Mostly clay, some sand, a few sticks. Total garbage. Unusable - it will make your soil worse.

Is this certified organic?

Asked by Amanda January 14, 2018

Answers

NO WAY. I purchased a number of bags for the first time this year and it was full of garbage - landfill type garbage! Broken glass, pieces of plastic, rusty wire twist ties, etc, etc.

Great to mix with native soil. You can sprinkle a handful in pots.

why is the bag filled with large rocks and wood chips ?

Asked by Andre June 24, 2019
4
Answers

Although I did purchase this item some time ago ,it is possible that the manufacturer has changed the ingredients however it did not contain any large rocks or large woodchips . Could it be a misprint or just an inaccurate description that you read rather than what it actually contains?

How many pounds are in this bag?

Asked by Chris June 25, 2016
4
Answers

About 40 pounds. About 39 pounds will be compost, about a pound will be uncomposted sticks, and the remainder will be plastic bag fragments, wire, broken glass and a stick pin.

Since this contains yard waste and food waste, is it safe to use on vegetables and other food crops?

Asked by Tony123 June 5, 2016
4
Answers

I bought a bag to see what was inside before I bought a large quantity for this same purpose. I would not use it on food crops. My bag contained hard, uncomposted wood chunks that were suspiciously black in color. I suspect they were dyed black to make them resemble compost but that dye may not be safe for edibles.

i have a small lawn can i use this product to top dress my lawn

Asked by mmoyajettek February 18, 2017
4
Answers

there is a 'top dress' specifically made for lawns. it might be from Miracle Gro. I have used it to go over newly planted grass seed. I'd save the compost for trees, etc. Mine love it.

If we thought about weight , then how much a bag weights (in kg)

Asked by ajinkya December 17, 2017
3
Answers

Probably around 15-18 kg. A similar sized bag of compost (that does not contain trash like this one) weighs 40 pounds, compost in general varies a bit depending on how wet it is. Buy another brand.

This product is the definition of greenwashing. It is not organic, despite the product label stating "For Easy-Peasy Organic Gardening". This compost ruined my organic garden. it was only after dumping and spreading it in my garden, that I began finding broken glass, metal scraps, and every imaginable type of plastic fragments from grocery bags, product labels, (you name it) within chunks of this compost. There were even several pieces of styrofoam from what appeared to be cups or to-go food containers. This product is a waste of your time and money and will ruin a good organic garden. Now every time it rains or when I water, more trash gets revealed and I have to go picking again. Its the gift that keeps on giving. See picture attached for just a sample of what I picked out this morning.

This is definitely NOT compost. It is better described as black-dyed ground up wood chunks. If you need a product to loosen up heavy clay soil for non-edible plantings or if you need mulch, this would be ok, but if you are expecting actual compost and know what completed compost is, this is not for you. I need compost to amend soil in a vegetable garden and thankfully, I bought only one bag to check it out. I would not feel safe using this product in a garden bed where food is grown. The fact that these hard wood chunks are solid black indicates to me that they are dyed to give the uninitiated the impression that they are holding "black gold" compost, but it's really just chunks of black wood. Shame on Miracle Gro for selling a bag of snake-oil.

We are sorry that you are unhappy with Nature's Care Really Good Compost. Most of our soils are made of composted forest products and contain very little, if any, actual soil. These composted forest products provide high organic content and nutrients without the concern for soil compaction and allows for air to reach the roots of the plant which improves plant performance. 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 us and refer to your review to see what can be done. Our phone number is 877-220-3089. scotts

Terrible product - Not even worth one star! I put down 9 bags in a raised bed in May and the compost came out of the bags like solid bricks. I tried to break it up but it was like chopping bricks - absolutely unworkable. Thinking it was because it had gotten damp at The Home Depot maybe, I watered it all with the hose to break it up. I was already regretting buying this product, but my thoughts were that the water would break it up and then in a day or two all would be good. When I went back to it and started to loosen it up, I began to find lots of garbage! Broken glass, shards of glass, soft plastic, hard plastic, rusty old twist ties. I was shocked. It looks like it all came from a LANDFILL! And after a few days of sitting there, the entire bed was full of MUSHROOMS! This is in my vegetable garden now so I am very upset. I wrote to Scotts and asked 1. is this product SAFE for my vegetable garden and 2, where is the source of the product. They responded with a canned form letter "sorry to hear that the product did not meet your expectations. Your feedback is extremely valuable - bla bla bla...…" and made NO effort to answer my two important questions. See the attached photo of what I have pulled out of this compost. How manipulative to name it "Really Good Compost" because nothing could be further from the truth.

Terrible! we put this specifically around our seedlings and spread over the top of one garden plot, and everywhere we put it, literally hundreds of tiny weeds sprouted within 2 weeks! it will take awhile to pull them out. We know these weeds were not in the garden beforehand, because there are none in the places that we did not spread this compost. thankfully the store gave us a refund.

We are sorry you were not satisfied with the Miracle-Gro Nature's Care Really Good Compost you purchased. We understand that it is very disappointing when weeds invade a desirable garden growing area, yet it is a common problem. We do not sterilize our soils nor do we claim to on the package. While the composting process generally kills most weed seeds, there can still be some viable seeds after composting. We are happy to hear the store was able to honor our product guarantee. If you have any questions please call us at 877-220-3089, please refer to your review when calling. scotts

Horrible product, waste of money!

Horrible product. I wish I had read some of the reviews before purchasing. I would strongly recommend using no compost at all over using this. I have multiple raised tomato beds in my garden. One had Coast of Maine Quoddy Blend Lobster Compost added, one had Black Kow and one had Nature's Care. Some other containers have garden soil and potting soil with no compost. All the tomatoes are growing - except the Nature's Care plants. They are tiny, thin, yellow and sickly. The Coast of Maine compost tomatoes look the best, then the potting soil, then the black kow and plain soil are more of a tie, but the Nature's Care plants look absolutely horrible. I can't believe I wasted so much money on their product. Also, the Home Depot salesperson said that it was "organic compost." It's not even close. There was so much shredded plastic and other debris in the bags, sticks that clearly had not broken down yet, and one bag had mold. It says "organic matter" on the front of the bag, which is not the same as organic. I wish I had paid more attention instead of listening to the recommendation from the salesperson. I am attaching a photo. The bed on the left is Coast of Maine. The bed on the right is Nature's Care.

We are sorry that you have experienced problems while using Miracle-Gro Nature's Care Really Good Compost. We make every effort to ensure that our product is safe to use. Nature's Care Compost has proven to be a good product and has been thoroughly performance tested.

The growing media product you purchased does not inherently contain harmful substances. While it is not sterilized, Nature's CareCompost has undergone a composting process that kills most harmful microorganisms while allowing beneficial microorganisms to survive. Note that organic products can become infested with harmful fungi or insects once they are opened and used. For this reason, we recommend contacting your local nursery about the problem you experienced with your plants. They can help you to determine if disease, insects, or other environmental factors have played a role in the problem you have experienced.

We do have a product guarantee that covers all of our products, including our compost. We would like to speak with you more about this issue. At your earliest convenience, we ask that you call us at 877-220-3089 and refer to your review so that we can discuss our guarantee. scotts
