How much to buy?

I have one square foot gardening box, how many bags do I need?
Asked by: Diana
A 4 ft x 4 ft x 6 inch depth square foot garden is 8 cu. ft. 5 bags will get you 7.5 cu. ft. You are looking at approximately 100 dollars.

Since it is a product you carry can this product be ordered at a local store and sent to the local store to avoid the high shipping cost?

The cost per shipping is $10 per bag which is greater than the product.
Asked by: question1
I purchased 6 bags online and had them shipped free to the store. Next best thing to the store carrying it. Hope they continue this option. At times it has not available.

store pickup

can I have an item not sold at my local store shipped from another store and picked up at my local store.
Asked by: everett
I just called my local Home Depot with the same question. I was told they have a special arrangement with the vendor and there is no free shipping to the local Home Depot. In my case, it would cost 450.00 for shipping. I called Square Foot Garden store in Utah, the product is coming from a different company in Arizona and New Mexico.

I am a long-time square foot gardener and this soil mix is the quickest, easiest way to getting started. My local Home Depot used to carry it in the store, but this year they decided not to. However, ordering it online and having it shipped to the store turned out to be the next best thing. I had heard on some SFG sites that HD was only shipping to the home and charging a high amount for shipping, but when I checked they had apparently decided to revisit the ship-to-store option. Hope they bring it back to the store, or at the very least continue to allow the free ship-to-store option. I got 6 bags!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me. Midget plants! I have done SF gardening since I read Mel's book about 4 years ago. Always mixed my own mix as recomended in his book and everything grew wonderfully. This year I made deeper boxes and saw this mix at Home Depot and bought it. Figured I would save myself the work mixing my own. Everything I planted came up but was stunted. Nothing grew more than a couple of inches high, kale, lettuces, swiss chard, arugala, green beans, peppers, tomatoes! I don't know what else it could be except the soil. Everything is the same except the soil. Will not use again. I am mixing my own again from now on.

I am a novice at square foot gardening so I was really happy to see that Home Depot carried a "Mel's Mix" so I would not have to mix it up myself. This potting soil is wonderfully light and fluffy, but drains well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Baffled I am baffled by the good reviews of this product. Maybe I got a bad batch, but I bought 30 bags of this soil last year to fill raised beds. The soil seemed like it had a LOT of wood chips in it, and large ones at that. It did not retain moisture at all, and found myself watering 3 times as much as in previous years. I could barely find any vermiculite in the mix. Despite my careful attention to the garden and 30 years experience, I had absolutely abysmal results. This year I am trying to amend the soil with compost, manure and a peat/vermiculite mix.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy, good quality and not too expensive After doing lots of math and figuring out the logisitics of picking up the appropriate supplies to make Mel's Mix it turned out that the pre bagged mix was only slightly more expensive. Since I don't have a truck that would make bulk pickup easy this worked out great! Wish they'd stock it in store during Spring but oh well. The mix is beautifully dark and rich and while still a little early for a thorough review, we do have some peas popping up already! Let the square foot gardening adventure begin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Results are "atomic" This potting mix contains the 1/3 coarse vermiculite, 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 mixed compost recommended by Mel Bartholomew, in his Square Foot Gardening books. I have bought the components and mixed my own, but this is the same thing and ready made. You need 16 bags to fill a 4'x4' raised SFG but it is an expense you will not have for a long time in the future. All you add every succeding year is a spade full of compost from your compost pile in each section. Why fight poor soil, breaking your back digging and tilling. The SFG method is so much easier and better. Definitely worth the one time start up cost.
