Burpee Super Growing Refill Pellet 22.5 mm is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Every Seed Germinates I have been using these pellets for years. The cons with these is they do not expand easily. You have to work with them. They are harder to use than regular growing mix. BUT I continue to use them every year because my germination rate is 100%. I can't get that rate with other growing mediums.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faster germination I thought I would try these when my local store didn't have what I was looking for. I purchased the system that self-waters. I discovered that it's best to expand the pellets in the container, breaking them apart with your fingers as they expand, and using a squirt bottle to make it easier to add water. It definitely took more effort than just putting peat in a pot, BUT, almost every seed I planted in this medium sprouted unlike the ones I planted in peat pots, where about half sprouted. They also sprouted sooner and are healthier. I won't be using peat anymore.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as described Had trouble at first cause I made a mistake could of easily blamed burpee which seems the case. I just simply added more water in small amounts and helped it strecth out. . Dont see how others couldn't get them to expand. Took very little effort to force them to expand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Totally Useless I ordered a bag of 72 of the Burpee Super Growing Refill pellets on 5/2/2018 and tried using them today (5/24). The problem is they totally disintegrate and there is no way that I would be able to get the seedlings out of the cells of an ultimate growing system! Every single one of the 32 pellets I put into the growing system today did expand almost double in size, right before totally disintegrating! There is no way to get the seedlings out of the cell after they germinate to be able to get them into the ground. If I could give this less than 1 star, I would do that.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I should have read the reviews! The so-called super growing pellets are far from super. At most they doubled in size, not seven times like advertised. I added warm water slowly and waited for the magic. These are a joke. I will not buy these again. I always thought Burpee was a reputable business!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great for me. Pellets expanded within seconds after adding warm water. Planted the flower seeds. Within 3-4 days I had a bunch of baby plants sticking their little heads out of the medium. I’m on this site now actually looking to see if I can just get the pellets for next year as I plan to recycle the containers and use those next spring.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn’t expand I waited and watered and the pellets did not expand. Now off to the store to buy soil, very disappointing
