Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CD This product literally stinks!
I used 8 bags of this to fill a raised bed about 6 weeks ago and filled it with lovingly grown seedlings and sowed a selection of root vegetables. It has been an epic fail. The plants are failing, the leaves yellowing and withering, the seedlings that burst into life are as big now as they were after 1 week. I'm at a loss how to get my money back but will go back to the HD armed with receipts and photos. I have also complained directly to Kellogs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Snowball 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigBang Worked great for my raised bed garden
A customer and a home depot employee recommended this potting mix, and I filled my 12" x 8' x 4' garden with it about a month ago. I'm a novice gardner, so I just planted a variety of veggie starts and the results are excellent. I water regularly and after the first week or so I added Miracle Grow. Maybe it's the climate here in Eugene, Oregon - but my results just don't match the folks who have struck out with this product.

This stuff is horrible. Not only did it kill EVERY plant I transplanted into it, but it was full of gnat eggs. My greenhouse is now completely over run with gnats. I have complained to Kellogg, which received no reply. Seriously, HomeD...take this stuff off your shelves ASAP.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by tinathepumpkindiva should be called garden killer
purchased this because HD quit carrying my preferred brand. Not only did every single plant fail to thrive but all the pots grew mushrooms and had weird flies. It has no water retention properties. The pots drained so fast that there was no time for the plants to take up water.I had to dump every single pot, sanitize and start over. I will never purchase this product or anything else they make again. I just wish I still had the receipts for this and all the plants that died. A costly mistake I will never make again.

Kellogg All Natural (not the "Raised Bed") Potting Mix, 1 1/2 cu ft., was by far the worst potting soil. The bag was ridiculously heavy, I had to use a hand truck to get it to the garden. It has a fine, almost powdery texture. It doesn't retain water! In a pot which would normally require watering every 2-3 days, with the Kellogg, they start wilting in half a day. But even when I water them twice a day, the plants look sick!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Knuter Not good Vegetable Soil
This soil is advertised as a rich and nourishing soil for your garden. We made the mistake of using this in our new raised garden bed. Our vegetables have not thrived in it. They are stunted with yellow leaves. I even used a granular organic fertilizer and seed starter soil like they advise. I thought it was too much water, too little water, disease. The problem is the soil. It has too much wood shavings in it. This is putting WAY too much carbon in the soil and the plants aren't getting nitrogen. You can not use this soil as is like they advertise. Avoid.
