          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.

            quality of mix
            we have been a loyal advocate of miracle grow products. however just bought 4 bags and was very disappointed. 2 of the bags were so dry and the other 2 had rocks in them. guess that mag the weight of the bags and saved mix might have to change brands.

                The plants really seem to love this soil; the ones I planted using this bag are thriving very well!

                Do not buy!
                This soil is way too acidic for growing anything! We used 1/2 potting soil and 1/2 garden soil as recommended by Miracle Grow for our raised beds and everything turned yellow, pests are abundant and there are pine trees growing in it! We filled another bed with the same 1/2, 1/2 mixture of Jolly Gardener brand, the same vegetables, and that bed is beautiful! I will never buy Miracle Grow again. Buy the cheaper option and save a lot of hard work and heartache!

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

                This product feeds for 1-2 months. We recommend to begin regular feeding with Miracle-Gro plant food thirty days after planting. This product is formulated from (one or more of the following: processed forest products, peat, coir, and/or compost), and sphagnum peat moss, perlite (white granules), fertilizer (yellow balls) and a wetting agent. Outdoor 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.

                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
