Can this potting soil be used outside in my garden?

I purchased this product in error instead of regular garden soil.

Flowering plants

Will.this potting mix be good for gardenias, roses and Hibiscus ?
Asked by: Lulu
Yes-especially in the summer if you keep these plants outside. These plants like to have moist roots.

what is the best combination of top soil & potting soil for tomatoes in containers?

Asked by: cajungal
I don't have access to good topsoil, so I just use the potting soil. I do leave the rooted plant in the growth medium when I plant and just bury it in the potting mix. I do use a tomato specific fertilizer throughout the season.

I'd received a humingbird feeder as a gift, so I purchased petunias, pentas and a gardenia plant, to attract the hummingbirds, as well as bees and butterflies. This Potting mix truly "lightened up" the ground soil with-peat moss that I'd also purchased, to plant the beautiful plants in pots. Our ground is so filled-with-roots that I knew pots would work best. I've seen even after only 4 days that the soil is moist, even without raining in our area. I believe that it's going to be an essential part of the process of preserving the plants and enjoying the essential feeders, for many months. Thank you, Miracle Gro!!

SOIL CONTAMINATED WITH FUNGUS GNATS Weeks after of having used the product I began to see in my apartment some insects, after i research internet turned out to be fungus gnats, i buy an infinity of insecticides for both the plants and my apartment, but how can I imagine these insects came from the soil, a couples months Fighting with this plague in my apartment, until one day I add water to my plants in the day (I always did it at night) I saw hundreds of these insects came out from the soil and the Larvaes in the soil. I am not exaggerating, nobody can imagine the nightmare I am living with this plague, after years of having my plants, taking care of them and giving all my attention, I do not know what else to do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not potting soil!! Purchased this regularly for years & it used to be potting soil (you know, the visibly brown light stuff with the white styrofoam balls & some small bark) BUT... The past few bags I've bought were straight up dark black muddy mix with mostly sticks & old wood chips poor man's top soil that leaves a very gray murky residue everywhere. This stuff has done nothing but smother & kill off my plants (indoor & outdoor potted plants). Never again will I use this anywhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flying gnat's and white larvae under leaves I used miracle grow soil to transplant some viola's that I had started from seeds ,when I started the seeds I used miracle grow seed starting mix and I had a bunch of spider mites, the soil was just crawling with tons of small spiders. When I transplanted them to bigger pots I got miracle grow potting soil and a bag of African violets mix and that was full of mold when I opened the bag ,I took that back and used the potting soil ,so now I have hundreds of small gnat's flying around and thousands of small white spots under the leaves.they are larvae and small hatched ones. After reading up on this I find out that all of the white spots under the leaves are feeding on the leaves,they suck the fluid out of the plant and kill it!! So after all of that hard work all of the plants are dead and I'm still dealing with all of these bugs!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It survived my novice ways For the first time ever, I decided I would buy a plant and pot it. Being young and reckless, I figured moisture control would be something I need because I have no idea what I am doing. WOW, this stuff really helps you control the moisture level in your plant. I WAY over-watered my plant (recall that I am young and reckless) and this stuff sucked it up like nothing and kept my fledgling plant from dying.
