A: Yes. You can add it to old potting soil.
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.
A: I believe it would work well to rejuvenate your soil-but I am a beginning gardener, so keep that in mind.
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.
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.
A: No idea I live in PA. Maybe a contractor bought it out before it was updated in the system.
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.

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.
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.
