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

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.

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 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 5 out of 5 by from Finally someone carries Mel's Mix !!! Thank you !!! I was so excited when I saw that Mel's Mix was available to purchase online - this is the only place I have found that you can order and have it shipped - the quality of the actual product was better then what I have seen in any other pottin soil on the market - all organic and no fertilizers - and lasts for years instead of seasons - that makes this product a great value for the money also! My garden grows beautifully and out produces any other soil or potting medium!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Square Foot Gardening! This is Mel's mix! My husband and I started our first Square Foot Garden this year. After following the advice in the book, we decided to try and find somewhere to buy Mel's Mix as opposed to mixing it ourselves. We found it here on Home Depot's website and got 40 bags shipped to our home. We LOVE this product! It works great, we have had all our seedlings pull through so far. The soil is very rich and we will be ordering more next year! (For those that were not sure, like myself, this is the mix you need from the book)
