Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jazzymom Results are "atomic"
This potting mix contains the 1/3 coarse vermiculite, 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 mixed compost recommended by Mel Bartholomew, in his Square Foot Gardening books. I have bought the components and mixed my own, but this is the same thing and ready made. You need 16 bags to fill a 4'x4' raised SFG but it is an expense you will not have for a long time in the future. All you add every succeding year is a spade full of compost from your compost pile in each section. Why fight poor soil, breaking your back digging and tilling. The SFG method is so much easier and better. Definitely worth the one time start up cost.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by FOO2013 Easy, good quality and not too expensive
After doing lots of math and figuring out the logisitics of picking up the appropriate supplies to make Mel's Mix it turned out that the pre bagged mix was only slightly more expensive. Since I don't have a truck that would make bulk pickup easy this worked out great! Wish they'd stock it in store during Spring but oh well. The mix is beautifully dark and rich and while still a little early for a thorough review, we do have some peas popping up already! Let the square foot gardening adventure begin!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by CACKLE I just started square foot gardening and could not find vermiculite at a reasonable price. This is the perfect soil.
I just started square foot gardening and could not find vermiculite at a reasonable price. This is the perfect soil. The only problem is that it's pricey and I could not get it delivered to the Home Depot store. I ordered and had it delivered to my home for $55.00. Since I had 26 bags delivered it may have been worth it just to save my back. Although I don't know how the UPS guys felt about it. I do think that, when I do more beds next year, I will try regular gardening soil and see how it does compared to this soil.
