As a result you will need to water 50% less often while your plants continue to draw on the extra moisture stored by this compost. That's why Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Compost is especially recommended for planting up patio pots, window boxes, containers and hanging baskets with annual bedding plants and quick growing vegetables such as tomatoes, sweet peppers and herbs. Because of its ability to absorb twice as much moisture this compost is especially recommended for growing plants in a greenhouse or conservatory where drying out of potted plants is a big problem.
