Fafard Pro Potting Mix or Organic Potting Mix
I want to grow tomatoes in a container. Over on the Tomato forum, many recommend Pro-Mix BX for this. I can't get Pro-Mix BX locally but I can get 2 Fafard products - their Professional Potting Mix and their Organic Potting Mix. Is either preferable over the other? Are both better than Miracle Gro Potting Mix? These are the ingredients:
Fafard Organic Potting Mix: Contains natural Canadian sphagnum peat moss, aged pine bark, perlite, vermiculite, dolomitic limestone, gypsum, and all natural Perdue organic fertilizer with no synthetic materials such as pesticides, chemical fertilizers, or water conditioners. Meets National Organic Program (NOP) guidelines.
Fafard Professional Potting Mix: This lightweight formula has been pH adjusted and combines Canadian sphagnum peat moss, processed pine bark, vermiculite, and perlite for excellent drainage and great results.
In addition, they both contain a wetting agent, although it is not specified what the wetting agent is.
