Anyone using ProMix?

Has anyone used ProMix soil-less potting mix? I just bought a bag for a special project and it says that it's great for bulbs. Wondered if anyone had experience (good or bad) with it.

THOUGHTS??

I know a lot of people that use ProMix as PART of their mixture for bulbs! I like my mix to be VERY fast draining as bulbs are prone to rot! The mix I like is
Promix 1 part
Fir Bark/Horticultural Charcoal 1 Part
and Chicken Grit (granite) 1 Part

OR I use Promix,Fir Bark and Silica Sand!

I make my own mix as well, and thought it might need amending. Thanks for the heads up. I add sand, granite, and charcoal...so great minds think alike!

Don't use chicken scratch you buy locally, here it's oyster shells.
