    I was jealous of friends vegetable gardens and wanted one of my own but where to put it? In the front of our house! I got free bricks and built my own raised bed with three tiers on a small patch of dirt. Filled it with Miracle Grow and planted. Top row was tomatoes, middle row was herbs and bottom row was lettuce. A few weeks went by and all of a sudden you could practically watch the plants growing in real time! I had never seen a 6 foot tall tomato plant. Not only was it huge but had so much fruit that I made enough pasta sauce to last the winter! My Basil also grew enormously! I was happy I had planted the tomatoes in the back! This year I added more soil but left the lettuce to pots I can store overnight as I had some bandits eating at my organic salad bar!

    I'm not sure what has happened to this product because the wife and I purchased it off last year's reviews. We purchased 14 bags from Lowes to fill our raised garden beds and were taken back with its contents. Soil? Where was the soil? All 14 bags were dirt colored twig and fibrous mulch, not to mention several pieces of plastic we had to pick out. We decided to fill the beds anyway thinking we were just crazy only to find freshly grown mushrooms days later. We have no mushrooms anywhere else in our entire backyard; we only have mushrooms inside the Miracle-Gro Garden "Soil" filled raised garden beds. Its upsetting because we've already planted the tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, cucumbers & canteloupe and they aren't doing very well. About 3 weeks ago we decided to transplant a zucchini in the dirt beside the garden bed as a comparison. The results are staggering! The zucchini leaves in our yard soil are deep green and approximately 3-4 larger. The garden bed zucchini is smaller and has a yellow-green color in contrast. “Grows plants twice as big versus unfed plants.�? Not from our experience with this product, in fact it was the reciprocal effect. We've heard of the good name of Miracle-Gro when growing up so we decided to try it. We want to give the products a second chance but are hesitant with this experience.

      Comments about MIRACLE GRO Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for Flowers & Vegetables (73451300):

      I needed additional soil for my large 100 Gallon containers that I was growing my VEGETABLES in this summer. I thought about getting a shipment of soil from a landscaping firm, but knew I'd end up with left over soil that I'd have no where to store. Then I remembered I've had great benefit from Miracle Grow fertilizers in the past. I went to the store and found this soil. It was easy to apply and mix into the existing soil I already had. It actually made the onions I planted this year grow better. It held moisture very well. The bell pepper plants really love it. So, it gets a great big green thumbs up from me.

            We used the garden soil for the past two years. Last year we planted three butternut squash hills and the resulting plants were amazing! People walked back to our garden to see the squash plants that grew out of our fence and into the neighbors yard and garden. We ended up with 58 butternut squash, and this doesn't include the squash our neighbors enjoyed!

                I used this product for both flowers and vegetables. I added it to my clay soil for the Hellebores as well as the vegetable pots. The Hellebores continue to thrive and I've never had such a bumper crop of Hungarian Wax Peppers as I do this year. I am positive it's because of the Garden Soil used this year.

                  I cannot say enough about the positive difference using Miracle Gro garden soil make in my gardening. It is most times the difference between my plants producing fruit or not. I live in an area with lots of red clay and so it is not always feasible to use the soil in my yard but when I add Miracle Gro, my plants grow so lush and healthy, my veggies produce such healthy fruit and my flowers bloom beautifully. Whenever, I do not use Miracle Gro, it is painfully obvious, and my garden is a shameful sight. The difference between successful gardening and a failure, to me, is a no-brainer - Miracle Gro.

                          Put in established flower gardens after really tough winter, and when installing the annual drip irritation from rain barrels. In two gardens, was top dressing (1/2 to 1 inch atop existing soil & worked into the top with hand tools) with other gardens, used around roots of shrubs & arborvitae and worked into soil between plantings, then top dressing where established plantings were. Had expected quite a die off, but loss only a few tulips - hostas came back huge - leaves were almost twice their previous size & now more sun tolerant (drip irrigation helps with that), day lilies were easily 4.5-5" tall! Also used in brand new vegetable garden: worked into existing soil at rate suggested on bags, but no great response in this garden : vegetables came up as they had done in every other vegetable garden I've ever had. Were perhaps hardier, but that's hard to determine in a new garden.

