Answer: 
Same thing here. I have a wish list of about $1000 to order, then I found out this soil.
Is not at my store, and I check that for shipping they charge me $ 200 for 20 bags.
They lost my order, and they lost the order of my wish list.
I'm going back to Amazon. So long Home Depot

Answer: 
"Square Foot Gardening" mix is a particular mixture, based on a book by that name. It is soil-less, which sounds strange, but it works just great for growing vegetables and does not grow weeds.It contains contains 1/3 compost, 1/3 peat moss and 1/3 vermiculite.

Hi Diana,
The term, "Square Foot Gardens" sounds like a name brand, or description of a product. I'm thinking that if it's a planter box, it probably is available in different sizes.
The Potting Soil in question here is a 1.5 cu. ft. bag. It will fill a 3 sq. ft. container with a 6'' deep layer of soil.

Answer: 
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.

Mel's Mix has its own website and provides an explanation of shipping charges to HD. Don't know if there's a limit to the number of characters I can type, but it says:
" *** News Flash! We find that Home Depot keeps changing the offer. One day it’s $55 maximum shipping, the next day it changes to $150, and then the next day they say it’s no longer available on the internet. So my advice it treat it just like the weather…if you don’t like the weather today, wait until tomorrow and be quick to order it when it’s the $55 shipping price. You can check this on the website at http://www.homedepot.com/p/t/203272590?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&keyword=11760&storeId=10051&N=5yc1v&R=203272590#more_info or call number # 1-800-430-3376 and give them the model # 11760.
"Please note, you cannot order the bags of Mel’s Mix to be delivered to your local Home Depot store, but you can order them to be shipped right to your house. We just have to wait until they post the $55 maximum shipping offer.*** "
Mel's also explains that the $55 shipping price is for 6 bags AND UP. If you order 6 or more, the charge is still $55 -- but you have to check often for the shipping sale price. It's worth it if you need a lot or can find gardening friends to go in on it with you. Read Less

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this soil! I had no clue how to garden but decided this year was the year for me to learn. After researching many options and getting advice from expert gardeners, I went with this soil mix for my veggie bed. Better known as "Mel's Mix" on the blogs I follow, it has worked beautifully. My plants have taken off with very little effort on my part. I used a cheaper option for my pots, and most of them have died off. I highly recommend this! They do need to do something about the totally ridiculous shipping costs though. That makes no sense whatsoever, and it's unfortunate because I would've bought more of the shipping wasn't so high. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best soil ever!! Too bad it's not in Tennessee!!!!! Ready to plant as soon as you put it your raised bed!!! Perfect mix! The only con is I had to have it shipped from Arizona!!! All Home Depot stores should stock it!!! June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mel's Mix This was the only place I could find this soil for my square foot garden. And online was the only way to get it. $8.99/bag, a bargain (not to have to mix it myself). But was $10/bag delivery charge. Considering my back issues, I ordered 10 bags anyway. Please carry this item in your stores for heaven's sake! It's a wonderful product! June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 10, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Potting Soil Mix Excellent solution for people with mobility issues. This is replacing a trip to store and lifting heavy objects. It is of good quality and helped me with tomato and pepper plants. In 50/50 mix with other soil mixes. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I just started square foot gardening and could not find vermiculite at a reasonable price. This is the perfect soil. I just started square foot gardening and could not find vermiculite at a reasonable price. This is the perfect soil. The only problem is that it's pricey and I could not get it delivered to the Home Depot store. I ordered and had it delivered to my home for $55.00. Since I had 26 bags delivered it may have been worth it just to save my back. Although I don't know how the UPS guys felt about it. I do think that, when I do more beds next year, I will try regular gardening soil and see how it does compared to this soil. May 2, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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! May 7, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product This barthalamew soil is a mixture of peat moss, vermiculite and holds moisture. It is everything that your garden needs to grow healthy vegetables. I planned a square yard garden and will find out how well the plants thrive over time. April 12, 2016
