Earthgro Potting Soil – Buyer Beware

I picked up a bag of Earthgro Potting Mix thinking that it would be good potting soil. I was going to use the medium to start seeds indoors under grow lights. After opening the bag I was blown away how poor this product was. Inside the bag is a lot of sticks, sand and rocks. The product is more sand than any of the other ingredients.

The product is made by http://www.scotts.com
Here are other reviews from their own website.

The Scotts Company makes the product line of Miracle Gro.

Why would a company that makes a quality product like Miracle Gro make such a horrible “earth friendly product” and charge more for it.

If you go to their website the reviews on Earthgro tells the tale.

The class was free with a donation of a can good.

Also we picked up a new grow light for my garden seed starts and transplants. We purchased the Sunleaves Pioneer 4. The light puts out some major
light on to your transplants that it even give my Carolina Reapers a nice sun tan.