                              We tried this product a couple of years ago when planting our vegetable garden. We'll never plant again without it. The tomatoes, peppers and cucumber plants get an extra boost when planting. They seem to mature faster and give a better harvest. I would highly recommend this to all vegetable gardeners.

                                      Every year I buy at least 10 bags of Miracle-Gro Garden Soil, for my 500 square foot garden and have never found any kind of trash, rocks or large pieces of mulch. I have always had GREAT success with this garden soil and would highly reccommend it for growing healthy, large producing plants. I grow: tomatoes, cucumbers, okra, green chili's, red & yellow onions, zucchini, yellow crook-neck squash, green beans and sometimes sweet corn.

                                        Purchased two 1.5 cubic feet bags for adding to my garden. The bags were mixed with my soil and then I planted pepper plants and tomato plants. The area where the soil was added did not produce any faster growing plants than other areas where the soil was not placed. I did not achieve any better results with this soil added.

                                                            I have been buying Miracle Grow products since I began gardening several years ago. This year was no different and I purchased several bags of miracle grow soil. I ran out and went back for more and got a huge bag of the Miracle Grow Garden Soil. Everything that I have used the garden soil on is dying. I figured this was some fluke issue that I couldn't identify. The other day I went to repot a plant and opened the remainder of the garden soil and noticed a huge yellow and white blob of stuff. I freaked and then just tried to get whatever it was and fling it in the empty lot next door as I figured it was some weirdo thing... Now I notice little tiny flies all over the house and the garage where the soil is kept. Totally nervous that my plant that was replanted will die. I have had this plant 12 years. I will be heartbroken! Is there a way to kill whatever it is that is flying around house and probably killing all my plants? Pretty Please Advise! I will probably never buy a miracle grow product again. I cannot tolerate seeing that creepy stuff in a bag again. In fact I will be asking my husband to dump the remaining dirt in the lot next door. Hopefully whatever is in it doesn't spread to us. ARGH.

                                                                I built 29 raised beds to garden in this summer. I picked up and hauled over 200 bags of this product labeled 'Garden Soil' to back yard. I am sure I made over 10 purchases to get everything I needed to fill the beds. (No small feat here as I had to negotiate 3 sets of stairs to get to area.) I also bought bales of peat and mushroom compost. This was not my first garden... So, imagine my disappointment (disgust) to discover mulch. No soil whatsoever. No water retention. Nothing to help a poor seed stay moist. I can water it today and need to water again in two hours. Total disaster. Now imagine, paying for the 'premium product' and finding, bark, large roots, some have plastic bits, some smell odd (chemical-gas or oil).... Still, it's Miracle Gro, it has always been good in the past... I have decided this fall I will need to dig it all out and start over with another product! The bottom line is there is no 'soil' in the Garden Soil product. I am so frustrated and disappointed in this product I won't buy or recommend it to anyone. Might even need to Facebook this hot mess.

                                                                  We have been working for 5 years to build up the soil in the garden area and thought we finally could have a garden this year. I bought 20 2cf bags of garden soil to mix in, along with 20 2cf bags of potting mix for our containers. We had our garden area ready to go and weed free. After using the garden soil in it, we have weeds like I can't believe. I can't keep up with them and they are overtaking the plants. And only half or maybe less of the beans and peas planted came up. The tomatoes, cucumbers, melons and squash don't seem affected but these were also not planted by seed, so maybe that is the difference? And the odor from the soil was terrible! We compost and even that doesn't smell as bad as this! I don't know how long it will take to get the garden back so the weeds are controlled again but I am very disappointed with the garden soil. We won't ever buy it again.

While I did not have any issue with my plants growing, they were taken over by a weed that this product introduced to my garden. The weed was only where I used the Miracle Grow Garden Soil. It ruined my garden because if I pulled the weeds it would pull out my plants too. Horrible product that I will never purchase again. I wish I had saved my receipts and packaging. I would have tried to get my money back. However, even a refund would not have reversed the damage done to my garden. I don't know if I will ever get rid of this weed.

