Organic Coconut Coir Concentrated Seed Starting Mix is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact, easy to use, and a good germinating mix. I started using this mix about two seasons ago. I did an experiment using 3 different germinating mixes. Used one from Miracle Grow, another brand of seedling mix, and the seed starting brick. My observations are as follows: the Burpee Mix germinated fastest. The Miracle Grow a day later. The 3rd mix was last and had the lowest amount of seedlings. However, after about a week the Miracle Grow had larger and healthier looking plants. Why am I using the Burpee mix? The physical properties of the Burpee mix was better at holding water. I use a liquid fertilizer weekly and the mix grows the superior seedling. My setup for germinating seeds consists of a heating pad and grow lights.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from should take off the market I should have read the other reviews before I purchased this product. All my plants are stunted and I have wasted precious time trying to grow my vegetables (172 plants) in this junk. I won't bother to ask for refund, there's no way you can compensate for this lost time. Done purchasing anything with Burpee brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This mix is awful I bought this last year and planted the seeds. The grew then stopped and never developed secondary leaves until I replanted them in real soil. Keep in mind that I used a Burpee growing system. My advice is to run not walk from this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst experience in seed starting I have had! I purchases two of these bricks of mix thinking, "What a novel idea--repurposing coconut shells." Unfortunately, I used on of the packages to plant over half of my seeds for my indoor greenhouse. With a few packets of seeds, I planted half in this coconut mix and half in a more typical seed starting medium. Long story short: Not one of my seeds begun in this coconut medium made it to planting outdoors due to low germination rate and hugely stunted growth. The tiny seedlings that grew in this mix were oddly brown in color rather than robust green as were the seeds I began in typical seed starting mix. I wish I had taken photographs side by side of the results from the two different seed starting media so that you could see how badly the seeds grew in the coconut medium. None of them grew enough from March through May to be able to plant outdoors! This experience was so incredibly frustrating. I needed to throw away over 12 plant trays of malformed/stunted plants (9 cells in each tray--108 plants lost!), and had to go out and purchase all of my tomato, pepper, herb, and flower plants. Three months of care of the plants for nothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!!! This stuff is great. I can't lift heavy bags of dirt do to my health. I can now just pick up one these little bricks, add water and watch it grow!!! I've started some seeds in them. So far so good!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too Dry Nothing started and stayed because the coconut dries out too quickly

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never again! For the past 5 years I have always used peat pellets as a starting mix for my tomato seeds. This year I thought I'd give this product a try and my seedlings aren't growing. They sprouted within a week but now after 4 weeks the second leaves are barely growing, some not at all. The only thing thing that has changed in my process is this mix, everything else is the same. I'm very disappointed as I will have to buy tomato plants this year.
