Miracle Gro is the best soil to use when planting a vegetable or flower garden. The plants thrive in this soil and stay healthy with regular watering. This is the best garden soil I have ever purchased. No junk in it.
I'm an avid gardener and was disappointed in the new all purpose soil. 1st off the new bag (.75 cu ft.) has 25% less then the old bags (1 cu ft.), for the same price. 2nd disappointed in the quality, I always purchased the flower and vegetable soil for all my in ground planting, and the new all purpose does not have the same texture and composition that the old flower & vegetable soil had.

Fantastic stuff! THIS IS NOT A POTTING SOIL! I've used "Scotts turf builder lawnsoil" and a different product from ACE and both were garbage... literally. Pieces of plastic bags, large branch pieces, the tip of one of those flavored cigarettes, you get the idea. Miracle-Gro garden soil was incredible, free of large debri, free of trash. It spread easy and incorporated well into my horrible soil left behind after all the top soil was carted away by the developers. All the plants are doing very well. I'll definitely buy more of this the next time I have to do any planting. Worth every penny!
I usually have been satisfied with Miracle Grow products, and past experience is the reason for selecting their "all purpose garden soil." I did not realize that I could take my chainsaw to a tree, sweep up what was on the ground and call it soil. This stuff was easily 50% wood shards and bark. You have to wear gloves to avoid getting splinters. Maybe in 3-4 years after microbes have had an opportunity to degrade it, it will become soil.
For years we have used Miracle Gro Soil and Potting Soil. We recently bought four bags of the Garden Soil to use as filler for the garden and do some patching elsewhere. I opened two bags and was shocked to see something that looked like dry garbage!! The bags were Full of wood pieces, shavings, sticks, vines and weeds. It didn't look like or feel anything like Soil. Just incredibly dry, useless junk. We taped the bags and will be returning them to our Garden Center for a refund. Looks like I wasn't the only one, their site is full of negative reviews of this product for the same reasons. Too bad we can't post photos.
Miracle-Gro Garden Soil is like all MG products, excellent erxamples of truth in advertising. This product unlike its competitors, is consistent year after year. Results are perfect every time.
