When tending your container garden, get off to a great start with peat-free, organic potting soil.


Garden trend spotter Susan McCoy recommends Organic Mechanics Container Blend, made of 100% organic materials from recycled agricultural waste products (compost, forest products, coconut husk fiber, pure worm castings and perlite).

With this rich potting mix, you'll water less, but your container plants will flower more and look greener. The nutrient-rich blend is also reusable—a money saver for gardeners.

Perfect for all containers, hanging baskets and window boxes, the product is available at Mid-Atlantic, Northeast and Southeast garden centers, as well as some Whole Foods Market stores. Click here for locations.
