Questions & Answers

Why can't you use this in containers?

Asked by: LeeAnne
LeeAnne, you don't want to use Miracle-Gro Organic Choice Garden Soil in containers because this soil is too dense for container plants and may suffocate plant roots. This can be used in a raised bed when mixed half and half with potting soil.

1.5 cu. ft. Organic Choice Garden Soil is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not much better than a bag of mulch I wish I could attach a picture. This stuff is mostly wood chips. I followed the directions, but my raised bed garden is producing poorly. Due to the amount of wood in this product, my plants are having a hard time taking up nutrients and it dries out quickly. I bought 20 bags of this mess and pretty much have a non producing garden. Don't Waste Your money!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT soil! I just purchased the raised beds, and had to fill them with soil, as the ground in my area is primarily made up of clay. I've seen some strong rooting in my plants, but I do have a few small issues: 1) The price is not fantastic, if you end up having to buy several bags. Believe me, it begins to add up. 2) One bag I bought had a bunch of small stones in it, as well as some used candy wrappers. Yeah. I spent 20 minutes picking out the rocks. Now, that was only ONE bag, but it was still annoying. 3) As great as this soil is, (and it is! I mean, I still buy it!) I feel like your best bet is to buy this soil, and then supplement it with even more bags of a nice humus & manure mix. Home Depot also has a couple of types of this. Not a WIDE variety, but what they have is good. I've also mixed that with Bone Meal. That trifecta of the organic soil, manure & humus, and bone meal, has brought me a very nice start indeed to my summer garden. Conclusion: If you're looking for a one-stop-shop of soil, this may not be it. But if you're willing to put in a little elbow grease, you can really make it work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy on wood, light on compost... but still good For a raised vegetable garden, it's a good base soil for the bulk of the bed (especially if you find it on sale) but I recommend mixing in a nice 1 inch or so of good organic compost. If you can find a blended one made from various manures as well as food waste your vegetables thrive. You may also want to consider adding some peat moss for some added moisture retention. For those that can't, don't or won't read the bag does include a symbol that will hopefully make you realize this is NOT FOR CONTAINERS. According to the bag the ingredients vary by location. I'm in Texas so the product available from other locations my vary from my pictures.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not What I Expected From Miracle Gro We bought 10 bags of this to fill our brand new raised beds. Had I been home when the soil was put into the beds I would have shouted "hold it!" when seeing the quality, but I was not home so the beds were filled. This soil has a great amount if large wood chips in it. It looks horrible. I tried growing peppers and herbs and they turned yellow and died. Our newly landscaped garden is an embarrassment!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wood chips mostly Last year I purchased 50 bags of Miracle-Gro Organic Choice Garden Soil. The bags contained little soil and a lot of wood chips. By the end of the season, the soil was washed down with watering while the wood chips all remained on the surface. Now, by next spring, the wood chips have mostly decomposed . So, the soil level in my garden has shrunk to the same level where I started in the spring of last year. I would buy another brand of soil this year and would NOT recommend Miracle-Gro Organic Choice Garden Soil to other gardeners

Rated 4 out of 5 by from organic is the buzz word and I am trying to eat healthier foods so far I am seeing good results with this being mixed into my regular garden soil. One question/answer I did not find on the package label is regarding the manure - does this manure come from non-chemical grazing land? If it is a by-product from the feed lots then the organic label is misleading.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Plastic scraps I bought one bag which I'm using in containers anyways even though it states not to. I used a cup to separate the "organic" soil into the containers so I was up close and personal to the soil. I found at least 10 pieces of plastic inside. Some pieces were soft and looked like they were from recycled bags (clear and colored). Some pieces were hard and even had other product logos still visibly printed onto them. Having plastic in the soil does not seem to organic. The next time I went to Home Depot I bought a bag of Vigoro "organic" soil and I had the same issue with finding at least 10 pieces of hard and soft plastic within the soil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tride and True You cannot go wrong with this soil! It will make the most difficult plants thrive and your veggies will be very productive. Due to the price however, we use this soil with a mixture of compost and rose soil (to amend our heavy clay), which makes it spread further. Highly Recommended Product!
