This professional blended premium seed starting soil is ideal for germinating and growing your microgreens.

We have improved this soil! Due to supply issues for some of the ingredients, we were forced to come up with a new mix and we are so glad our hand was forced!

The new blend grows quickly growing microgreens as well as our old blend. The improvement is with longer growing microgreens such as basil, chard, cilantro, etc. In head-to-head trials, basil, chard, and cilantro grew better and were much darker green than our old mix.

The soil contains coco coir, sphagnum peat moss, earthworm castings, perlite, poultry litter, feather meal, bone meal, biochar, potash, diatomaceous earth, gypsum, leonardite, and beneficial microbes.

The soil is light, has a more consistent texture than the older mix. It holds more than its weight in water.

The peat moss replaces the aged forest product but. does not reduce the wetting time.

Soil is sold in 2 sizes. Chose the size in the dropdown menu to see the price. The sizes are:

  • Refill for Home Microgreens trays – these are the new black trays (7.5 X 5 X 1.5 inches).
  • Refill for four Home Microgreen trays.

For reference, a 5-inch by 5-inch tray can be filled with one Home Microgreen refill.

A 10- by 10-inch microgreen tray can be filled with three Home Microgreens refills.

A 10- by 20-inch microgreen tray can be filled with about 5 Home Microgreen refills.

Note: The soil will be shipped in a tightly sealed plastic bag. Do not store the soil in the closed plastic bag for very long. Moisture will build up. Store the soil in a tote or open the bag and store it that way. For more information see this post.

    Hi Sarah, Sorry you had issues. Did the bag come open? If so that is the first. We will make sure they are secured better in the future.

    I just started growing microgreens and this soil is a great way to make it easy. I love just pouring the bag in and that ‘s it! No wondering if there’s the right amount. I bought a larger bag of soil from somewhere else for my first batch before finding this site. It’s impossible for me not to spill any when scooping from the big bag (especially indoors in the winter). I’ll will definitely get this soil again.

    Really nice soil mix. I bought this together with the spray bottle and Basil Seed for my mom for her birthday and she loved how easy it was to get started with just those three things!

    This mix worked so much better than my previous attempts with general potting soil mixes. It’s easier to deal with since it’s much finer. I was having to sort out many large pieces in my previous potting soil mixture.
