Many Reports of Bugs in Bag
The first few complaints that I read about bugs in the soil bags, I thought may be a fluke, but as I read on through the reviews, I found many reports of this same issue. Here is one of many of this type of complaint, “Soil is always filled with gnats, thrips and different types of soil bugs that have been eating the roots of my plants. Since I switched to FoxFarm soil (same price range) I haven’t had a problem.”
A lot of people liked the fact that this soil is organic. You won’t have to worry about chemicals leaching into your plants. Here is one of the customer comments about it being organic, “This is a great organic soil that works perfectly for my potted plants. Definitely will purchase more in the near future.”
The price for this soil is a bit on the high side, but most of the customers who bought it thought it was worth the price. Here is one of the comments on price, “In my area, it’s hard to find potting soil early in the season, so I was glad to find a reasonably priced source for a small amount of potting soil to get a few things started early. It’s a bit expensive compared to the larger bags I normally buy locally, but still a cheap cure for my snow-bound cabin fever! Very nice consistency for seed starting, too.”
