Rated 2 out of 5 by from Filled with wood chips I was really disappointed that the seed starting mix has so many big chunks of wood in it. That defeats the purpose of a seed starting soil.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Infested With Ants, Lost My Seedlings DO NOT BUY THIS UNLESS YOU PLAN ON POURING BOILING WATER OVER IT, OR BAKING YOUR SOIL FIRST. I used this, indoors with our grow light to start all our seedlings this year. Started noticing a problem with small black ants not long after. Finally discovered the source was in one of my seedling pots. There was an ENTIRE colony of ants living in my 5” pot that I filled with this soil. We had to toss all our seedlings and we’re now 4-5 weeks behind in our growing season because this soil was full of ant larva/eggs. It all went in the compost, but I regret not saving t and sending it back as proof. I will be filing an official complaint with Miracle Gro and hope they take my complaint seriously

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too many small sticks and rocks I've had the same experience that I see somebody else wrote on here. This contains too many pieces of sticks and small rocks for a good seed starter. I'll stick with Jiffy Mix. This issue was even worse for me with MiracleGro Humus & Manure which I'll rate on its own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seedlings popping up This is my first time using seed starting mix. Usually I use regular Miracle Gro potting mix to start my Marigold and Celosia seeds which had about 90% germination. But not much success with other variety of seeds. This year I’m using Miracle Gro Seed Starting Mix and all varieties of my seeds germinated close to 90%. Here I have so far, Silver Sage, Mother of Thyme, Bachelor’s Button, and Cosmos. The bag is lightweight enough for a child to carry. This also means the mix is very dry. Before sowing, I pour the mix into a bowl, and mixed thoroughly with water until evenly moist. This guarantees there are no dry pockets which will be hard to fix once you sow your seeds. But once they’re moist, water passes through easily. I only watered once in the two weeks that have gone by. I did find a bit of white mold growing on the mix of my Bachelor’s Buttons. It was caused by the tray being covered. Once I removed the cover, the mold stopped growing. I did not have mold on my other seedlings which were not covered. The bag did have a moldy smell even when not opened. I didn’t see any gnats. Yes there were sticks I had to pick out so there is some work. I’m looking forward to sowing my zinnias and marigolds soon.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not like it used to be I have used Miracle Grow Seed Starting Mix for many years. This year the mix seems to have less vermicullite/perlite than before and does not wet well. Some bags are worse than others. This leads to poor results with my seedlings.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seed Starter Mix I bought a couple of bags of seed-starter mix. If I would have wanted mulch I would have bought that instead. I shouldn't have to pick sticks and mulch out of my soil. Very disappointing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst soil ever I bought this soil the other day and used it for several seed starts. What a huge angry waste of money. I wasted seeds I can not get back on this crap. It will not hold a drop of water. Seeds need water to germinate and this crap won't hold a drop. Everything was ruined. Throwing it all out. Terrible. I watered soil over and over and not a drop absorbed my seeds are all messed up. Thanks miracle grow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's dirt and things grow in it I came here to read the product label and saw all the negative reviews. After reading some, I think people are blaming the soil for problems that aren't related to it. I just wanted to offset some of those reviews because I have been having a fine experience growing things in this dirt.
