I set up two new large pots, each one using a complete bag of M-G Moisture Control potting mix to grow some tomatoes and both plants now have terrible Blossom End Rot. As this is caused by a lack of calcium I would have thought that the M-G product would have been better balanced to include calcium. Very disappointed. June 26, 2015
