What does everyone or anyone know about earthgro potting soil? Reviews on the www are not good pertaining to seedlings. I have hundreds of seedlings ready for transplanting into 6 packs and 4×4 starters.

Hi Susan,

I've never used it but after reading the reviews, I never will. Eleven pages of "full of weed seeds", "full of garbage including nails, bottom caps....", and "too much manure - my plants are dead".

Take it back to the store and get something with a better reputation.

I talked my boss/ mentor, we've decided to use it as filler to help amend the clay that we have here when planting in ground

It does sound like land-fill material.

My seedlings have always done very well with a mix of plain peat moss or coir and perlite. Completely sterile and pest and disease-free, which is important for tender seedlings with fragile roots and stems.
