Will.this potting mix be good for gardenias, roses and Hibiscus ?

Yes-especially in the summer if you keep these plants outside. These plants like to have moist roots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd received a humingbird feeder as a gift, so I purchased petunias, pentas and a gardenia plant,... I'd received a humingbird feeder as a gift, so I purchased petunias, pentas and a gardenia plant, to attract the hummingbirds, as well as bees and butterflies. This Potting mix truly "lightened up" the ground soil with-peat moss that I'd also purchased, to plant the beautiful plants in pots. Our ground is so filled-with-roots that I knew pots would work best. I've seen even after only 4 days that the soil is moist, even without raining in our area. I believe that it's going to be an essential part of the process of preserving the plants and enjoying the essential feeders, for many months. Thank you, Miracle Gro!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gant infest soil Bought this from chain hardware store. To transplant several indoor plants. I started getting little flies. Aftry to dry out the soil, uesed insect spray and even soap bubbles. I went out & purchased 2 more bags repanted the plants out doors after watering left outside to dry a little brought them inside and have watered in over a week, just added a little water the gnats are back. I have always use Miracle Gro for all my indoor planter before with no problems, however the last purchased (4 bags 8 qt size) I have GNATS problem. Now my house and planters are full of Gnats.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from GNATS !!! Repotted 2 indoor plants with this mix and now I have gnats swarming from the potting mix. What a waste of time and money. Now I have to either treat them with a pesticide or repot them in a DIFFERENT mix. Don’t know if it matters but I live in New Jersey so maybe it’s a local manufacturing plant problem. The balance of the mix is going outdoors in the flower beds. First time I had any problem with a Miracle Grow item. Luckily the were out in the sun room so no bugs in the house.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flying gnat's and white larvae under leaves I used miracle grow soil to transplant some viola's that I had started from seeds ,when I started the seeds I used miracle grow seed starting mix and I had a bunch of spider mites, the soil was just crawling with tons of small spiders. When I transplanted them to bigger pots I got miracle grow potting soil and a bag of African violets mix and that was full of mold when I opened the bag ,I took that back and used the potting soil ,so now I have hundreds of small gnat's flying around and thousands of small white spots under the leaves.they are larvae and small hatched ones. After reading up on this I find out that all of the white spots under the leaves are feeding on the leaves,they suck the fluid out of the plant and kill it!! So after all of that hard work all of the plants are dead and I'm still dealing with all of these bugs!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good for houseplants I had high hopes for this soil and am very disappointed. Used in some of my indoor plants that needed to be repotted. The soil does not allow for adequate drying between watering and holds onto too much moisture. I got a terrible infestation of fungus gnats in all the pots and had to repot again in different soil. I'm very plant savvy and have never had this problem before. Wouldn't recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Infested with bugs I bought a bag of this recently for repotting of an indoor plant, and one week later it is infested with small black bugs (fungus gnats). I did not have this problem prior to adding this soil, and upon checking remaining soil in the bag, it is teeming with these bugs. Very frustrating, I hope it doesn't kill the plant. I will be returning the bag for a refund.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 8000000046 I would not recommend this product or any thing made by this company . I have used this potting soil before and when putting the plant inside it develops Nat bugs hatched inside the soil, The only reason that I picked some up is that Home Depot stopped caring Super Soil. And I was going to use this potting soil in pots outside. You could use this outside.
