Jungle Growth Grower's Mix or Flower and Vegetable Mix

Posted by yumtomatoes 10a (My Page) on

I am growing container tomatoes.

The flower and vegetable mix is cheaper than the Grower's Mix. Both felt heavier than the Fafard but the bags were outside and were wet, so the heaviness could have been due to the water.

Anyone have any experience with this brand? Is the flower and vegetable mix OK to use or is the Grower's mix better?

You talkling about the Rainforrest mix I use the growers mix and like it. I have 12 pots going right now with that stuff in there. The soild dose hold the moisture rather well and when it gets a little dry it come right back to life and I oxgenate my water as well.

You want the Flower & Vegetable Mix. It is 55-65% pine fines. The Growers Mix is 55-65% sphagnum. The growers mix holds too much water for tomatoes during Florida rainy season.
