    Q:My indoor pots do not have drainage is this a good soil to use?
    by|Jun 19, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Miracle-Gro Potting Mix is for use in pots. But, you do want to have a drainage hole in your pots. Drainage holes in pots serve one essential function - they allow excess water to 'drain' out, thus helping to prevent the potting media becoming soggy and causing root rot. Plants will only draw up as much water as they require, and any excess water will either remain in the potting mix or drain away.

      Q:how much soil is needed for 2 ---15" x 15" x 13" deep planting pot
      by|Jun 19, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  For a container that is 15" x 15" with a depth of 13", you will need approximately 43.6 quarts of soil for one container. This measurement is simply for filling the container, it does not account for the root ball(s) of the plant(s) you are putting in the container. This means depending on the size and number of root balls planted you may need a bit less than that 43.6 quarts. So for 2 of those same sized containers, you would need about 87.2 quarts of soil, so 2 of the 50-quart bags of Miracle-Gro Potting Mix will get you what you need with soil to spare.

          Poor quality
          I’ve been a loyal customer buying Miracle grow potting soil for many years. The soil was always fluffy and soft for the plants. This year I got 2 bags of potting soil. To my surprise the soil was mixed with wood chips and rocks. The texture of soil is very gritty, not good for plants. Almost feels like mulch!!!Very dissatisfied and disappointed with my purchase.

          We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Miracle-Gro Potting Mix and appreciate your feedback.

          This is not the quality of product we intend to produce. Every effort is made to screen out debris, such as rocks. It is possible that the screens were damaged and not noticed, allowing some debris into the bagged product.

          Most of our soils, especially potting mixes and garden soils, are made of composted forest products. Composted forest products provide high organic content and nutrients without the concern for soil compaction which often occurs with potting mixes composed primarily of actual topsoil. The coarser material allows for air to reach the roots of the plant which improves plant performance. While small pieces of bark and twigs are intentional components of our growing media, including potting soil, garden soil, lawn soil, topsoil, etc., you should not find large pieces of wood or bark.

          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 reach out to us at 877-220-3089 if we can further assist. miracle-gro

            The soil is perfect and completed my first raised garden bed. As of Friday, May 31, 2024 the vegetables I've planted are looking beautiful and are thriving! Here's hoping for a bumper crop!

            i did not sign for it
            I asked that the delivery would be placed on my porch. The delivery was set down in front of my driveway which is far from the front of my house. I am a senior citizen and am unable to lift that 50 lb bag of soil. If the deliverer had gotten my signature then he would have known i was a senior citizen and was unable to lift the soil. I hope my signature was not forged by the deliverer.

              I used a cheaper potting soil a couple of years ago to save some money and my potted plants didn't do well at all. Ever since then this is the only potting soil I will buy.
