Answer: 
This is too heavy to use in containers. There is a very nice potting soil that is better (much lighter texture). The bags look the same so make sure you choose the potting soil.

Answer: 
No, we do not recommend using Miracle Garden Soil For Flowers & Vegetables in a container. The soil is for in-ground use only. It is too dense for container plants and may suffocate plant roots.

A good soil for you to use in your Raised Bed would be Miracle-Gro Nature's Care Raised Bed Soil with Water Conserve.

Answer: 
The term cubic foot is an Imperial and US customary (non-metric) unit of volume. It is not a unit of weight. The bags are measured in volume so that it is easier to estimate the amount of bags required to cover an area at a particular depth. For instance, four 1 cubic foot bags of soil will cover a 24 square foot area to the depth of 2 inches deep; while it would take 6 bags to cover the same area at a Read More

Last year my garden did fine, decided to make a raised bed from cinder blocks which are not harmful to the plants, and fill it with this trash. I literally had to buy every plant twice. why? the first plants would grow just a bit - like 1 leaf - then die of root rot. same thing happened to my house plants that I potted with this. Once I removed this soil (after swapping out dead plant after dead plant) my Plants grew just fine. I wont be getting this ever again. Do your research, and spend a little more, or you'll be buying a while new garden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My plants like it I use Miracle Gro all purpose bag to mix with my soil when replanting or adding on top of already planted flowers and pots. You can see the difference in a couple of days. I will keep using this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not expect this from Miracle Grow! Extremely disappointed with this purchase. Bought 18 bags on sale and most of them sleeping in my garage, not sure what to do with them. Below are the complaints, a. Soil contains raw wood which is still not being rotten enough to be a compost. I also found few big pieces of wood. b. There are other materials found apart from some big pebble stones and wood chunks. Not sure if those are plastic. c. This is my biggest concern, when I water the soil, the water does seep inside and absorbed, but I see dry dusty soil just like one inch below the place I just watered. Even after soaking the soil, I saw spots of very dry soil underneath. I am very concerned with the tender plantation I have put on there. Please don't buy this rubbish!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bags of Mulch, not soil I bought 8 bags of what I thought would be Garden Soil. Upon opening the bags I discovered that they were incredibly mulch-like: they were full of uncomposted wood chips. Because I was impatient I used the mulch to fill my 6'x6' raised bed anyway, and then planted the plants I had in holes that I filled with home-produced compost thinking I could get away with that. Not so much. My plants all exhibit stunted growth and low flowering/fruit yield. The mulch is extremely compacted which is complicating soil drainage. I am incredibly disappointed, the bags did not contain rich, dark soil like I had wished.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from oops bad choice I thought Miracle Gro was a good brand name so I bought about 8 bags for my new planter box. A few days after planting we started noticing gnats and little winged critters all over the top of the soil. So I googled "gnats in garden bed" and found that Miracle Gro soil is contaminated, "Miracle-Gro Potting Soil and Fungus Gnat Infestations" was the title. The search result was the first one. Now I have to either dump it and start over or try to exterminate the problem. Will never buy Miracle gro again. Buyer beware.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from READ THE INGREDIENTS BEFORE YOU BUY THIS PRODUCT SHOULD NOT BE LISTED AS "GARDEN SOIL" THE INGREDIENTS DO NOT INCLUDE GARDEN OR SOIL IN IT'S DESCRIPTION OF WHAT IS IN THIS BAG. NUMBER 1 IN THE INSTRUCTIONS TELL YOU TO MIX WITH NATIVE SOIL. I LIST THIS AS AN AVERAGE VALUE BECAUSE IT IS A GREAT AMMENDMENT TO THE SOIL AND I ONLY PAID $2.00 FOR A BAG. SO IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR GARDEN SOIL FOR PLANTING YOUR VEGETABLES OR FLOWERS - THIS IS NOT FOR YOU

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Trash I've been very disappointed in Miracle-Gro garden soil for vegetables and flowers. Last year I purchased 4 or 5 bags and was disappointed to find large rocks, bits of plastic bag. I removed these items from the dirt as I found them and didn't think much of it at first. Then I stated findings candy bar wrappers, bits of Christmas lights without the bulbs, and the end of a cigar pipe. Trash. I found trash. This is not what I want in my garden. I felt annoyed but I removed the items still feeling that the product would overall be ok to grow my vegetables in. I reuse my soil, so this year as I was filling my planters and planting bulbs I found a battery, AA! I'm disgusted that this trash is in my garden, and now I'm worried about what else is in there and if any battery acid contaminated the soil that's I've been holding in my hands and growing onions and carrots in that I then ate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from PLEASE READ WARRANTY! After a disappointing experience with this I read the horrid reviews, but noticed the manufacturers' warranty for money back if your not satisfied with your purchase within six months. Take advantage!
