Dont Think I'll Buy This Again
I purchased two bags of this product at the start of the summer for my container plants to go outside. Also have a 9ft rubber plant inside. The bag was full of mulch, two of my plants sprouted small yellow mushrooms and with half a bag still in my house, my house is full of gnats. I dont know what theyve done differently to the product but I wont risk it on my plants again.

A lot of trash in every 2.5 bag
I am container gardening in central FL and have had very poor results. Every bag I've had hard clay balls, nails, large sticks, and various other trash. When I dump the Miricle Grow containers the soil comes out in a block. I switched to a local garden center soils and you can see the difference.

What have they done to the formula???
I sooo totally agree with Jceo. I always buy this product for my container veggies at my beach house with great results. This year, I open the bag and thought they had packed it with the wrong product! It just looked like bark mulch. I ended up using it anyway and it is awful! My peppers hate it along with my cukes. Small, not producing and I have weird mushrooms growing in the soil??!! The tomatoes look just OK.. I emailed them about the product telling them that I was disappointed with their product and everything stated above. I told them I had purchased 4 of the large bags. They wrote back and said they would refund my money. I thought well at least they are trying to make up for producing a bad product this year.. that's good ..I'll just have to look forward to my garden next summer without using Miracle Grow. I get in the mail a check for $9.29. What?? that isn't even enough to pay for one of the bags I bought! So I wrote and told them that. They wrote back saying if I send them the cash register receipt and UPC code off the bags they would gladly send me the rest. They were kidding right? I bought 4 bags of soil 3 months ago and they think I have empty bags hanging around my garage???!! Or the receipt for the DIRT??!! Really poor customer service. No more Miracle Grow soil for me...and because of the poor response from them, my lawn won't be seeing any of Scotts weed and feed either....

    This potting mix is the best product in Florida.
    I use Miracle-Gro potting mix when I plant trees, shrubs and vegetables. The plants grows twice the size and my eggplants produce many fruits daily. This is the only product I use so I don't have to worry about overwatering. I have killed so many plants by using Moisture Control Potting Soil.

      I've had great results
      I've been using MG Potting mix for transplanting all my seed starts and greenhouse plants for about a year. I've had great success with all types of vegetables and flowers. Grow some plants to maturity in a greenhouse, also without any problems. Especially happy with potted strawberries in this mix. Expensive, but worth it IMHO.

        This product has little gnats in it!
        Since re-potting 2 plants in our offices with this stuff, little black gnats have been coming out of the planters. I had to use some lawn insect control granules to get rid of them.

        very poor product
        i agree with comment 1 and comment 3. miracle grow had decent quality soil now the quality is literally dirt. i had bought this product a couple of times in the big bag and small 1 pot size bags and the quality was great , i had no complaints other than it didnt hold enough mg for a product that claims 3 months veg fert included. but now like comment one i agree the soil is more land fill ( hole fill aka construction yard dirt) with bits of nails big twigs and wood shavings ,hardly any perlite, vermicule or peat moss.. i dont know what happend but its left me having to search for the high end potting soil like fox farms soil or happy frog ( more expensive.) they use to have great quality soil in the large bags as well as the small , but now only the small bags have decent soil ,while the bigger bags contain fill dirt. although labeled the same the are not... even the organic miracle grow is now land fill dirt and that stuff used to be great... to sum it up miracle grow has no respect for there customers any more selling us garden soil as potting soil and with ample time to fix there mistake they have no excuse.. by the way as for comment #2 , u shouldnt have to add anything to your soil to make it good. if that was the case we wouldnt by the name brand miracle rgow we would buy the bargain brand and add the proper additives needed ( that miracle grow doesnt provide anymore.. all their soil is the same now no matter how its labeled

          Not Good
          I purchased two bags of this at the local Home Depot after carefully evaluating the other options. I have been using Miracle grow products for years but this one is just not up to par. The Miracle Grow potting mix is primarily mulch or shredded wood. I really doubt the "MicroMax nutrients" as well since my plants are doing so poorly. There is little if any perlite, vermiculite or peat moss. I really noticed the poor quality of this product when I inadvertently experimented while potting some annuals. I started with two identical pots. One pot I filled with some other potting soil I had from last year. The other pot I filled with the new Miracle grow mix as I ran out of the original mix. A couple months later and the plants in the other pot are huge and healthly! The ones in the Miracle Grow pot are doing poorly and are 1/3 the size. Both pots are next to each other and are watered the same so it is not due to location. I will attach a picture if I have a chance. Of course I can't return this product now as I have already used both bags.

          My Two Cents - This works well, but you must add Perlite
          Firstly, to the person claiming stunting ...stunting comes primarily a low temperature situation or in rarer cases -a zinc deficiency - OR - even zinc toxicity in plants who become chlorotic. If you mix in the Perlite using a 5 parts MG to 1 part Perlite, and provide a layer of small rocks in the bottom for drainage, this soil works great for all growing needs - from seedling to maturity, but it is not a "set it and forget it" type solution. If you dump a bag into a bucket and just add water, you will have bad plants/verggies. If you treat the plant with care, you will get the results you desire. This soil allows the user to NOT FEED for 21-30 days - after this, you had better get some nutrients into the mix, or your plants will underachieve.

            Great product
            I have been using this product for 3 years in planting containers and have been very satisfied. I have grown a variety of veggies like tomatoes to squash to onions. One thing is after 3-4 months you would be wise at add a little fertilizer for the end of season growth.
