Answer: 
I really don't see why not. It's pure compost, super rich! You might want to cut it at least by a third with some soil for containers or coir at least. Perlite or Vermiculite would be an excellent addition, will help for quick draining but it's not totally necessary. I think it might be too rich to use by itself though. Just throw some peat moss or coir and a couple of good handfuls of perlite in there Read More

No matter how much I dig down and turn the soil over I can't get it to stay wet. Last year I lost every single thing I planted!! Seeds did not germinate because the soil wouldn't let water through. Now this year I am trying to turn it over and soak it good. I am 74 years old and cannot possibly take the soil out of my two raised beds and refill them with something else! Please help!!!

Answer: 
Too much clay... Adding sand might help. You can buy bags of sand at Home Depot. You might want to add a good soil conditioner. Eco Scraps is the best.

Moisture Retaining Garden Soil Mix is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY....THANKS This is a wonderful garden mix. It's high quality and rich. I have used other organic garden soils and this is the best store bought there is. I saw one of the company's reps at a local home depot and she told me about the company and the soil. I said I would try it and bought 4 bags. I AM IMPRESSED!!! Great texture and full of nutrients. I also like the fact that it's produce waste and NO yard waste....that is huge in my book. I will be buying more when I get my raised beds cleaned out by the weekend. Love it!! Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product After putting in three new raised beds, I went to Home Depot looking for some good soil and found this product. Talked to their rep and found it was made here in Oregon, it is organic without animal waste and retains moisture. I bought several bags and my veggies are very happy! Also very happy to report that it does retain water very well from one day to the next and have even skipped a day because of this. I would buy again and did end up purchasing a total of 12 to fill my beds. They are a bit more expensive than other soils with 1.5 cubit feet but I like to support local companies and if their product is good, then I also want people to know that it is worth the price! I am happy with my purchase and love that it is organic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very bad soil for gardening Purchased several bags of this soil with a final price tag close to $200 for raised garden beds. Transplanted our healthy zucchini and pepper plants into the bed. Also started some beans from seed. The beans sprouted and stopped browning at around 6 inches tall. All of the plants grown from seed and transplanted into the soil have turned yellow and stopped growing. The plants in the beds built last year but filled with different soil are thriving but the stuff in the EcoScraps dirt is no good. Very upset and disappointed at spending $200, the time and effort, and ultimately the fact that we need to take out all this dirt and throw it away and replace it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like this stuff! I originally bought this stuff to mix with Kellogg's patio plus soil that I usually use for my containers. As soon as I opened it up, I was impressed! It's dark, rich, smells strongly of pine needles and there was NO, I repeat...NO big sticks, wood pieces, other junk in there that wasn't supposed to be there. It was all finely composted, rich soil, ready to go. NO fungus mold on top, nada! I really gotta say, this stuff is really good. I've used it for my transplants and they're all doing fine, really fine! I'm back to order more. Yes, it would be nicer to get it in larger bags, but then again, I can barely lift the bags it comes in now, but mostly because I'm old and weak and use a medical scooter to move around, so lifting with one hand is not something I can easily do. But it's really great stuff, I would recommend this to ANYONE! And, ordering it online and having it waiting for me right at the customer service desk, is tooo easy! Home depot is the best at this ordering online or ship to store option, better than any other store I've ever ordered online from! You really won't go wrong in buying this stuff, I'm on a very low fixed income and can't afford to make a mistake on soils or things for my garden because I have only a tiny bit of money to work with, but I can't stop raving about this stuff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you can't compost yourself... This is a great alternative. My plants love this soil. It has a rich dark color and no horrible smell of animal fertilizers. Everything I have planted in it is doing very well: no shock issues, quick growth, new flowers.
