Answer This Question

A:  Organic soils are not actually certified. However, they can be OMRI Listed (Organic Materials Review Institute) and OIM Approved (Organic Inout Materials) through California Dept of Food and Agriculture. Both entities adhere to the USDA National Organic Program guidelines for organic soils. All Kellogg Garden Organics soils are both OMRI Listed and OIM Approved.

    by|May 31, 2022
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  All Natural Raised Bed & Potting Mix can be used to plant citrus trees in a container. We recommend mixing in Kellogg Garden Organics Fruit Tree Granular Fertilizer at the time of planting, following the directions on the label to provide a slow release of nutrients - reapplying every 5-6 weeks during the growing season.

      Q:Hello, Will this be good soil to plant a large wisteria? Also some hydrangeas? Thanks
      by|May 11, 2022
      5 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  I'm really not sure, but my best guess is yes. If still in doubt, you can research it or ask someone at Home Depot in the garden section.

      by|Aug 1, 2022

      A:  Probably so, I used it in a raised bed for vegetables and it worked well. Keep in mind wisteria spreads like crazy.

      by|May 12, 2022

        A:  It should. The PH Range of this mix is 5.8-7.3. So check what your plants grow best at & see if that range is good.

        by|May 12, 2022

        A:  Raised Bed & Potting Mix will works well for planting both in large containers. While the Wisteria will not require a fertilizer, to support hydrangea blooms, we recommend adding an organic all purpose fertilizer at the time of planting.

          Q:What does this raised bed mix contain Is it potting soil compost and manure
          by|Apr 14, 2022

          Answer This Question

          A:  It is a soil and compost mix. Very dark. My plants are doing well.

          1 found this answer helpful

          A:  I don’t really thing it has manure in this, I always add fertilizer whenever I use this soil, I like this one because it allows you to cover more ground for the best price vs spending way more on another soil and having to purchase more bags to cover the same amount of area.

          by|May 13, 2022
          1 found this answer helpful

          A:  I do not believe it has any manure in it, it just does not have any pesticides in it to kill any living weeds or plant spores.

          A:  It is mostly bark! Roots dont take well in my experience. Miracle grow and others have this new compressed soil that is just epic. They are in square or rectangle-shaped bags. I have never seen plants or veggie plants grow so quickly!

            Kills plants
            This stuff is nasty. Here is a side by side comparison of broccoli. Left side is unamended soil from last year, right is Kellogg organic raised bed mix I bought in April. Same compost tea, water & sunshine. I bought new soil in June at a premium price, and transplanted over 75 plants to keep my greenhouse alive. Kellogg stunted my garden’s growth & cost me a lot of time and money!

              Returning this supposedly "organic" product
              Where's the dirt? I may never trust Home Depot's garden department again. This product is filled with tiny wood chips and small styrofoam pieces. The first is deceptive, and the latter definitely not something an organic gardener wants. It may be okay for non organic people who are willing to purchase the manufacturer's recommended plant feed to nourish the "soil" in the beginning and at 5-6 week intervals thereafter. It's not even mulch with all that plastic.

              The use of aged wood fines is more common in organic soil mixes than conventional synthetic soil mixes. It mimics the natural and organic activity that occurs on the forest floor. For nearly 100 years, we have used fully composted aged wood fines in our soil mixes for three reasons – Better soil structure with its slightly larger particle size helps air and water penetrate deeper into the soil, allowing for better root development and overall plant health – Excellent food source for beneficial soil microbes which help plants resist pests and disease – A more sustainable resource benefiting the environment. The small styrofoam pieces you see is perlite. Perlite is a natural ingredient - mined volcanic glass that has been steamed resulting in a light, airy pebble that looks like styrofoam... but it's not. Many potting mixes have perlite or pumice to help with moisture retention and drainage. KelloggGardenProducts

                Beyond disappointed
                I put in 6 new raised gardens this spring and used 16 bags of Kelloggs Garden soil. It ruined my gardens. Any plants that survived this soil are spindly and sick and are not going to produce. Now I need to remove all of this soil and replace with something else. This has been a terrible disappointment. NOTE: I put in an earlier review but it was requested prior to planting season and at that time I didn't realize the problems with this soil.

                Signs of stunted or spindly plants is an indication the nutrients in the soil have been used up by the plants and need to be replenished. We like to recommend adding an organic granular fertilizer at the time of planting to provide a slow release of nutrients since these get used up by the plant over time. Veggie plants for example, are heavy feeders and will not produce a very good crop without adding nutrients through the growing season. Doing so will ensure consistent plant growth and yield. Apply every 5-6 weeks during the growing season. KelloggGardenProducts

                  If I could I would give -10 stars
                  I bought 10+ bags of this garbage. All of my plants were healthy when I purchased them and or started from seed. They are all, everyone stunted and dying. This garden was supposed to feed my household and now I have to go buy veggies elsewhere. I didn't have the money to buy after the money I spent on getting the garden started. I am on a fixed income. Never will I buy this again!!! Very upset. The last 2 bags won't be used. Now I have to throw them all out.

                    Sorry for the folks with ruined plants... But
                    I haven't experienced any of the real negatives that other's have. Sure I have some mushrooms popping up, but I always seem to have that happen, it's not the end of the world. I like this stuff so far for how light it is since I'm using it in 5 gallon buckets. I did add about 2" of compost to the top though, not sure how big of a difference that makes.

                      I have buyers regrets.
                      I purchased two bags on 5/13/2022. When watering, a brown liquid drains from the soil and it smells stagnant. Soil was full of fungus gnats and larvae. I used boiling water to kill the gnats’ larvae in order to use it, and that helped. It had fungus growing on the product and corn kernels in the soil, which attracted insects that ate the kernels. The soil with no boiling water smelled and attracted fungus gnats and flies when it rained, more larvae. My tomato plant died. I discarded everything.

                        Consistent quality over time.
                        This has been our go to potting mix for years. It’s always consistent with few added surprises. (rocks, big sticks, etc) The plants grow really well in it.

                        DO NOT USE
                        I bought 40 bags to fill raised beds. I started all my plants from seed and babied them for months. They were strong and thriving. Once planted in this soil they were all stunted. Almost no growth. I direct planted several seeds as well and they all germinated and then nothing. I posted in a gardening group for advice and there were so many people who had the same exact experience with this soil. I wasted so much money. I wish I saved my receipts because I would be demanding my money back.

                          Great growing media for multiple different use
                          I’ve used multiple bags of this fine soil this year for container vegetables to seedling trees. Depending on the plant added more perlite or manure or compost. Even for new houseplants. Everything is growing well. Fertilizer does not last long due to daily watering and dripping out but I think that’s expected. My daughter is using this soil as well this year. Hope they don’t change the formula. Has just the right amount of perlite for raised beds. Nice earth smell as well. I highly recommend!

                          Cucumbers i planted turned yellow after flowers started showing. Got two irregular shaped cucumbers and that's all. Plants are dying like they are old and leaves are drying up. All this soil may be good for i growing poison ivy! I will have to dump $80 dollars worth of so called dirt somewhere and get good topsoil for next years crop.

                          Yellow leaves and minimal crop production are indictors the plant has used all the nutrients in the soil. Those nutrients need to be replenished.
