Rated 5.0 out of 5.0Â by mrcharlie Good for general use - consistently good quality
Have used this many times for all types of general potting and gardening needs, good consistent quality at a great price. As a basic general use soil it is great.

I used Earthgro potting soil for my very first ever container garden. Needless to say I am extremely nervous after reading all of the reviews from this website and from a big box store site. I am in wait and see mode now. I planted tomatoes, carrots, and green beans yesterday, today I will plant lettuce, cabbage, squash, cucumbers and watermelon. I will do all I can to ensure proper growth for my plants and seeds (including talking to them!) I purchased Earthgro because of the price. I wanted a container garden to help offset the cost of fresh produce this summer, and because of the nutritional advantages of "home grown" vegetables. What am I supposed to do if the soil I purchased kills my plants and seeds? I used precious resources to purchase everything I needed for my 50sf garden, and will be unable to replace/redo if the soil fails. I will return with a follow up post once I see how this soil is going to affect my plants. I really, really hope I did not make a mistake.
One note I would like to make, is I fill my container 5x10 full to the rim and smoothed out before I planted anything. It has rained and now the soil looks to have "sunk". Is this normal??? Does that mean I have good drainage? Or is my little garden destined for ruin?

I wish I'd thought to read reviews before I purchased 12cf (6 2cf bags) of this horrible product. I thought I'd save some money and it ended up costing me so much more replacing $200.00 worth of plants, plus time, plus new potting soil. I can't believe this is on the market.
So, my bags were basically wood shavings and manure. None of the other stuff that makes the mixture sound alright for potting soil. Maybe they don't mix it up, or I got the bad stuff off the top, or they don't really add in any of the stuff it says it has in it. I will never buy cheap potting soil again and will never buy anything 'Scott's' again because I'm so mad.

I have a new raised bed where I filled half miracle gro soil and half of earthgro potting soil. I planted cucumbers and lettuce in the earthgro side and they love it so far. They are growing beautifully. My only downside for this soil is that after a week of raining. (I live in Buffalo, NY) mushrooms started to come out where I have the earthgro. The mushrooms aren't the poisonous type I just took them out, but this concern me how much they sterilize this soil. I guess I shouldn't be using for vegetables, but I was trying to be cheap hehe.
