Product Overview

Kellogg Garden Organics All Natural Garden Soil for Flowers and Vegetables, like all Garden Soils, is formulated to be mixed 50/50 with the native soil found in your garden to amend, build and repair tired soil by fortifying your native soil with bat guano, worm castings and kelp meal. It is not formulated as a stand-alone product. Don't be alarmed by its woody texture. Like other Kellogg soils, this is not a peat-based mix. We choose to make a wood-based formulation for three key reasons - 1.) Better Soil Structure to reduce compaction, creating the perfect balance of moisture retention and porosity for good drainage. 2.) Better Soil Environment providing a carbon food source to promote a rich microbial environment in your soil that will result in healthier plants. 3.) Greater Sustainability because wood is a renewable resource, eliminating the need to burn or landfill. Like all of Kellogg's soils and fertilizers, All Natural Garden Soil for Flowers and Vegetables is listed with the Organic Review Materials Institute (OMRI), the leading independent, third party accreditor of the USDA's National Organic Program. Look for the OMRI logo on the front of all Kellogg Garden Organics products for assurance that what you are purchasing is a credible organic product. Kellogg Garden Products started in 1925 and continues today as a family owned and operated manufacturer of quality organic soils and fertilizers. Kellogg uses locally sourced ingredients to help you garden with success.

Cubic Feet?

Is this actually 3 cu. ft., as in 1 cu. yard? Or is it 3 X 1 cu. ft., which is NOT 3 cu. ft.? The dimensions given for the product do not jive with what 3 cu. ft. should actually measure.
Asked by: CubicConfusion
One cubic yard is equal to 27 cubic feet, or 3 x 3 x 3. This bag is equal to 3 cubic feet, or 3 x 1 x 1, or one cubic foot.

How is this different from Kellogg's raised bed soil?

I don't know which to choose for a raised bed vegetable garden
Asked by: RaisedGarden
the "raised bed soil" looks more like the typical dark colored plant-container mix we all familiar with, such as the one that comes in the green and yellow bag and has lots of little white dots in it to hold in moisture content (perlite or vermiculite) picture attached for comparison. Middle top = "Kellog Garden Soil" (Mulch) Lower Right = "Kellog Raised bed Soil" Lower Left = standard potting soil, household-name green & yellow bag brand

