Great soil mix!!

I was looking for a good mix to pot some gardenias with and I’m so glad I got it here! The bag is super cute and convenient and the mix is perfect!! Thanks for this quality mix!! I especially like that it has pine needles and other things that gardenias need to keep soil acid. The soil doesn’t compact after watering and stimulated new growth!! So happy!!
