MiracleGro All Purpose Garden Soil:

Our soils are made of composted forest products, and contain only a small amount of actual soil. The composted forest products provide all the nutrients and organic content of soil, without the risk of compaction that can occur with products that contain more soil.

I avoid Miracle Grow products like the plague. They are bad on so many levels. Cheap fertilizer. Crappy soil. It's all marketing and they have monopolized the potting soil market. What a shame.

If you are looking for "garden soil" - check your Lowe's/Home Depot/Menards for local suppliers. They will be as cheap or cheaper than this "garden soil" and at least as good quality if not better. And without the "super fertilizer" gimmick.

If you are looking to start seeds and want a sterile mix - the best widely available mix is Jiffy Organic seed starting mix at about $4.50 a small bag.

If you need potting soil for plants you are better off making your own. The Big Box home improvement stores sell peat moss in 3 cubic foot bales for about $10.50. You can special order large quantities of vermiculite and perlite for about $20 for 2-3 cubic feet. Mix them in various quantities depending on the quality of soil you need. One third of each works well.

This will be much better quality than Miracle Grow as Miracle grow skimps on the expensive vermiculite and perlite and is like 80-90% peat moss.

If you are looking for good quality plant fertilizer skip the Miracle Grow which uses cheap urea. I use "Better Gro" Orchid Plus fertilizer which is urea free and not expensive in the 1 lb. bags and should be widely available.

I was tempted to buy this until I read the reviews from the past 2 years on Home Depot's website. It appears they are using allot of finely chopped mulch as a filler in this product now. People are complaining about the "soil" practically disappearing under any sort of decent rain. If you look at some of the reviews, these are people who have bought the soil in the past and liked the quality but are saying now the newer batches aren't the same.

Although the description does say it's for ground use, has anyone tried using it in pots? Live in an apartment and wanted to try this out and looking for any pot plan successes. Smilie

I think as long as the pots have drainage it should be fine.

Not good for pots. Will compact and choke the roots over time
