Usually this is my go to potting mix, it just makes everything so simple. This time both bags I ordered had holes in them one of which was poorly mended with some shipping tape. Regardless of this, I figured dirt is dirt and went ahead and took them home, after all the lady that put them in the back of the truck was nice enough, and I didn't feel like making a scene that close to closing time. When I got home, and started re-potting plants I found one bag had about 1/4 filled with straw through it. It wasn't as if someone had stuffed the bag or anything, but rather it was blended in with the soil mix, so not really sure how that happened. Somewhat disappointment in the value, as these are literally $15 bags of dirt.. I'll chalk it up to a fluke, but it definitely makes me question spending that much for a sub par product in the future.

Found large board in bag, thought moisture control material was from coconut husks.
This "soil" is what was recommended for mixing with composted manure for bamboo plants. It is a bit pricey, but I went ahead and bought 3 bags. The first bag I opened has a large board that is about the size of a pallet slat. Really surprised since Miracle-Gro plant food has such a good reputation and I have used it for years. Based on what I found in the bag, do not think this is anything special about this product. Will not be using any more of their "soil".

Used this in my vegetable and fig tree planters. Love how light weight it is and have had really good plant growth in it. So light that I can easily pick up a planter filled with the entire bag. The main reason I selected this product was for ease of transporting fog planters to the garage for winter dormancy. Met and exceeded my expectations!
