Container Media mixes are designed for landscape applications in both permanent installations and temporary displays, using lightweight or standard weight options. A common application is in large sidewalk or courtyard planters. Our mixes are not designed for commercial production nurseries, however our Container Media blends will support vegetable production and flower and woody ornamental installations contained in regular to large scale planters. Generally light and well-draining, the weight can be adjusted to support plantings of larger and taller sizes.
