                    we had a great time mixing it with compost, so far things are proceeding well. Now need to thin the plants. Time will tell how great this stuff turns out to be.

                      Very happy with this soil and very happy with $3.99 shipping that let me buy in bulk. Wanted potting soil for my new veg trug that did not have fertilizer in it - and unable to locate it in local garden center. Have placed 2 separate $3.99 orders for 40 bags total.

                      It's mud. But good mud.

                      Needed soil to fill veg trug (reviewed elsewhere).

                      4 bags for the trug; one for the other pots on the deck.

                      Perfect. Supporting evidence from a variety of plants that seem to thrive in it.

                      Add to pond if you have hippos to amuse (sorry - it's mud - there just is only so much you can say).

                        Excellent composition - far superior to the container mix from the big box stores. Lightweight.
                        Drains well. I have seen a noticable difference in vegetable growth using this product.
