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

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
We've used it for two years now with perfect results on different plants - tomatoes, peppers, Zucchinni, Greens, Strawberries, and several others. It comes out of the bag as .1 .1 .1 which is more than any other bag that I have seen. But dont expect to successfully grow without adding more fertilizer AFTER the plant has gotten started on the nutrients in the soil. We start with a seedling or baby plant to use the .1 .1 .1 in the soil itself , then when they get big enough, add 10-10-5, and then when fully established add 18-18-21 once a month for the rest of the season. MY experience is that this is a good product. We have never had to mix with other soils. Maybe some of the negative comments are fueled by weather, or insects and not the soil.

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?

3 cu. ft. Raised Bed and Potting Mix Premium Outdoor Container Mix is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 383.
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.

After trying this mix for the first time, I'll never use it as a potting mix or for anything else, again. Filled bottom 2/3 of large tomato & pepper seed containers with it, with finer seed germination material in top 1/3. Seeds sprouted fine, but growth stopped soon after seed leaves (cotyledons) unfurled. After re-potting plants with another, slightly more expensive brand of potting soil, seedling growth re-continued. There's something in it that was inimical for my tomato (6 types) & pepper seedlings (2 types). Perhaps there's too much woody material in this stuff for a potting mix, I ended up just adding it to a mulch pile.

I bought a pallet of this product to fill raised beds for a new backyard garden. I was expecting really good results considering it was very expensive, organic plus soil. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! Everything I planted in this soil is NOT growing very well at all! Starts are stunned! And Seeds have not sprouted yet. I also purchased a pallet of Composted Cow Manure to create rows for mound planting. I have used it for years in my strawberry beds, Every row was just bags of manure sliced open and dumped on the ground. Everything I planted in the mounded rows of composted cow manure is growing beautifully. I feel like I was ripped off! What a tremendous waste of money and time! And effort! The organic mix takes a great deal of mixing and blending due to the "Plus" which is ash or fertilizers I don't know if 1 or both. I will never use the Kellogg's product again. I am going to take photos of my garden, mounds and beds, throughout the next few week to compare, and prove the progress or lack thereof of my gardens performance. If nothing changes in the raised beds with the Kellogg soil I am taking the photos and my receipt to HD for a refund. My husband and I were really looking forward to the 8 different variety of tomatoes I planted in the raised, and caged, beds. Talk about doing everything humanly possible to grow and protect the tomatoes from little creatures that love them too!

Used 8 bags to fill up a raised bed to a height of 1.5 feet high. planted several vegetables in raised bed with this soil and planted same seeds In ground(natural soil) one month later I compared both. In ground natural soil has seed germinating and is twice as bigger as the one planted in raised bed with this soil. Other vegetable leaves are turning yellow and appear to be dying. I don't recommend this product based on my experience.

It makes a great base for raised beds, and I use it to fill in areas where the soil has been depleted. This year I went to the Home Depot Memorial Day sale and met the representative for the Kellogg company. I'm sorry I did not get his name but he was incredibly helpful. He loaded four bags (heavy!) for me and took them out to my car. Great product, great company, great people working there.
