Has anyone tried this mix in an earthbox?

I want to try gardening using the earthbox concept but am having trouble finding the type growing media they recommend. If anyone has tried this mix in an earthbox I would like to hear how it worked for you.
Asked by: michaelblue
Yes, last season, I used this potting mix in my City Pickers (very similar to Earthbox) for tomatoes and peppers and had very good results. As the Kellogg Garden rep mentioned, you'd want to increase water retention by mixing in some coir. (I might be willing to try the Moisture Pro mix they recommend, if I could find it. HD doesn't appear to sell it.) I think I used approximately 1 part coir to 3 parts potting mix. This season, I think I'm going to add some pine fines (fine cut bark mulch) to the mix for greater porosity.

This Kellogg Patio Plus potting mix is excellent for growing roses in pots. It is rougher than most and allows air to flow into the soil for the roots to breath which is very important for roses. I tried Premium moister retaining Miracle Grow potting soil and the Miracle grow organic potting soil and my roses died in both due to root rot because the soil did not allow enough air in and the water did not evaporate. The Miracle Grow potting soil worked fine for about one month then it started to retain too much moister and stunted the growth of my roses and then they eventually died due to root rot even though I did not water them very often. I even bought a moister meter to make sure the soil was moist enough and it showed that the soil was at maximum wetness and stayed that way causing root rot. But the Kellogg Patio Premium Outdoor potting mix was more air filled which allowed the water to dry out which the roses loved. I only had to water the roses once or twice a week according to my moister meter and they grew much faster and larger then the Miracle Grow potting soils. The roses in the Kellogg Patio Premium Outdoor potting mix survived the winter really well too in the pots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and amazing value! I've purchased dozens of bags of Patio Plus over the past few years. The blend is always pretty consistent and I've had great success with flowers and vegetables. The price for a certified organic product is amazing and it has premium organic fertilizers in the mix like worm castings and kelp meal that the other brands don't have. The comparable potting mix at my local independent nursery is easily three times the price. Last year I stood a bag of this on end, poked a few holes in the bottom and planted a tomato plant right in the bag. That plant produced MORE than the plants in my raised beds! I had to add extra Kellogg granular fertilizer through the growing season, but it worked great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did well I'm a first time vegetable gardener. I used the Patio Plus potting soil to grow some Jalapeños, Poblano Peppers, Bell Peppers, and three types of Tomatoes (Sweet 100, Bush & Celebrity), in five gallon buckets. I was pleased with the results. They all did well. Good yield. I plan on using it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subsitute for Fox Ocean Forrest. Not as good but worrks. I have been using Fox Farm Ocean Forest for many years. I go through several pallets a year. After comparing this to Fox, I found that it has less amendments and rich nutrients from the ocean but it makes up for it with Land Based Organics. Thing is, I planted a green house with this next to the Fox and I found that I needed to feed a little sooner with this than the Fox but that is about it. All other aspects of the soil are producing the same as the Fax for half the price. So there it is, This will work fine if you start your feeding schedule sooner. For my situation, it actually works out better for me in many ways. I have converted completely to Patio Plus this year. and I am now ordering several pallets for next years. Got to get it early. Great for all food and medical growing. GROW ORGANIC ONLY

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best soils Patio Plus is a really excellent soil with a heavy bark content. Bark doesn't break down as fast as peat, so your soil lasts a lot longer before needing to be replaced. If you're choosing between this and Miracle Gro, definitely choose Patio Plus. The picture is of my dozens of blackberries and raspberries planted in 15 gallon bags and Patio Plus. They were only baby bareroots just a few months ago, now they're over 6ft tall and packed with berries.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good soil for the price I used this soil for the first time this past summer. It worked well. The only problems I noticed was mushrooms growing in one area of my garden and the soil does not seem to hold water as well as another soil I used. A representative from Kellogg told me that the soil does not have mushrooms. Mushroom spores are in the air and mushrooms can grow anywhere under the right conditions especially in shaded and moist areas. The soil where the mushrooms grew was shaded and therefore almost always wet since it was watered every day. The representative also told me that the Kellogg's soil has the right amount of peat moss and the reason it didn't seem to hold water was me over watering. Not sure about that but I did amend my soil with peat moss which could have contributed to the mushroom problem. Next year, I will reduce my watering and not add peat moss and see what happens. Overall, I believe the soil is good quality and excellent value for the price. I will definitely buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Love This Stuff! I have been buying and using this product since I discovered it a couple of years ago. It is a great value, is useable right from the bag and grew some terrific vegetables and herbs. I have found nothing else this good anywhere close to the same price. The organic goodies in it will feed your plants for several weeks with no added fertilizers.
