Can it be used for fruit plants/seeds?

Asked by: Hvela017
I have used it for tomato plants (technically a fruit). It works well for hanging baskets also. I do not have a degree in horticulture so it is by trial and error that I have "discovered" things. I have also used the Miracle Gro potting mix for vegetables and that seems a little better but the season is young so who can tell yet. This year is the first I used it for seeds and it seems to be doing fine. Prior to this year I bought young plants from the local nursery.

Moisture Control 8 qt. Potting Soil Mix is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 984.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from POOR QUALITY CONTROL I bought 4 2 cubic foot bags of Miracle Gro potting mix, moisture control this year and my plants aren't doing well at all! They are growing very slowly and there is a fungus on the top of the soil. I am an avid gardener and know a lot about plants and soil. I have never had this problem before with this soil. We only have 4 months of growing season and this ruined my flowers for this year. My plants have plenty of sun and the soil gets a crust on the top and I have to constantly loosen it for aereation!! There is more bark mulch than normal for this product!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fungus gnats and dying plants. Miracle Gro used to be my go-to so not sure whats changed, but we bought this and their cactus soil for indoor potted plants and were immediately infested. Our dumb selves thought "oh, maybe it was the bag or chain store stored it improperly" so we bought more at a different store and replanted after peroxide dunking and washing the roots to replant. Bugs returned. Moved them outside. Unfortunately outside is a larger garden setting and even on a tight watering schedule the bugs have slowly been spreading to other planters, so now I guess i get to spend a fortune on pest control to try to limit the population before the whole yard gets infested. My entire herb starter area died as the gnats feed on roots which is especially catastrophic for seedlings, and the loaded down fly strips we've been using to catch the adults are gross.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not What it Used to Be I have used Miracle Grow potting soil for as long as I can remember (I am 63 and an avid gardener. ) I used to have gorgeous annuals but in the last couple of years, it seems everything I plant gets mold and mildew on the leaves. The soil doesn't seem to drain as well as it used to and gets moldy. Time to switch brands.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a good product for potatoes My potatoes were doing splendidly and were due to be mounded with another 6 to 8" of soil. I got the good stuff - Miracle-Gro - so I could look forward to a bumper crop of potatoes this fall. Within three days, my potatoes were dead or dying from vericillium wilt and fungus gnats. Of the ten original plants, six died and four are yellowing and in the process of dying. The only way to recover the bed, apparently, is to dig up all of the affected soil (essentially the upper three inches below the Miracle-Gro) and replace it. Even after that, I will probably never be able to plant potatoes in that plot or the adjacent plots ever again. I am not upset about the wasted money, I am unhappy about the destruction your product did to my garden and the lasting effect it will have on future crops. Needless to say, I will not buy your product again or recommend it to a friend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Returning mine I used this soil so many times and it’s great if you didnt get an infested soil. So many bad reviews about gnats and other pests. I live in an open space loft and have a ton of houseplants so I have to be careful with what soil/plant I bring in. Got a soaking wet soil today and I’m afraid it’s infested. I don’t want to jeopardize my plants and my home and I have a bad feeling about this new bag since the previous one I brought in was bad. Sadly, this is the last time I’m purchasing a potting mix from you guys. I don’t want to ever gamble again. Miracle gro, I don’t trust you anymore

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fungus gnats I bought this a few months ago, repotted my plants, and immediately noticed little gnats starting to fly around that weren’t there before. Plants are now dying because of it. I reopened the soil bag recently and gnats flew out. Buyer beware, this stuff will kill your plants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle grow potting mix is great! As a consumer of miracle gro indoor and outdoor soil, I wanted to address reviews regarding fungus knat problems. I grow houseplants and outdoor perennials and annuals in containers. I only use miracle gro, as my plants stay healthy and thrive during the bloom season. I have noticed the fungus knats on occasion, however I am never concerned about it. They do not harm plants. They are easy to eradicate too. Placing yellow insect sticky strips around the plants will get rid of them, or mixing a small amount of hydrogen peroxide and water, then adding the mixture to the plants soil will kill the larvae too. I no longer have a problem with fungus knats on my indoor plants, and they are very healthy and thriving with miracle gro potting mix.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fungus Gnats, Mushrooms, and Mold Fungas Gnats, Mushrooms, and Mold I re-potted all my plants with this soil. Each plant I re-potted now has a serious infestation of fungus gnats which I can't control. I've tried sprays, insecticides, soapy drenching, sand, potatoes to attract larvae, etc...Still terrible and filling up fly strips daily. Also, the plants with the worst infestation has started to grow mushrooms and mold. I've never had mushrooms grow on indoor houseplants. I water sparingly, once weekly, and the soil doesn't usually seem waterlogged. I even find the insects in my pets water dishes. I have spent far too much time trying to fix a problem that shouldn't have occurred. I wouldn't use this soil again. Unless MiracleGro can come up with a solution.
