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. So I think if you broke open the bag and fluffed it up it would be 3 cf. You wouldn’t leave it as a compressed block because nothing would grow in it would be so tight, Just like peat moss you take it out of the bag and separate (fluff) it up. Compressed it a Read More

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.

Rated 2.2 out of 5 by 47 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stay Away!!! 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. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst purches ever The soil came with Thrips when you buy soil you shouldn't have to worry about it coming with pests home depots quality control is lacking July 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible! 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!! July 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 15, 2016
