Streptomycin inhibits ________ ?

I have been getting mixed facts about the specificity of streptomycin.  
Most micro textbooks say it is a narrow spectrum gram negative 
inhibitor, while people working in tissue culture say it is effective 
against both gram negatives and gram positives.

At a concentration of 1 mg per mL, is streptomycin inhibitory to G-'s or 
both G-'s and G+'s?  (in a soil slurry)

Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks
