Kellogg Garden Organics All Natural Premium Outdoor Potting Mix is the perfect ready-to-use mix for all your outdoor container gardening projects. Specially designed with aged wood fines - it looks different than conventional peat-based potting mixes, but provides benefits much like the forest floor for growing annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs and more. Wood fines help the soil retain more moisture, reducing the need to water frequently. It also attracts beneficial soil microbes which aid in resistance to plant pest and disease, helping plants thrive in their outdoor containers. We added natural fertilizers like bat guano, poultry manure and kelp meal to give plants a good start. But don't forget to add an organic granular fertilizer for extended feeding throughout the growing season.

DOES NOT INCLUDE FERTILIZER
This is not a potting mix that you can use by itself. I used this for half of the plants in my container garden, along with half of the plants in a local garden center's potting soil. The plants in the Kellog soil are stunted and turning yellow, and the other plants are green and double in size. I had no idea that I had to add fertilizer to the Kellogg soil when I planted my seedlings (which were all from the same batch and planted at the same time). I only learned this from reading the responses from Kellogg on this page to many of the one-star reviews. Now I have to add liquid fertilizer and pray the plants can be saved, or just repot them altogether in Miracle Gro. I'm very disappointed in this product. I want my money back.

For the price it's a decent product. It doesn't have additives (vermiculite and perlite) as other brands, so I mixed in a "high end brand" to give the added ingredient I wanted. only time will tell if my strawberries will thrive. But it's a decent base to start from and helps stretch your dollars!

I am moving, so I potted up all my valuable garden plants to take with me. I put them in fabric grow pots filled with a mixture of this potting mix and coir (to make it lighter to carry). So far, the plants have been in their pots for a month and are thriving.

I love this outdoor potting soil. This is the 2nd time I've ordered it. Being able to have this huge bag delivered to my home is a GREAT , GREAT bonus ! I'm a disabled and I didn't have to try to find someone to go pick it up for me. This soil is very rich and moist and spreads easily. I have raised bed gardens and I have cute little sprouts already. Excited for my harvest ! Thank you Home Depot.

Premium,all natural, organic plus (what the heck is that), what a crock... This contained up to 4 inch long sticks, whole leaves, and is mainly wood chips with about 15% soil. I could have went to the community recycling center and picked up a better product for free. Glad I only wasted my money on one bag. Come on Home Depot can't you sell better products.

This is one of the best potting products I have come across in a long time. It is a little pricey but well worth it. Has a good mix of good well rotted aromatic manure and tons of rich humus. I am trying to figure out cost for amending my spring vegetable garden. Hope it stays on the market for a long time.

Garbage potting soil. Nearly two months after planting, my peppers and tomatoes have lost most of their leaves, leaves turned yellow, and they are barely taller than when I had purchased them even after following the water and fertilization directions. I replanted once thinking it was the pots I was using. Nope. Soil was nearly hard as rock at the surface and didn't want to absorb water while halfway down the soil was soaking wet, looked like mulch, and smelled terribly of manure. After another month of no growth and further dropping of leaves, I gave up and purchased some Miracle Grow soil and hope I can rescue the plants. The soil I dumped smells awful and must have some inhibitors in it as the root ball of all my plants was barely bigger than two months ago. Should have stuck with my tried and true Miracle Grow, even if it isn't organic. What a waste of money and time.

Response from Kellogg Garden ExpertJul 17, 2018
We are sorry to read about your experience. Many plants, particularly edibles, are heavy feeders, using up the nutrients in the soil for producing flowers and crops. As a result, those nutrients need to be replaced, feeding the soil to keep plants nourished. Stunted growth and/or yellow leaves are signs the plant have used all the nutrients available to them in the soil and need more. Applying an organic granular every 5-6 weeks supplemented with an organic liquid fertilizer every 2-3 weeks with your regular watering routine will replenish nutrients in the soil which will get your plants quickly back on track. Please contact us at info@kellogggarden so we can get more information regarding your experience. KelloggGardenProducts
