Is this really organic and OMRI-certified as such, does compost component contain sewage sludge, aka biosolids?
Asked by: Mike
Square Foot Gardening Foundation replied to my question " Is Mel's Mix organic?" "No, the commercially available MM is not. If you wish to make your own organic mix it is 1/3 by volume peat moss (or coco coir), coarse vermiculite and a blended compost made of at least 5 different ingredients."

How much to buy?

I have one square foot gardening box, how many bags do I need?
Asked by: Diana
A 4 ft x 4 ft x 6 inch depth square foot garden is 8 cu. ft. 5 bags will get you 7.5 cu. ft. You are looking at approximately 100 dollars.

Since it is a product you carry can this product be ordered at a local store and sent to the local store to avoid the high shipping cost?

The cost per shipping is $10 per bag which is greater than the product.
Asked by: question1
I purchased 6 bags online and had them shipped free to the store. Next best thing to the store carrying it. Hope they continue this option. At times it has not available.

This is simply the best product hands down over all others, I dont know why home depot stopped stocking it at stores and i had to special order it. maybe miracle grow paid them more money to display their garbage. that is what miracle grow is Garbage. they put their fertilizer in with their soils. Its the worst, at first it can make plants look good but if you continue to use miracle grow , which is a salt based fertilizer it ends up killing plants because you have tooo much salts in the soil.

I am a long-time square foot gardener and this soil mix is the quickest, easiest way to getting started. My local Home Depot used to carry it in the store, but this year they decided not to. However, ordering it online and having it shipped to the store turned out to be the next best thing. I had heard on some SFG sites that HD was only shipping to the home and charging a high amount for shipping, but when I checked they had apparently decided to revisit the ship-to-store option. Hope they bring it back to the store, or at the very least continue to allow the free ship-to-store option. I got 6 bags!

Be aware that this is NOT the original Mel's Mix, as the reviewer of April 2017 mistakenly believed. It does not contain any peat moss or vermiculite. Now whether this cheaper, "economical" formulation works as well as the original Mel's Mix is arguable. I do not SFG but I can tell you this... don't use any kind of Mel's Mix for self-irrigating planters -- it will retain way too much water and go boggy.

Plants and seeds are showing great progress. All came up quickly or showed little "transplant shock". Soil holds moisture well without getting soggy. We have had a lot of rain the last 2.weeks. It seemed like the plants and especially seeds, would have drowned. But, no, they are doing well, except for the catnip, which I may have planted too deeply.

It is a little pricey, but it is definitely worth it. It was easier than trying to find everything and then mixing it. A little problem receiving it, but was quickly resolved. I definitely recommend ****

I have only had one for a couple of weeks and the plants perked up very nicely relative to the ones I have yet to plant. I had previously mixed the soil on my own, 1/3 compost, 1/2 peat moss and 1/3 coarse vermiculite, with great results. I was nervous this time because ordering as package vs mixing my own, there is no way for me to know the exact compost mix, and compost is the most important component. So far it is holding very well in 80° weather, the soil is moist (wicking from water reservoir on bottom) and plants are thriving. The top is covered with weed cloth to prevent wild seeds from blowing into the soil. They are shipped in a box, 2/box (75lb) and then (if any) 1/box (35lb), so if you order 5 you will get 2 x 70lb, plus 1x35lb. My brother said driver was cursing all the way up the stairs and I rushed out to ask to just leave the rest downstairs. Poor guy. It is pretty heavy, if you want to be nice to UPS driver let him/her leave it outside, as close as possible to the delivery truck, and offer water for the schlep.

My measurements indicate more like 1.3 cubic feet. As for its performance, ask me next summer when I will have had enough experience with it.
