Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarlB Vertical Garden with Miracle Grow
I installed a vertical garden over the Memorial Holiday weekend on our side yard (facing east), I drilled 2" holes on both sides of the pipe with 6" spacing and I cut the pipes to 92"and filled with Miraclegrow. I plan on planning more strawberries, lettuce, peas, basil etc, with the 10 pipes we have 140 plant positions (see attached pics),
this product is very easy to work with and rigid enough to stand up to my needs, (we tested one pipe for 3 weeks and we have red, yellow and green pepper growing with strawberries at the bottom.

The name is misleading. This is not a soil. It is an additive. You must mix it with soil to get the expected results. Follow the directions on the package and you will have good results. Home Depot offers a StaGreen product that is somewhat better quality at a slightly lower cost. It includes perllite which improves drainage, which is especially important in potted plants.

I have to laugh when I read the reviews that talk about how terrible this is for houseplants, etc. The packaging and online description clearly states that it is for OUTDOOR use. If you want something for houseplants, get potting soil instead. This garden soil works great when used as intended. I am planning on buying more this weekend.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DeborahMou It is NOT garden SOIL
I have done a lot of gardening, vegetable and fruit. I was surprised when I got this product home and opened it....expected soil, but instead got a soil amendment. Because I loved Miracle Gro products I decided to try it anyway....and found it to break up my "clay" soil better than anything I had mixed with it before. Decided it was a blessing in disguise.
To my surprise, it seems to stop any germination of the seeds I planted. Does well with "transplants".....but seeds are having a very hard time germinating. I have replanted several times, but they do not seem capable of breaking through the soil. I resorted to buying transplants, which is doing better. I am praying they grow and produce.....cause I put a lot of work into this garden. I am trying to stretch my food budget...so I will cross my fingers.

I purchased 3 bags of garden soil, the product was terrible, it was wet and it had an awful smell. I have used this product before, it wasn't like this what happen? Not sure if it will work.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kirstenk miracle grow killed my plants!
I repotted four healthy, thriving plants in your moisture control potting soil and all four took a nosedive, one of which was a plant from my Grandmothers funeral, and very sentimental to me, has died. The leaves became totally soggy and limp and dropped off. The creeping charlie, which people usually can't kill, is barely hanging on and the new growth is totally stunted. I don't know what was in this soil, I suspect some kind of herbicide or even salt, because the soil appears very gray even a fewbhourscafter watering
. I pretty upset.

I mixed this with my native soil and added some organic matter. All seeds are spouted within a week and growing vigorously. No odor, easy to use and conveniently packaged.

It says "garden soil" on the bag, but, now I read the small print and my 2'X8' raised garden is doomed. I bought 18 large bags, not realizing that I was buying an amendment and not "SOIL." Very disappointed in your labeling. What do I do now, Yuk?
