Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 259.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again We tried the moisture control potting mix a couple of years ago in outside containers for geraniums. All of the pots became water-logged and the plants either died or severely stunted with mold on the top. When you pulled up the roots there was very little root development. Yes the pots all had drainage holes. My wife vowed we would never again buy the moisture control product. Last week I went into Sam's Club to buy potting soil and the moisture control product was all that was available so I thought I'd give it another try. I re-potted 20 dormant, bare-root geraniums in new pots with drainage holes to place under grow lights to get an early start on the season. I watered each pot to settle the soil around the roots. Three days later the soil is still fully saturated. If you press it with your fingers water comes out the bottom of the pots as well as pooling on the surface. When you release it the surface water reabsorbs like a saturated sponge. This is entirely too saturated for a geranium and I expect if left there would eventually stunt or kill the plant. The product just won't drain off excess water. I will be buying replacement potting mix and re-potting all of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Potting Mix is by far the best around! I am a total newbie to gardening of any sorts. I purchased a bag of Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Mix to try out because of its great ability to retain moisture; and its ingredients make it so it is almost impossible to overwater. I am having awesome results with my patio tomato plants, that i have in 5 gallon buckets; and am also having great results growing some herbs with this mix. This stuff slowly feeds your plants and vegetables so you do not need to purchase more products to fertilize or feed your plants. I would highly recommend this product to anyone, no matter if you are a Master Gardner or a Newbie like myself. A+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moisture Control Potting Mix My patio looked like a mini version of our big Philadelphia flower show! I know that it was the result of my spring repotting tasks but also because I used the Moisture Control mix. I knew in the spring that there would be long stretches when i would be away from home and was concerned about my potted house plants and even patio tomatoes would dry out. I opted for the moisture control and couldn't be more pleased with the results! I am actually giving away some plants now that I have to move them all back in the house because the size of my showy plants are pushing me out of the sun room!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save your plants from overwatering! We live in Northern Idaho and have had one of the wettest springs on record. My outdoor container plants have been doing great, despite the continuous supply of rain water. From past experience, I believe that the Moisture Control Potting Soil Mix has helped my plants survive the constant rain. My plants are thriving and look beautiful, unlike many of my neighbors' plants. A couple of neighbors have asked what my "secret" is... and the answer was MiracleGro Moisture Control Potting Mix. Thank you Miracle Gro!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from There are large chunks of organic material - twigs and bark and the such. I am potting plants for indoors, and some of the pots are small, so these large chunks had to be removed while I was filling pots. Also, several of the plants grew mold on the surface within a week or two. On the flip side, everything is growing at a healthy pace.
