Product Overview

Kellogg Garden Organics Raised Bed and Potting Mix is specially formulated for raised beds and container gardening. It helps to promote healthy growth for all plants including fruits, vegetables, and herbs that are specifically grown in raised beds or container gardens. Raised Bed and Potting Mix comes ready to use right from the bag - no mixing is required. It has added kelp meal, poultry manure, and bat guano, providing your plants with premium nutrients with added coir for greater water retention. Don’t be alarmed by its woody texture. 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, local resource, eliminating the need to burn or landfill. Be sure to add a quality organic fertilizer when planting edibles. They are heavy feeders and need their vitamins. Since 1925, family owned and operated Kellogg Garden Products have been producing quality organic soils and fertilizers and is committed to using natural, earth friendly ingredients to create credible organic products for your garden.

  • With wood fines; more sustainable - better soil structure
  • All organic with added fertilizers: bat guano, poultry manure and kelp meal

I would not advise. I used this for my herb pots, tomatoes, begonias, lilies... all my pots. In the ones I have to keep moist I've had fungus gnat infestation, and mushrooms.

Answer: 
Yes, I think so, it's for raised beds, which I consider containers, I used to use Miracle Grow container mix but switched to this product because you don't need to add dirt to it. It is much coarser than some of the fine mixes. It has no vermiculite or fertilizer in it.

Answer: 
I would suggest a simple soil test kit to support the specific plants you want to grow. It's difficult to say just by looking at it, but I would venture to guess it's in the middle of the acidic/alkaline arena.

Answer: 
We try to keep our potting soil right at the 7.0 pH mark. For increased alkalinity, I'd recommend adding dolomite lime or other liming agent to your soil.

The dimensions listed for the bag calculate to 2.34 cu. feet not 3.0 in a bag. Please advise. It makes a big difference for large projects.

Answer: 
The mix is somewhat compacted and will fluff up a bit once you open the bag. I would advise mixing with your own garden soil or other soil amendments, especially if you're starting seeds in your beds, as it may not be fine enough for starting smaller seeds.

I don't know for sure but this is highly compressed material just like peat moss is highly compressed. Unlike Miracle Grow which is loose in a bag.

Answer: 
Hi, we compress our 3 cu. ft. bags before shipping to make transportation easier. You'll want to fluff it up a bit with a rake or shovel before planting to allow for better root growth. If your project is 81 cu. ft. and there's 3.0 cu. ft. in a bag, you'll need 27 bags.

3 cu. ft. Raised Bed and Potting Mix Premium Outdoor Container Mix is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do NOT BUY. You've been warned. I don't know what's REALLY in this stuff, but four bags of this nearly killed all of my Sugar Black Rose cannabis clones early in May of this year. My partner and I pulled our plants completely out of the soil and then added/amended several bags of quality mushroom compost to the raised bed. We were fortunate in that all our cannabis survived and are still growing strong. Needless to say, we've learned our lesson. Never again. Note: On their website, this product states that its NPK ratio is 0.30, 0.10, 0.10. Even after doubling ('cause it's supposed to be organic LOL), those numbers are WAY too low. Buyer BEWARE!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst potting soil ever!!! I wish that I had read all the reviews before I bought and planted by two raised garden beds. I was so excited to be finally growing vegetables after a long time of no place. This says its complete and provides all the nutrients a plant needs. WRONG!!!!! Just like everyone else is saying my leaves are all yellow. Plants are not thriving. Zucchini, which always grows like a weed for me, gets blossom rot (supposed to be from inadequate calcium). DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!! It is not what is claims to be and should be taken off the market. $200 later I have had one zucchini and one tomato.

I purchased 5 bags of this product for my two vegetable beds (8x4 and 4x4) Results have been more than satisfying. I sowed peas, mustard, fenugreek, carrots and cauliflower (as shown in the pictures). All sprouted within their expected timelines. Being a novice gardener, I was skeptical about this product after reading so many negative reviews. But I am glad I listened to a store advisor on this one. Let us see how the plants do after they grow up further.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing I bought 9 bags for my raised bed. I mixed organic granular fertilizer to the potting mix but the seedlings did very poorly. Because the mix was so porous I had to keep watering and white fungi started growing. My vegetables were a total failure this year. I would not recommend this product nor the Kellog's All Natural Soil (soil with chopped up wood).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Home Depot needs to screen its products better This is the second year I have bought organic Potting soil from Home Depot. Last year was a different brand, which was horrible also. I expect Home Depot to screen their garden products as well as they do their in store products. I will be shopping somewhere else for my garden needs.

I used this soil in my container garden for cold season crops and everything has failed miserably. I have planted wildflowers, veggies, and native harvested plants in this soil and everything has died or just failed to grow at all. I had spread some wildflower seeds in a container with this soil and on the ground in untreated dirt.... the dirt is way more productive than this stuff. The biggest issue however are the fungus gnats and mold! It doesn't matter how little I water, the gnats are out of control and only in the pots that I used this soil in. I also noticed that I generally have bad allergy attacks when working with this soil. I know, it's dirt ... but I've never been sent into sneezing fits using other products before. What a bummer
