Q:I want to revive some of my potted plants soil. Can I add tis to the old potting soil? I was thinking of 50/50 mixture
by|Aug 24, 2022

Answer This Question

A:  Yes. You can add it to old potting soil.

by|Aug 24, 2022

    A:  I have potted plants and fruit trees. That's how I usually replenish the soil. I do a 60% soil and 40%compost. I also use it as mulch. It works pretty well that way. My plants and trees thrive and of course I fertilize regularly.

    by|Aug 31, 2022

      A:  I believe it would work well to rejuvenate your soil-but I am a beginning gardener, so keep that in mind. 

      by|Aug 30, 2022

        A:  Miracle-Gro Nature's Care Really Good Compost is for outdoor in-ground use only. You can not mix this with potting soil for containers. While technically potting mixes can be reused, we do not recommend it. Old potting mix can be deficient in micronutrients that are not always available in a plant food. Also the slow release fertilizer will be gone.

          A:  No, I purchased this compost because I have another peony tree on order that will be shipped in September. I am preparing the site so that it will be ready for the tree to plant in the fall.

          by|Jun 30, 2022

          A:  Miracle-Gro Nature's Care Really Good Compost can be used as a top dressing for any lawn type. Do not use more than 1/4 inch of product at any one time when topdressing an existing lawn.

            Q:Why does the website state that there are 47 bags of this compost in stock at the Portsmouth, Va when the truth is they are out?

            Answer This Question

            A:  No idea I live in PA. Maybe a contractor bought it out before it was updated in the system. 

            by|Apr 14, 2022

              A:  Hi Dayquil. Thank you for your question. I am so sorry to hear about the on-hand stock error at your Portsmouth Home Depot. Unfortunately, the online server does have a delay in updating what is actually on hand. In addition, the damaged bags may not have been removed from the inventory as well those bags in customers shopping carts still in the store. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

              Q:Why can't this be mixed with top soil to make a raised bed?
              by|Apr 1, 2022
              2 Answers
              Answer This Question

              A:  These types of soils are too dense for container plants and may suffocate plant roots. Miracle-Gro Nature's Care Really Good Compost can be used in a raised bed when mixed with potting soil. Use a 50/50 mix of potting soil and garden soil/topsoil/Planting Soil.

              by|Apr 1, 2022

                A:  I suppose it could, but I purchased it to make "The Perfect Soil" from the recipe in Mel Barholomew's book - "Square Foot Gardening," combining Peat Moss, Vermiculite, and compost.

                  Great for plants
                  Good quality compost. Fall seeds are sprouting up well so it seems to be great at feeding them.

                  Awful soil
                  I used it for lettuce and tomato plants. Lettuce never gre big in size. On 3-4 inches in size. My tomato plants are all on the very smaller side 1 1/2 feet tall with 1 tomato growing on each plant. Meanwhile, I have another bed with different soil and my tomato plants and lettuce are so big and producing lots of tomatoes.

                  We are sorry to hear about your experience when using Miracle-Gro Nature's Care Really Good Compost. This soil must be mixed at least 50/50 with the native existing earth. Otherwise distinct soil layers will form. These layers are not good for the growth of plants. At your convenience, please contact us to see what we can do to help.

                    Bought at a Houston area Home Depot. Lots of wood.
                    I used my home made compost screen to sort through each bag. Out of 20 bags, very little trash. Around half a dozen small stones in each bag. I did find a lot of wood chunks and pieces of branches. I filled a 5 gallon bucket about 2/3 of the way with stuff that would not make it through the screen. -This is not ideal for root crops, carrots, radishes, beets, etc. - Keep a close eye out for nitrogen deficiency in your plants. - Good for those on a budget. - Don't use without screening.

                      Really DEAD Compost
                      we bought this in early july to top dress garden beds before family arrived for the holidays - we usually buy composted manure for the beds but ran out of time. the bags were dry and dead - like bad mulch. we spread them out and hoped that water would help but it didn't. now we have just endured the 3rd wettest july in our city's history and the photos show just what this "compost" looks like in the garden. this is nothing more that ugly, dead mulch that added no nutrients to the garden and will have to be raked up and removed at the end of the summer. this compost doesn't represent the quality usually associated with Miracle Gro, and should not be marketed as compost at all.

                        “Very Good” is misleading
                        I bought about 30 bags as part of a mix to fill three raised bed. This review is based on results after using 20 bags. Pros: It does seem to contain organic matieral to enrich the soil, if you are looking for multi source compost and are unable to buy in bulk it could be a good replacement. Cons: it is loaded with garbage including metal, shredded plastic, hard plastic, and glass. The pictures show how much trash was in 20 bags in an 8 inch bucket. Definitely not an acceptable amount of garbage. It comes very brick like, and you will need to sift through all of it by hand. It definitely has an odor. At the end of the day, I think it got the job done but if I had ANY better alternative I would have chosen something different. I would not recommend to a friend. But, if its your only option and you are willing to put in the work, it will probably do.

                          Comes with free weeds (not a good thing)
                          We purchased this to change the bedding for our red wiggler worms. Then leaves started sprouting out of the compost indoors where the worms are. I also used it outside in my vegetable garden and it now has the same “plants” growing that I didnt plant. Super disappointed the compost has unknown seeds germinating in it and now in my garden.

                            ITS LITERALLY TRASH. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING.
                            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.
