Rated 1 out of 5 by from How terrible is this soil? Terrible!!! I trustingly bought a couple bags of MG potting mix and holy moly after two weeks I had hundreds of fungus gnats I had to toss a huge Peace Lily and do battle for 3 months to get rid of them NO MORE of this companies products EVER!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Full of gnats I bought a huge bag of Miracle Gro potting soil to repot all my house plants and had such a large infestation of gnats. I used sticky bug catchers in pots and had hundreds of gnats stuck to them. I used mosquito pellets to kill adults and used small pebbles to prevent them from laying eggs. The company wants you to put your soil out in sun to kill them. Who has time and space for that when you can buy another brand and not have issues. Will not be purchasing this product again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Potting Soil Miracle Gro is my go-to potting soil and has never disappointed me. My plants always grow well. I ordered two bags as they were easier to handle. I use this for everything. Delivery is quick and reliable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My INDOOR plants developed a huge weed problem I bought this last year and I use it for putting my indoor plants. It has lived in doors since the moment I bought it and opened it up. All of my plans have been developing weeds made out of grass and sunflower seeds so I dumped the bag out in the yard and a big piece of animal bone fell out. Clearly cut with a saw. It was the joint end. This bag was clearly badly contaminated and I don't appreciate having to weed my indoor plants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Full of fungus gnats - would not recommend I have been battling fungus gnats for months in my store. I couldn’t figure out where they were coming from until I opened my half used bag of Miracle Gro and was swarmed by them. I came here to check out the reviews and it seems this has been on ongoing issue for years. Shame that MG has not done anything to remedy this. I have spent a ton of money on pest control and now have to spend more on new soil to try to get this under control. It’s sad because I thought MG was a good brand but I will never purchase MG products again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Bugs the worse ever I have always bought 6 months of potting mix of Miracle Grow and this has been the worse ever. They have hundreds of bugs in the one I used indoors for my plants. and some of my plants are not doing well and not sure if it is due to the invasion of bugs

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor product I have always loved your potting soil. Not anymore! All it is now is fertilized peat moss. I bought 5 large bags this season for my patio pots and All I can say is I will not be buying your product again until the peat moss is replaced with the original product. I realize that costs have changed but so has the quality. So disappointed in this new product!! What a waste

Rated 2 out of 5 by from So many flies! It was time to repot my houseplants. When I opened the new bag of miracle grow potting soil I noticed a few flies coming up out of the soil. I figured it was a minor issue. Well, now I have a whole colony of fungus gnats living I’m my houseplants. I am using sticky tapes to catch the adults-and there are so many! I keep changing the tapes, but the flies just keep coming. I’ve tried other solutions but the flies just keep coming. So frustrating!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fungus Gnats Be very careful - I recently purchased this mix to repot 9 of my household plants and within a week my plants and home were over ridden with fungus gnats. All home remedy and over the counter insecticides did not work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gnat Infested Potting Soil I started my indoor planting over 6 months ago and everything was awesome until I thought I would splurge and buy what I thought was supposed to be THE BEST potting soil. I have used their products in the past which is why I bought the soil May 2022; within 2 weeks I had gnats flying around my plants, face constantly and for weeks reading “how-to’s” trying to get rid of these disgusting pests infestation. Miracle Grow should be accountable selling products knowingly infested. I have serious doubt a standard check of the lots before packaging and delivery would not discover infestations. Especially from what I’m reading online now. I suggest all consumers open and examine each bag contents before ruining your garden. I wish someone had told me. I cannot have anyone in my HOME because of this mess. Why should I now have to go out and purchase new soil to repot because MIRACLE grow *caused this problem?* It’s infested in their soil! Their product infested my home. Unbelievable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed We have used Miracle Grow Potting soil for years. I loved it. This year I purchased 2 60.5 litre bags and immediately noticed a difference. Instead of being light and loamy and moisture absorbing this soil was dry and almost the consistency of peat moss. Very poor water absorption. I used one of the bags an a bit of the second then decided to just use last years soil already in the pots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic potting soil I have been in avid Gardener since about 1992 when I was 12 years old there is not anything that I cannot grow Miracle-Gro potting soul is the only potting soul that I use in my flower pots and did my vegetable and flower beds I love how it has all of fertilizer your plant needs and literally within a week of planting certain seeds you can see them sprouting up it's inexpensive works great can be used in any type of flower bed or flower pot and can be found almost anywhere as you see it's worked wonders in quite a few beds