I have always trusted Miracle Gro products but after the mess I've experienced this season I won't ever buy it again. I've mixed the garden soil and potting mix to use in large containers and beds. When I opened the bags I noticed a white fungus (?) in some of the bags and the soil was more wood chips than soil. Since the name on the bag said "Miracle-Gro" I decided to go ahead and use the soil. These are the problems I've experienced in my gardens this year: seeds won't sprout or, if they do, don't grow soil is inundated with grubs sprouting mushrooms soil smells sour I live on a very limited budget and rely heavily on my garden to produce fresh vegetables for my family. This kind of failure is absolutely not acceptable and has been a major drain on my pocketbook. I am so disappointed in this product and am embarrassed that I even referred it to friends who are having the same problem.

I took some plants and put them in containers and others into the garden, both groups of plants turned yellow, the leaves curled up and some fell off. The plants where I did not use this soil are growing fine. I have used Miricale grow plant food for years and I like it. This soil stuff is bad! This doesnt work in containers or in the garden.

But imagine my surprise when my plants all either died or were stunted when I used your Miracle Grow Garden Soil last year! Stupid me tries it again this year because I can't believe that its my soil (your product) that's spoiling my every attempt to grow in certain areas. I have actually been testing various strengths of it and low and behold nothing will grow in your stink which incidentally is just what it smells like. What is it really ? 100% cow manure? Ruined my production again this year. Never again Miracle Grow and I'm telling all my gardening friends too. Beware!

This year, as usual picked about 20 bags of 2 cubic feet garden soil for my vegetable garden and mail box area. The soil looked anything but soil but did a mistake of not returning it and used it. Two months later, marigold which should have been beaming with flowers are all dead and my peppers and okra which should have been fruiting are 2-3 inches tall. So there goes my 2014 growing season.. What a waste of money, time, precious water and back breaking garden work!! Looks like I am not the only one... Never again Miracle grow, never again..

Caught it on sale and purchased 50 bags. Have always heard it was good stuff. I had seedlings already started in plain dirt that were ready to be transplanted into raised beds at the beginning of the season. As soon as I planted them in the beds containing this soil they began dyeing. Plants planted in other beds without this soil did well. Couldn't figure it out till I cut a leaf off and looked at it under magnification. SPIDER MITES were infesting every box with this soil in it. Did not want to blame the soil so opened a new bad and check it sure enough the new bag had it inside as well. Every bag was infested. Very disappointed will never buy this product again.

I buy over 60 bags at the start of each spring season. Used to be happy with the quality and the results for my plants. But this year, about 60% of the bags have obvious visible problems -- plastic debris, big chunks of wood, bad smell, clumpy texture, and/or excessive wood chips/bark. You can open two bags purchased on same day and they have nothing in common by physical appearance or texture. I tried screening out the obvious debris and using the remainder of the soil. But my raised beds have suffered as a result. About half of my plants/plots are performing decently and the other half are a dead zone. What has gone wrong with your company's quality control process?

I am hugely disappointed in this Miracle Gro product. The "soil" dries out quickly and is mainly bits and pieces of wood chips and some type of dry fibrous material. Instead of the healthy plants we expected to get after using this soil, the plants look stunted and sickly. Not what we expected from Miracle Gro.

                                                                                            I have used Miracle-Gro products for years and have been very happy. When I needed a little more soil for my vegetable beds, I purchased a few bags of the Garden Soil. The bags were laying in the sun before I opened them and I could smell an odor coming from them. When I opened them up, there was a VERY STRONG odor, kind of like used motor oil. I'm supposed to use this in my vegetable bed? This really scares me. I think Miracle-Gro has lost control of its quality monitoring. I will never buy again!

Now I hesitate to have them help in the garden because every time I dig I find more and more chunks of bright colored plastc and glass... how does that even get in there!>!>!>! what are they doing in the plant that would cause all that stuff to be bagged up and sold as garden soil!!! so very disappointed. I did contact the company, however I'm not sure what their explanation will be...
