On this blog we get mad at lots of things. Sure, anger is fun, but sometimes you’ve got to suck it up and say something nice for a change. So today I thought I’d point out a product that, while it comes from a company that I’ve had issues with in the past, is, itself, a good product. I like Miracle-Gro Moisture Control potting mix. The reason is that it utilizes coconut coir, a waste product from coconuts which holds lots of water and which can still maintain good aeration. That means a reduced amount of peat. I also like that the fertility present in this product (so you don’t need to fertilize right after you plant) is 3-1-2 which is appropriate for most situations. Now, could you mix up you own coir potting mix more cheaply? Sure, if you can find it. You could also fertilize with a renewable organic fertilizer. Still, I think Miracle-Gro got this one right.