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good potting mix for ornamentals and vegetables I have used Miracle Gro Potting Mix for years for both vegetables and ornamentals. The plants grow well and quickly. Make sure to buy your potting soil from a merchant who stores it in a dry place. I think some of the problems people have is because the merchant stores the bags where rain can saturate the soil causing anaerobic bacterial and fungal growth and insects move into the bags. Miracle Gro Potting Mix has good moisture retention without tending to get soggy. Buy from a merchant who stores it properly and you will be happy with the results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product has ruined my summer potting season When I opened the bag, a flurry of gnats emerged and have never gone away. Plus the "soil" is more bark and sticks than soil, and it smells terrible when wet. I don't know what is going on with MiracleGro, but this is too much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gnat Infestation I am so disappointed with the quality of Miracle Grow right now. After successfully propagating some of my houseplants, I bought my usual MG Potting Mix to plant them in. Within a week, gnats were ALL OVER my houseplants. I was literally changing the sticky traps every 2-3 days because of all the gnats on it. I even bought a NEW bag, and changed out all of the planters. Again, gnats EVERYWHERE. GROSS. I don't know what happened to the quality as I have never had this issue in the past with MG brand. I am so disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from White fungis kattacked my seeds Every year I plant the seeds from my amaryllis plants and have successfully sprouted hundreds of wonderful plants. Some of which I sell, some I give away and some I plant add to my garden. I have relied on Miracle Grow potting mix many of those years to start my seeds. Last year to my disappointment my success was close to 0%. My seeds Amarillis seeds are large flat disks about the size of a penny and are planted standing up in the soil about half in the dirt and the rest standing straight up out of the soil. This made it unquestionably easy to see the cause of there demise. As the first fine hair like root emerged a white fungus attacked and destroyed the sprout. I even tried to spray the soil with a diluted fungicide to no avail. I hoped I had just got my hands on bags which had been exposed to something irregular however, I cautiously planted only one container in fresh miracle grow this year with the same resulting fungus destroying the entire container again this year. I am very disappointed in the quality of what was once soil I could rely on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Has become comparable to the off brands I’ve been planting for many years and Miracle Grow Potting Mix has always been my go to. This year it’s garbage! I’d say the soil content, wood chips, and perlite are each a third with a sprinkle of fertilizer beads. I literally had to search for them! In addition to the gouged 2022 price, the quality leaves me planning little to no containers next year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy customer!!!!! I've been using Miracle Gro for many years and the plants do grow healthier. First time I ordered online your website is easy to use. My shipment I ordered came within the estimated time. I plan on ordering again in the near future!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Creosote Odor in Potting Mix I have bought this product consistently over the last ten years and the quality has consistently gone downhill with this year being the worst. I bought one large bag and besides having much less perlite there is an odor that smells the same as creosote. This is most disconcerting as creosote is cancer-causing. I used to paint horse fencing with creosote and it smells the same?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 2 bags of Garbage Normally a good product but I question current quality. Recently potted 5 containers with 2 bags of potting mix. However both bags are hydrophobic. It will not take water at all. Just puddles up on the surface. Total waste of time as I'll have to buy mix from a local nursery and re-pot. Will probably switch to that option in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A plague of gnats I repotted my houseplants with miracle-gro potting mix and now my apartment is full of gnats. Tiny little black flies coming out of the soil. It's like a scene from the mummy returns and this potting mix has truly brought evil into my home. Never again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So dry! I purchased 2 large bags this week. The bags I purchased were dry and dusty. My potted flowers popped out of the containers because water just went under the mix pushing it and the set plants out of the container. I had to then put the potting mix in a large bucket add water and stir and wait for it to absorb it took hours. You can't tear open the bag at the store to see if it's dry.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gnats and fungus I bought this a couple days ago to plant my indoor plants and after a couple days the plants were full of gnats and fungus now I’m dealing with a house full of gnats andas to buy different soil to repot my plants and spending money on buying chemicals to kill the gnats. I should of read the reviews first I seen I’m not the only one that is dealing with the same issue. Do not buy!!!!!!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same formulation as in past I purchased several bags of MG potting mix for container vegetable gardening. I have used this product in the past over about a ten year period. The materials in the mix just purchased are not the quality ingredients I have used in the past. In the past the mix was more uniform with smaller bark pieces and uniform shredded peat with enough perlite to actually promote good drainage it was easily used to fill cell packs. Most importantly it drained well and did not compact. The current mix is garbage compared to what it used to be. The stuff I got h to his year has large chunks of wood and sticks large rocks huge chunks of hard organic matter globs peat like material the size of golf balls. The mix does not drain well and packs down tightly. There is not enough perlite to maintain a good air to water ratio when wet. The mix used to be very similar to a traditional Cornell Peat lite mix but no longer. It does not perform well doesn’t drain well and overpriced for the quality of product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Soil doesn’t retain water I bought a 50 pound bag and planted my flowers in pots. I wet the soil prior to putting plants in and held the hose there for a while. Th e soil would not retain the water. The very next day the soil felt dry. It was a cool day.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What has happened to this product? I have been using Miracle Gro for over years, Bought 50 qt bags. Nothing but wood and mulch. Can even pot 5 in pots. wood chucks to long. I am very disappointed in this products. Returning to the home center. ASAP

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Grass in potting soil mix I am 77 and have mircle grow for as long as I can remember. However this year the potting soil mix has a lot and I do mean a lot of grass coming up through my flowers. No other products were used planted only in the miracle grow. Disappointed is not the word sad is probably better that I have used your product for years and never had this problem. Please check your quality control department.
