Product Overview

Kellogg Garden Organics Patio Plus Premium Outdoor Potting Mix is the perfect ready-to-use mix for all your outdoor container gardening projects. Specially designed with aged wood fines - it looks different than conventional peat-based potting mixes, but provides benefits much like the forest floor for growing annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs and more. Wood fines help the soil retain more moisture, reducing the need to water frequently. It also attracts beneficial soil microbes which aid in resistance to plant pest and disease, helping plants thrive in their outdoor containers. We added natural fertilizers like bat guano, poultry manure and kelp meal to give plants a good start. But don't forget to add an organic granular fertilizer for extended feeding throughout the growing season.

  • Blended with aged wood fines that help reduce watering
  • Helps plants resist pest and disease
  • With added fertilizers: bat guano, poultry manure and kelp meal
  • Bigger, brighter plants - guaranteed
  • Proven organic - OMRI listed

Can this be used to grow fruit trees in large pots? I'm gonna need 1/2 yard worth for 2 #50 pots.

Can this be used to grow fruit trees in large pots? I'm gonna need 1/2 yard worth for 2 #50 pots.
Asked by: Danny
I've never grown fruit trees in pots, so I don't have first hand experience with this in particular, but I've used this soil in large pots to grow herbs, flowers, and vegetables during the summer and it is the best potting soil I've found. I would not use only this potting soil for your fruit trees, it would not provide enough nutrients, especially if you are planning on growing your fruit trees in pots for an extended period of time. I always add compost/manure, an organic slow-release fertilizer, and perlite for better drainage to the potting soil. Good luck!

Would it be beneficial to add vermiculite?

Asked by: jsr
While it would not hurt, I believe it would be a waste of money. There is enough perlite in the mix so that it drains well. I have started to substitute perlite and vermiculite with rice hulls in my soil mixes.

How do I determine how much to buy? Is this product more cost effective than the 25 qt miracle grow potting soil?
Asked by: KarenB
Kellogg Garden Organics Patio Plus Outdoor Potting Mix is a 1.5 cu ft bag which is equivalent to 38 Qts. Check the beam tag showing the price of the product in the outdoor garden area at your local Home Depot. The beam tag provides not only the price of the product but also the cost per cu ft. You can use that cost to compare with other like-products in different size bags to determine where you get the best value.

Asked by: Lea
I don't know, but I am a 65 year old woman and I can handle the bags. They probably come in around 35-40 pounds.

None are doing well, especially the tomatoes. Almost no growth in over a month. I've never had this problem in many, many years of organic gardening.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT Never had I had an issue with soil like this. I bought this bag because I never put much thought into what brand I get, packaging looked like what I needed. I planted herbs and they are doing well but I don't want to eat them because this soil smells sooooo bad like manure and now my garden is infested with mushrooms and gnats everywhere! I bought miracle grow and plan to rip it all out and try to redo the home for my herbs but I worry it's too late. Spores and gnat eggs, and awful smell. Stay away!!!

It's very moist right out of the bag. We used it around our border trees in the back yard and planted annual & periannual flowers in it too!! It helps the plants keep their moisture and bloom more. Try it you'll love it!!

I am a small farmer's market grower, selling veggie starts, perennials, and herb plants. I have tried several different kinds of potting soil and this is the best I have found. I've been using it for about 5 years now. For 4" potted plants, I find that Patio Plus needs better drainage so I add additional perlite (other bagged potting soil brands are way too heavy and wet and need way too much vermiculite added to make them suitable). For pony packs that dry out quickly, I add some seedling starter mix that has vermiculite for moisture retention. Even though this soil has manure, kelp meal, and such already in it, I also add an organic granular fertilizer to the soil mix to keep my plants looking deep green and at their best (I use Happy Frog Jump Start, works great, wish Home Depot would carry Happy Frog products). Kellogg Patio Plus also works great for my potted flowers on the deck all summer long. And the price is great, especially compared to other organic potting soils. I'm glad I found this product.

Most of the seeds did not germinate, and those that did had stunted growth. I used some in a pot to grow mature plants, and they also did not do well. I recommend staying away from this soil.
