I would like to warn people starting seeds about a problem I had last year. I lost more than 100 seedlings due to the seedling starter mix I used. I couldn\'t figure out what the problem was: I had disinfected everything , had good growmats and a new gro-light. Finally, I planted identical seeds in pots with garden soil and the seed starter mix. The gro-mix seeds were small, pale, and stunted. I took the side by side plants back to my local garden center. They refunded my purchase, but that was small compensation for losing all my spring veggies, flowers and herbs. I emailed the company to report it and they said great you got your money back!!!

I\'d like to warn others to prevent this heartbreak. It was Fox Farms Light Warrior and the company never said they would do anything to test or correct the problem.
