    Amazing, stable, and consistent.
    This particular soil increased yield two fold over inferior soil!
    I will always go out of my way for this stuff.

    Would you please inform me whether or not the basil seeds you package under your “Grower’s Gold” name are genetically modified? Thanks.

      Hi Greg,

      Thanks for your question regarding our basil seeds. No, they are not genetically modified. As far as we can determine, no GE basil seeds exist. Let us know if you have any further questions regarding our seeds or other products. Thanks again!

    I accidentally added the indoor mix to my outdoor garden, is this ok? Also is this mix acceptable for certified organic gardening?

    • Grower's Gold

      Hi Lana,

      Grower’s Gold Indoor mix is ok to use outdoors. It is not OMRI-certified however, so therefore would not be considered for certified organic gardening. You would not want to use the Outdoor mix indoors, though.

      Grower’s Gold Indoor and Outdoor Mixes both have controlled release fertilizers (CRF’s) in them therefore would not be allowed for use in growing certified organic crops.

      An organic certifier would not allow any crops grown in these mixes to be sold as organic. Also, remember that Certified organic means it has been reviewed by an organic certifer that uses the USDA National Organic Program standards.

      Cheers and Happy Growing!

    Thank you. I was wondering if these fertilizers are of organic or inorganic orgin. Thanks!

    I didn’t realize that there were CRF’s in the mixes. The packaging on both indoor and outdoor mixes say nothing about any fertilizers. Can you please clarify what they are.

    • Grower's Gold

      Hi Alex,

      Yes, both Indoor and Outdoor Grower’s Gold mixes contain our specially formulated controlled release fertilizer, (CRF), in addition to the natural fertility provided by its organic components. We have a great article on CRFs on the website if you’d like to learn more about them. Let us know if you still have any questions after giving it a read.

      Cheers and Happy Growing!

    Just curious to know if this mix has any bugs or gnats that will cause a bug infestation?

    • Grower's Gold

      Hi Elizabeth,

      Thanks for the question and we feel your concern. Be assured that all of our mixes, including Grower’s Gold, are insect-free at the time of bagging up the products. All of the raw materials are pest-free, including any of our products with compost in them. The compost is left to heat up, which kills any harmful pests that might have been present. Insects such as gnats are usually attracted to decaying matter in plants grown indoors where there is not a lot of air circulation and the soil/mix is allowed to remain moist. They are usually introduced by flying into the area or coming in on clothing and then laying eggs in the soil.

      Hope this helps to reassure you. Cheers and Happy Growing!

    I bought the indoor growing mix and I was wondering if I need to add any fertilizer to it before I start planting the seeds.

      Hi Tatiana,

      There is no need to add fertilizer to the Grower’s Gold to plant your seeds in.

      Cheers and Happy Growing!

    I feel like neither Lana nor Alex’s questions above were addressed, and I am curious about that as well. Lana inquired “I was wondering if these fertilizers are of organic or inorganic origin.”
    and Alex pointed out that “I didn’t realize that there were CRF’s in the mixes. The packaging on both indoor and outdoor mixes say nothing about any fertilizers. Can you please clarify what they are.” I reviewed your article about the CRFs, but it does not specify what the components and origins of the CRFs are. I too purchased the mix thinking that it was free of added chemical fertilizers because it is not listed on the ingredients.

      Hi Michelle, Grower’s Gold is not certified organic. The slow release fertilizer in Grower’s Gold is in a very low amount (less than 2 pounds per cubic yard). At this amount, it is not required to be mentioned on the label. The 15-5-15 formulation consists of chemical nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium fertilizers that should last at least 3 months. Because this fertilizer exists in Grower’s Gold at a very low level, it can be supplemented with crop-appropriate fertilizers of your choice. If you would like to purchase one of our OMRI Listed products approved for organic gardening, we would suggest Black Gold Natural & Organic potting soils. Happy growing!

    Hi.. I was curious what the p.h. of the indoor soil mix is? I know it says balanced, but I’m looking for a specific range

    • Jessie Keith

      November 21, 2013 at 8:00 am

      Hi Nico,
      Growers Gold Indoor Mix is formulated to maintain a pH between 5.5 and 6.5. Normally, the pH will fall between a pH between 5.8 and 6.3, but it can go as low as 5.5 and as high as 6.5, which is considered the best range for all-around growing.
      Happy Growing!

    We see that a question regarding whether or not the basil seeds you shared in your promotion a year or so ago were GMO, and, that the answer to this question is no, the basil seeds are not GMO. Were the tomato seeds you distributed also non-GMO? Thank you!

    • Jessie Keith

      March 16, 2014 at 2:47 pm

      Hi Lorna,

      The tomato seed was non-GMO, but you can be assured all seeds sold on the retail market are non-GMO. Seeds that are genetically engineered are created and used for big agriculture, not consumer or retail markets. GE seed is protected by patents, which would not be enforceable if the seed was sold to the general public. It is popular for seed vendors to state that they only carry non-GMO seeds, but it is a given. It’s simply a marketing tool.

      Happy gardening!

    Can you tell me if the tomato seeds in your promotion were determinate or indeterminate type? I don’t see any information on the package.
    Thank you in advance.

    • Jessie Keith

      May 27, 2014 at 5:32 am

      Hi Gen,

      We believe they were indeterminate, or vining, varieties.

      Happy growing!
