  • 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.

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.

I'm trying to grow vegetables from seed in a 16-inch-deep bed. Given the bad reviews this produce has (but cheap price), would it be cost-effective to use this as a bottom layer of my bed, and buy more expensive/better soil on top, in order to save money?
Asked by: Jackson
I've read the reviews and the BS responses from Kellogg. This stuff is chipped up garden/yard trash and landscaping waste. Not definable as "soil" in and language. How can it be "premium" when Kellogg themselves state to add fertilizer???!!!!

I didn't read the labeling correctly until I had already used this "potting mix" in pots to start a potted vegetable garden. The pots are about 20 inches diameter (not sure that makes a difference). I planted cherry tomatoes, cucumbers and carrots. I'm thinking I should of used soil specifically for pots? should I leave things alone since i have already planted and watered? or would it be best to take things out and re-do with potting soil specifically for pots and not raised beds?

Use it for pots all the time

3 cu. ft. Raised Bed and Potting Mix Premium Outdoor Container Mix is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 297.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for raised beds I have an 18"-20" deep raised bed that goes around the perimeter of my back yard. I planted Texas Privet in the raised bed to create a natural privacy screen. After 2 weeks, the privet started looking a little sad. I dug a small hole in the bed and discovered it was pretty dry and hot just 5-6" down. Turns out I was not providing enough water to soak the soil for the plants. I was fooled into thinking I had watered enough when the top few inches were damp. When I drenched the soil, it seemed to hold the water very well. The privet is now thriving with lots of new growth and I don't need to water as often since it seems to be damp whenever I dig a small "test hole." The lesson learned - when the instructions say "water thouroughly," you should water thoroughly. After about 4 months the soil has settled and I have recently added an additional few bags. This time I soaked the soil as I added it to the beds. Wish I had done it that way the first time. I'm very pleased with the results.

I have been using this product for 4 years in my garden and I have "never" had an issue. I read one review that ants were inside, I really had to roll my eyes at that one! I mean (ants) will get into your garden no matter what soil you use, hello? Put out some good ant poison because ants will farm aphids in your garden; if you see ants I would think you got some (good soil) and they want to start a farm in your garden. Here are some photos from my previous years. I keep photos from my facebook page. I also do a youtube channel talking about gardening and garden hacks called "girly hobbies". One thing I do notice about this potting mix is sometimes it drains too well, that's good but if you want to retain some moister you may want to mix it with some potting soil especially if your using pots. My mom likes to mix this because she doesn't like the drain in "her garden" but in my garden I have a drip irrigation on a timer that waters once in the morning and once in the evening so it's no problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Mix for the Price I see a lot of reviews talking about soil and plants not doing well. This is potting mix and not to be confused with potting soil. Soil provides nutrients for plants on it's own unlike mix which is more of a medium to contain the roots and support the plant. It only comes with a trace amount of NPK. Nutrients are added manually with compost and or fertilizer. That being said I sowed carrots and arugula in planter boxes outdoors using this mix and they germinated fine and I now have lots of seedlings. It is a rough mix and I dock it a star for that. It's not fully broken down like a more expensive potting mix would be.There is a large amount of wood chips and bark ie: Forest products. I usually buy the big yellow 1.5 cf bags of the other brand and so far I like this one better. The others always seem more musty and more dense. This one drains very so it should be ok for container gardening, self watering containers, etc. I'll update if my experience changes.

I've been gardening for years and, it took about 3 years of trial and error to get a solid vegetable garden going. Maybe it was coincidental that my best year, was the first year I used Kellogg soil. I also make my own compost, with worms and mix for slow, long-term moisture and fertilizer. Even with this method, I still need to add fertilizer. Veggies need a lot of water and nutrients to grow big. You can't just plant seeds and hope they will grow then, blame the soil when they don't. There are too many variables to consider. I always start my seedings indoors, except for beans and lettuces, which are sown directly in the soil. Not every seed will germinate and, not every seedling is strong enough to grow up. Sow more and weed out the weak. There is such a thing as too much sun and heat. One of my earliest mysteries of gardening was, going to sleep with seedlings outside and waking up to them having vanished completely. Gardeners MUST invest in pest prevention and be fully attentive from the beginning, in order to have a successful harvest. Check over your garden every morning and remove pests if necessary. Slugs and snails will be your earliest enemy. Sink small yogurt cups into the soil and, fill them with beer. Spritz diluted neem oil for most insects. Spritz diluted low fat milk on fungus. Use deterrents for rodents, rabbits and deer or, intentionally feed them on another part of your property. Birds will always be a challenge. Welcome snakes. You can't be a gardner without acknowledging the outside world and all the challenges involved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Purchased 8 bags, NOTHING grows I successfully used Nature’s Care potting mix & raised bed soil for years. Couldn’t find it locally so I tried Kellogg organics. NOTHING will grow! I thought the garden seeds were defective, so I split a pkg of seeds. The half planted in this product did not sprout. The other half had no problem.

Meant to have oxygene for establishing great root system and allowing sufface to dry helping to prevent mold mildew and insect problems. Deep watering is a most. Learning to garden is not easy and takes time and patients.

Nice fine potting soil with enough small pieces of wood to start a campfire in a pinch. Have had some of the seedlings wither and die before reaching sufficient size to enable transplanting. Not sure what causes this.
