Why can I not order this product online?

Answers

It appears potting soils and mulch are not available for online ordering due to space issues and demand. I was able to order mulch early in the season for store pick up but then by April I was not able to do so.

Horribly inconsistent product
Vigoro clearly has very little quality control and it turned what I was hoping would be an easy mulch job into a real pain. I'm very well aware that there are different kinds of product labeled as mulch, but getting bags from the same store, off the same pallet with 50% of it being "bark nuggets" and the rest being a shredded mulch, I'd call that inconsistent. It doesn't look even remotely the same and is very noticeable. If you do decide to take the risk, try and check the bags as best you can.

Nothing Premium about it
If you are looking for shredded mulch - don’t buy this because it is chunky large bark. We bought 45 bags & I’m super disappointed with the metal, plastic trash, and huge wood chucks (a few as big as my fist) found in the bags. It’s very chunky looking - never seen such a poor product. Wish I would have turned around and returned it. They were out of Scott’s sadly, and it was a mistake to take this chance.

Lost color in one day.
I started spreading this product yesterday afternoon and it started to rain so I packed it in. I went out this AM to resume and the attached pic demonstrates what happened with this product in just one evening of rain. It ‘was’ suppose to be ‘Black Mulch’. I dropped a handful of the ‘Black Mulch’ fresh out of the bag on top of what was spread yesterday to illustrate the fading in just one overnight rainfall.

mold in mulch
Ive used this brand for three years and this year it is a disaster. Ive never had mold from mulch before and i guess I will have to dig up the entire job and replace with another brand. Phycically this isnt an easy job for me and im disapointed as i had trusted this product in past.

The Vigoro 2 cu. ft. Bagged Black Mulch is rick and colorful right out of the bag. After some time the color will start to fade but that is to be expected due to the sun and weather. I use many bags of this each year as it is easier to move around the yard as opposed to getting a truck load from your local nursery and takes up less room until you get around to using it. I would definitely recommend this especially if you can get it on sale.

Rip Off
I bought 5 bags of the RED mulch and 90% of each bag was brown mulch with a little bit of red mulch sprinkled in!

Contains huge chunks of wood
I’m really disappointed with this mulch. Vigaro should be a reliable brand, but this brown mulch was full of huge chunks of wood

Huge Color inconsistency
I bought this mulch last year and loved it, it had a nice dark brown color and nice texture. I bought another 14 bags again this year of the brown and half was the nice dark brown, the other half was a terrible reddish brown color, it totally messed up the look of the mulch on my beds. Very disappointed.
