Q:I loved this soil the first year and plants did great! Reused this summer and oven baked it to sanitize and added 1 cup compost to every 4 cups of last years soil, which resources on reusing soil recommended. My lettuce plants are not happy this year and keep dying from what appears to be too much water in the soil. Even after being careful and not watering as much, I still lost some. Would the water conserve features of the product be impacted by oven baking it to sterilize or does the water conserve feature only last for a certain amount of time? Thanks!

Answer This Question

A:  Not sure what temperature you baked it at but that could reduce the amount of water the soil holds but shouldn’t really impact it. I’ve had mixed results with this soil and find second and third years get a bit rough with growing

A:  The coir in the product should not be hurt by the sterilization. Baking is not good as organic materials break down and you can get some odd organic acids that can be harmful to plants. All of the organic nutrient charge from last year will be gone.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Yes, you can! I would suggest to add a little plant food mixed to this.

    by|Jun 10, 2021

      A:  It’s not ideal, especially for small seed starting containers but it can work. You will just have to water it more compared to standard peat moss or coconut coir mix

      by|Feb 27, 2021

      A:  Yes you can it has great consistency.

      by|May 3, 2021

      A:  yes

      by|Feb 27, 2021

      A:  Miracle-Gro Natures Care Organic Potting Mix can be used for starting seed, however, the best product for this is our Miracle-Gro Seed Starting Potting Mix.

        A:  I wouldn't recommend it. Aloe plant are succulents, it would be best to get cactus potting mix. Miracle gro sells this also!

                  Great nutrient rich organic soil. I used it for my potted-veggies with great results. The bag can fill about 2.5 12 inch diameter clay pots for me. The soil contains perlite or vermiculite. It holes water as well as the non-organic type soils, in my opinion.

                  Good for out of the Way Pots
                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm using this in pots that don't get watered every day, because they are a distance from the house. Thus far it is working well. I have included a picture of one at the mailbox containing impatiens which are doing nicely.

                    Healthy mix for any plant
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my first time using Nature's Care® Organic & Natural Potting Mix and I must say I'm impressed with the richness it added to the soil. I did a 60/40 mix with Miracle Gro garden soil and ended up with a healthy mix for my indoor plants and outdoor flowers. Holds water tight and so far the plants love it. Easy to use and no bad smell. Can't wait to see the growth in a few weeks.

                      This Product works well
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was given this product to try and find it works well. We had a couple plants in need of some help and so we re-potted them using product and with in a few days we could tell they were looking better. So with in the past week they look great and seems to be thriving. Also it does appear to need less frequent watering also.
