All Purpose potting mix

12 quart box.  The same mix that we use for nearly all of our plants.  A sterile, soilless, mix that we make ourselves.  Contains 40% sphagnum peat, 50% vermiculite (coarse and extra coarse) and 10% perlite, with wetting agent.  One box contains enough soil to repot approximately: 20 plants in 4" pots, 80 in 2.5"-3" pots, and 100 in 2.25" pots.  We suggest adding 1 part water to 4 parts soil the night before using--this will provide the proper moisture and consistency for easy potting.  Shipped postage-paid (shipping included in price).

Great potting mix!

This is the best potting mix that I found -- my violets love it! will definitely purchase again.

Trying for the first time

This potting mix seems to be just the thing for African violets. I've just received it and have potted several violets in it. Waiting to see how well it works, but if it's good enough for VB, it's good for me! Just wondering if it is recommended for wick watering. Can anyone answer this for me? Thanks to this wonderful company for never disappointing!

Great medium

This potting medium is so light in weight (very important to me as I recently broke right arm and had to lug box up to third floor). I had just recently received my first violet (Happy Harold) from Violet Barn and was so impressed with the care taken in packaging and shipping and the health and beauty of the plant itself, that I want to give it the best care when comes time to repot. This mixture will be very kind to the roots as the plant re-establishes itself! So glad you offer this already mixed to right proportions.

Great Potting Soil

I received my first bag of potting soil a couple of months ago. My violets were so happy to get some fresh soil. It's a wonderful product. My violets have thrived in their new soil. I will definitely be ordering another bag later on this year. A great product and great service, thank you Violet Barn!
