I have planter boxes on my deck should I use this or the planter box soil?

Asked by: suki
Don't use this unless you plan to dig the surface every week to soften it. It gets hard very quickly and doesn't allow water to pass through to the plant roots

I have been using this would with infants and toddlers. Today a parent asked me if this soil had been tested for lead?

Is there lead in this soil. Could this would be contaminated with lead?
Asked by: Mier
This is a naturally composted product and does not contain any actual soil. It contains a combination of peat or coir, pine bark, and perlite. Because of this the lead levels will be extremely low, much less than that of the EPA's minimum for safe drinking water.

Nature's Care 8 Qt. Organic Potting Mix is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 104.

About two years ago I wrote a review on this Miracle-Gro potting mix. Originally, I transplanted large house plants. Then, since there was still alot in the bag, I started my garden seeds in the house. The seedlings grew great and did very well in the garden. Last year I bought a different brand also organic. They did poorly. The seedlings did not make it to the garden. So, I have learned a lesson. Stick with what works.

Transplanted my seedlings and several other perennials I bought from a nursery. All the plants I used this soil on have a yellow mold throughout the soil. I went to inspect the rest of the soil in the bag, ( I only used Half) and it has yellow and white mold throughout the whole bag The bag was very heavy when I bought it, which suggest it was very wet. It might have something to do with it. I will not be using this again. It was also too dense for my garden pots. It literally suffocated my seedlings. Not a good product.

Large pieces of wood in it. It retains no moisture. I had several seed plantings fail and I believe it was due to this product.

I live in zone 9b and this is end of June so, its pretty hot and dry here. Yet this mix is not just "moist" but "wet". I don't know who these people are who have given rave reviews. Very little perlite and hardly any coco coir is in this. Not at all a well-draining mix. No wonder it holds water like crazy. While I wish to fertilize my plants with liquid-water-soluble fertilizer once every 2 weeks, this soil isn't drying out till almost a whole month. It hasn't got a lot of compost in it either. Meaning, my plants are getting only half as much nutrients. If I increase fertilizer strength, they could burn the plants. Very tricky situation. Also, this mix has major potential to cause root rot if its gonna stay "wet" for days on end. Fearing this, I had to repot my plants to a deeper level keeping the soil under the roots no more than 2 inches. Once the roots reach the bottom of my pot, I'll have to repeat the repotting again raising the plants and adding 2 more inches of soil underneath them. Too much work for me and too much stress for the plants. This mix has small percentage of animal manure and blood meal in it. Yet, they haven't done anything about getting rid of pathogens harmful to humans. Like sterilizing the mix or something. Sure, they suggest you wears gloves while working with it. But still, is that enough?? Very regretful purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great potting mix, almost entirely organic material This is a very nice organic potting mix. It's almost entirely organic material, and seems to be comprised of peat and compost. It's light and fluffy when dry, and due to the amount of organic material in it, it will hold water well. It says it has yucca and coir in it (coir is a fiber that comes from coconut shells), but see the photos as it looks like peat. I assume all of these things will look similar when combined. My only concern about this is that I'm not sure it's worth the premium. It's definitely a very nice potting mix, but if you need a lot you may be better off mixing your own. If you just need one bag, get this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A bag full of fleas I bought this thinking of how wonderfuly my little plants on the balcony would grow, but it turned into a nightmare, the mix had so MUCH fleas I thought they were the fruit fly-like ones because they are common .. But they were just ALOT of FLEAS!!! my apartment got lots of fleas biting me my 2 yrs old daughter and my husband for about a month And they are still around!!!!! Me and my daughter especially are so sensitive to those bites and had itchy mosquito-bite-like bumps that would last for days!!! Not pleased at all!!!

This poured out of the bag like a slurry of mud. Dill seeds germinated just fine in it, but after two months of constant care in a container garden (with care not to overwater) the seedlings are only 2 inches tall. Sweet basil plants that I began in peat "starter" pellets only grew to 4 inches height, with leaves the size of nickel coins (at best) after two months in this soil. Never again will I buy this product. Nothing seems to grow in it!
