Product Overview

  • Ready to use, no mixing
  • Made with wood fines, capturing benefits of the forest floor
  • Fertilize at planting and every 4-5 weeks after planting
Kellogg Garden Organics Raised Bed and Potting Mix is specially formulated for planting annuals and perennials, veggies and herbs in raised beds and container gardens. Ready to use right out of the bag, no mixing required. Added wood fines are a key, sustainable ingredient to this soil mix, mimicking what you find on the forest floor both in the benefits to plants and how it looks compared to conventional peat-based soil mixes. Like the forest, wood fines in the soil - help reduce soil compaction - help retain more moisture allowing for less frequent watering - provide benefits to help with pest and disease resistance. A quick fertilizer charge from poultry manure, worm castings, kelp meal and bat guano give your plants added nutrients at the time of planting. Be sure to add an organic granular fertilizer for continuous feeding through the season for all your flowers and veggies. They need their vitamins.
  • Ready to use - no mixing required
  • Made with wood fines for sustainability, moisture retention, pest and disease resistance
  • Added natural fertilizers: bat guano, poultry manure and kelp meal for a quick nutrient charge at time of planting
  • Perfect for transplants
  • Proven organic - OMRI listed

It's pretty heavy, but I lifted it just fine. I would say it weights about 40 pounds.

Upon opening the bags, I was struck by the asphalt smell that took 24 hours to go away. The soil was very black with lots of small bark. I noticed after watering and being in the sun made it very hard and compacted. It was even hard to dig into it with my hands and needed a spade instead. The small vegetable plants just sat there for two weeks until I moved them to another bed with different soil. The photos show some tomato seedlings I transplanted in the soil two weeks ago. They have done nothing. I have given them liquid organic fertilizer which normally helps. My theory is that the high wood content absorbs all the nutrients as it decomposes. It certainly would need lots of granular fertilizer mixed in to over come this. Why put yourself through such frustration. Fortunately the company refunded my money quickly and are reputable. I still won't try any of their products since their soil ingredients are questionable.

It is loaded with water retaining natural products, you can see this is a quality soil. Having said that let me say this: I gave it 4 stars because you will need to amend this soil to make it lighter, depending on the application use. Also, we received a pallet of this soil and let me warn people now - each bag (it was wet), weighed in at 100 pounds! My husband and I had to unload the pallet (48 bags) by hand into our backyard and it was quite a chore. If using this soil for potting mix purposes, amend it with vermiculite or it will be too heavy to use. We are using it in raised beds but I will still need to amend it to grow certain vegetables. Having said all this, it is a quality soil at an excellent price!

I had splurged and bought a few bags of the fancy boutique potting soil for last seasons containers (2018) but due to financial constraints decided I'd give this mix a try. It was interesting to get a side by side comparison of the two types. To be honest, I could not and can not to this day tell any difference. I'm in zone 9b so I over winter a lot of the containers and all have done well. Other than having to add a whole bunch of perlite to the Kelloggs mix to get better aeration, I can't justify paying 2-3x for the boutique mixes, as wonderful as they are. So, Kelloggs it is this year once more. Good product!

After buying 6 bags of this organic mix and reading all of the negative reviews this is my assessment: great product that plants love. Now retired, I have been gardening for 30 years and do not like to spend a fortune on dirt so I gave this stuff a try. Sure, it is clumpy and contains composted wood and other material, but in a natural setting this is what plants like. Even though they claim seeds may not grow well, I setup 6 pots with the soil straight out of the bag with flower seeds and they all germinated as shown in the picture. My wife prefers a finer mix so I sifted two of the bags (shown in the pictures) and found that the clumps were composted organics. After sifting I determined there was about 5% wood chips (by weight, about 10% by volume) which I used as mulch. Of course one would prefer the sifted dirt (my wife loves it), but the soil right out the bag works fine.

Since I have a little garden at home, I buy regularly stuff at HOME DEPOT. I have bought this product for the last 2 or 3 years, and I have used it to transplant seedlings once they are 4-5 weeks old. However, this year the mix has something. I am getting little mushrooms growing with my seedlings. They kind of stain the leaves of my little plant with a black color. I keep removing them, and they keep coming. I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BAD SOIL!! A 1 star is much too generous. I have been using Kellogg products for 3 years and I had recently bought 3 bags of bad soil. 80 of my wheatgrass plants smelled as if the plants had been watered with pure ammonia. I showed the folks at the store and they couldn't believe it. They said they had never seen anything like it before. I called the Kellogg Corp office to let them know my experience and they quickly dropped me like a hot potato. They refused to take any of my calls after being transferred. I was surprised that Kellogg didnt even care. I was even more disappointed that they never attempted to make a wrong, right. I immediately stopped using their product. I started using EcoScraps Organic potting soil and have been extremely pleased with this soil. Companies like Kellogg that choose to sell to the public should take care of their customers. Kellogg clearly does not care. I hope more people with similar experiences take the time to post on Yelp so that others are warned. Again, 1 star is much too generous.

I have used this brand many times and I'm happy with it though I should mention that I add a lot of extra organic material, nutrients, etc. If you're looking for a potting mix that has a lot of extra pizazz already included then you might want to try a different brand. This has and continues to work just fine for me. My major COMPLAINT at this time is that they reduced the volume but have kept the price the same. I used to buy bags that were 3 cu. feet for about $8 but now I can only find 2 cu. feet at the same price!

The vegetable plants are a little yellow, but starting to green up. Don't know if it's the soil or climate or both. The soil appears to be very rich and has a strong manure odor, so that really good. It doesn't have a lot of pine bark and other wood fillers, which is also great! Not liking the white flys swarming around the dirt, but I think this is going to be a great soil for my gardening/flower needs.
