# 2 Cubic Feet Potting Soil To Quarts

I always use MG Moisture Control potting soil for my seedlings and love it, but Im not so happy with their marketing tactics.

I checked out the MG prices at Home Depot yesterday and the large bag of potting soil was \$12.99 for 64 quarts. Next I went to BJs warehouse figuring it would be cheaper, and sure enough it was, but noticed that the large bag was now only 55 quarts. Finally I had to go to Wal Mart (groan) and checked it out there as well. The large bag at Wal Mart was marked “2 cubic feet” and didnt mention quarts at all! All of the bags appeared to be the same size and had identical markings, except for the quantity. Clearly MG is offering variable package sizes to their larger customers to foil comparative price shopping by us consumers. Thanks Miracle Grow! From now on I bring a calculator when buying their products.