Customer Reviews

3 cu. ft. All Natural Garden Soil for Flowers and Vegetables is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 84.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used correctly, great product. Supports family-owned business Let me begin by saying I'm a licensed landscaper. Have been for almost 20 years. I have used various Kellogg's products for over 4 years. I'm not sure why some reviews complain of too much woody material & others do not. I. myself, have rarely had any wood pieces & then very small. As a professional, I can go through hundreds of bags a year. Important Note: I have a guarantee on my work and I do not like to have to replace plants! So, if this product caused a problem, it would be a financial disaster for my business. In these reviews that seem to be at one end of the spectrum or the other, I'm surmising (and I could be wrong) that many aren't using it for how it's intended & what it says right on the bag. It should NOT be used for plants in pots or in a raised bed. They make a separate soil for those: specifically for outdoor potting. Never use an outdoor soil for indoor plants. It should NOT be used alone. It's meant to be mixed with your native soil, as you should do with any soil/compost/amendment you use when planting directly in the ground., as opposed to pots or raised gardens. Depending on your soil, usually 1/3 bagged soil to 2/3 native. I live where there it's mostly clay, so I use it 50/50. This way the roots of the plant get the nutrients & moisture they need, while also getting used to the native soil. Otherwise, when the roots get long enough that they are only in native soil, they might just stop there, keeping the plant from growing to it's full potential and eventually actually making it root bound in the ground! The roots will just circle the planting spot as they grow, avoiding the native soil. I've seen this happen many times. The soil amendment is mostly for enriching a large area that is going to have growth over it all, such as grass. This is great to till into the soil as you prep of a lawn or other groundcover. One more thing to remember is that mulch must be turned by hand a few times a year, especial during & right after monsoon season. There is no mulch, that is natural, that isn't subject to mold/mildew, a white layer on top. You can use a small , rake, or your hands, depending on the area size & what you prefer. It's like tossing salad. Just lightly move/fluff/mix the mulch around, while turning it over a few times so that it gets aired out and separated if clumping. Main thing: during monsoon season, do not let mulch touch the tree to avoid root rot (Giving the tree base about 6" room from the mulch is plenty). Unless the base of the tree is in constant wet conditions, the only time of year we have to be careful is during the monsoons, otherwise I've never had a problem with letting the mulch pile a few inches high at the tree base. I hope these tips helped, whatever product you use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Fully Composted I bought three bags to use to mix with my native soil, after opening up the bags I immediately noticed large bark pieces and a strong odor(not in a good way). I would say it's 50% steer manure and 50% shredded tree products. Since it's not fully composted I decided to use it as a mulch, it does breakdown into compost after 3 months. I'm torn whether I would recommend it, it does make a good mulch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This Is Perfect To Add To Heavy Clay Soil. Not A Mix For Starting Plants or raised flower beds. I think people are confused about where to use this product. I'm useing it to mix with other soil to plant a hill. This is a fine mulch type . Not actual dirt. I recommend mixing some of this to another dirt type to optimize your soil.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst "Soil" EVER I'm absolutely disgusted with this product. I purchased about 45 bags of this Kellogg brand to fill a 10X20 garden area - because I felt it was important to support locally made and a family owned business. This is one of, if not the absolute worst soil I have every purchased in all my years of gardening. It is made up almost entirely of wood chips, some wood pieces are so big, they’re actually considered twigs and had to be removed and tossed in the trash. I started all the plants in pots using Miracle Grow and they were all lush and rich green and really looked great when I transplanted them into the garden when the weather permitted. Unlike every other year, where I used a brand like Miracle Grow in the garden and everything grew great, this year nothing is growing and/or dying within weeks of transplanting. The photos I’ve included are of my actual garden as of today's posting date of 3/13/2016. This year I only used the Kellogg brand of so-called organic soil and I’ve added absolutely ZERO mulch and as you can clearly see by the pictures, their soil is nothing but wood chips and very little actual soil. Within two weeks of transplanting, nearly 75% of the garden has died and the plants that are still alive are barely hanging on and I expect them to be dead within the week. I've never had an issue like this with a garden before and I care for each plant according to the seed manufacturer. That said, not one plant has grown even 1/10th of an inch since the day they were transplanted over a month ago and the plants that are still alive are all yellow and dying. I will now have to dig a majority of this garbage out and replace it with real soil and can only hope of having a garden this year by starting one now. Stay away from this brand; it's the absolutely worst so-called soil ever.

This company should be ashamed of themselves, marketing this product as "garden soil." And, judging from the reviews, the company seems to pass off customers' complaints as if they are the exception, while trying to convince experienced gardeners that soil usually looks like that. As of this date, out of 83 reviews, 48 of them are one star. That's more than half - no way this is a quality product. I would like to give it zero stars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The dirt had a fungus that gave my garden white root rot and killed 80% of my plants . I have almost lost my farm business because of this soil. I pray that this does not happen to anyone else but . It was one of the worst things to ever happen to me . there is no cure for the fungus that it gave my plants .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolutely Horrible! We bought this spring of 2016 (about 5 months ago)like everyone says it is very mulchy, and did sprout a lot of mushrooms. That's is now the least of my cocerns. Today, I going through my planters and they are full of termites! I will be calling the company tomorrow as well as Home Depot.

Our vegetable garden was deteriorating year by year in quantity and quality of the produce we so love to grow ourselves. We had been using Scotts for years and when none was available last time, we bought the Kellogg garden soil. What a difference! For the first time in years we finally had enough not only for ourselves but to also give to friends and family. Amazing what a difference in the plant health and production we obtained from the different product.
