Please answer. Can it be used to plant pole and Bush beans? Here in new Mexico

yes . but to better have soil that will stay moist longer i would mix it with bag of top soil . they don't cost a lot. if you have leaves also put some on top to shield from hot sunny days the plant will come through the leaves toward the sun., but the sun won't dry out the soil it will last longer between watering.

I buy a LOT of this potting mix. And things look great! It's soil, so it's not too complicated...but I have never found any weird bits of plastic in this soil- and I have found that in others. It is more expensive than some brands.

Nice big bag of potting soil for a decent price. I always need more potting soil than I think so I get the big bags now. It is quality potting soil with perlite and it is cushiony when dry, seems to have a good amount of peat moss for holding in moisture. It does hold moisture well. It is also rich in nitrogen which helps a lot with better growth and blooms. You do not need to use fertilizer when using this soil, especially for the first year. The bag weighs about 35 lbs or so when dry. It is not organic.

Warning - check your bags for bad product!
I run a small nursery and go through about 10-15 large bags of Miracle Grow Potting Mix per week. I pay the premium for this soil because I can water less frequently and never need to fertilize. So I was pretty disappointed to find that all five 50-qt bags from my last order were full of nothing but twigs and peat. I see zero perlite or fertilizer in this mix, and it looks and smells like composted mulch, not soil. It's definitely not the proper product, and I suggest you check your bag before potting anything up with it. I hope Miracle Grow stands behind their product and makes this right for the customers that ended up with the defective bags. If they don't, a whole lot of people that don't know what this soil should look like are going to wonder why their plants didn't grow well this year.  My pictures show a handful of the real product full of perlite and fertilizer, next to the defective bags full of plain twigs and sticks.

Response from Miracle-gro TeamFeb 15, 2021
We are sorry to hear about the problem you encountered with Miracle-Gro Potting Mix. our growing media products undergo composting that kills most weed seeds however, some may remain as we do not sterilize our soils. Sterilizing the soil would kill beneficial microorganisms that help the plants grow. We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience, please call 877-220-3089 and reference this review for assistance. miracle-gro

My wife always trust this potting soil mix to plant her plants and they grow bigger and healthy, we bought some bags for different projects, like raised garden bead and potting in various sizes. Plants last longer because they feed in good quality soil.
