One part of my gardening area is a somewhat heavy clay. I used this product to help amend the soil, giving it a new life. Following the directions, I worked the majority of the bag of Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for Vegetables and Herbs into the top several inches of the heavy dirt. The result was a nice, loose mixture that could be easily be planted. The soil stayed workable despite the later rains which, in the past, usually formed a hard 'crust' on the surface. Although the large bag could be somewhat heavy for some users, I found the soil inside to be quite friable and the texture was absolutely perfect. Small lumps easily broke apart and I could see the textures of peat moss and other ingredients. Sometimes bagged soils are either too wet and clumpy or too dry and hard-to-moisten. This was neither. Although the directions advocate against using this in a container, I did use a couple scoops of this soil to top off the soil in a pot of ornamentals on my outdoor deck I am picky about the products I use in my garden. I think this product makes a great addition to the Miracle-Gro product lineup. The added fertilizer make this a win-win for the home gardener.

There is absolutely nothing about this product that in any way can be considered "garden soil" unless you count large tree parts, bug larvae, thousands of spider mites, fungus, and gnats as soil. NEWSFLASH: IT ISN'T! I also hope you dont mind the smell of rotting sewage because thats exactly what this stuff smells like. I bought 6 bags of this garbage... 6 bags... and every single one was full of every nasty fungus and bug I do my absolute best to keep out of garden and smelled like death. My yard has been invaded with gnats, spider mites, and fungus - there is absolutely nothing able to control an infestation this large from just 6 bags. Everything I've worked so hard for this season has been destroyed and I'm now faced with burning the whole plot to get rid of it. This was the first time ever buying Miracle Grow Garden Soil and you can bet it's my last for ever using anything Miracle Grow! Do not waste your money on this garbage! I'm not the only person this has happened to either since there are plenty of reviews exactly like this one all over the Internet about MG. Never had a problem with cheap-o garden soil from the dollar store. Never had a problem with ridiculously-expensive and stinky custom blended soil from yard depots (didn't smell half as bad either). This garbage? Worst mistake I ever made!!

    Comments about Miracle Gro Vegetable and Herb 48.9lb Garden Soil (73759430):

    I had purchased miracle gro garden soil and got gnats in all of my plants, and then spread it all through my work plants. Not knowing that it was the soil, I replanted them all and they were even worse the second time! I was looking for ways to get rid of them and found out this is a very common problem with Miracle Gro. Wow thanks for killing my plants and wasting my money and time.

        I used the entire contents of the garden soil for my Tomato patch for this summer. I have six early tomatoes that are just beginning to change from green to red. The plants are 5' tall and very lush green leaves, with a generous amount of tomatoes the size of a hamburger bun. I am very pleased with this product.

                I used this product in my raised garden bed and the plant responded well to this soil. It certainly is a good product to use for vegetables and in my case tomatoes and peppers. Would use again!

                    I could tell as soon as I opened the bag of Miracle Grow garden soil that this was different than the top soil I have been using. The texture and color looked like our Illinois farmers fields. I am testing on container tomato plants. See photo the one on the right is Miracle Grow. Will keep you posted how it goes. So far I am very pleased.

                        Even though the bag says not for use in pots, I decided to try it out in pots since I don't actually have a garden. Keep in mind this may work different for you when used in an actual garden as directed.

                        This soil has been amazing. It absorbs water very quickly, and even when I found that the soil was dried out from not having been watered for a few days my tomato plants were still alive and healthy. The soil has also stayed very loose where as lots of other soils I have used start to pack and harden after only a few weeks in. If you are someone who doesn't do the best job remembering to water, or you are someone who has a hard time watering in time because of your schedule, I would definitely recommend this soil.

                        If you do decide to go against labeling directions and use it in a pot, make sure there is drainage in the bottom. Once the soil can't absorb any more water, you will flood the pot if there is no drainage.

                              This is the first time that I've used this product for vegetable gardening. I've planted some tomatoes in large pots to give it a try. I like that the soil is not so heavy and clumpy that some other soils tend to be. It did not have any large clunks of debris like sticks in it either. My tomatoes are doing great and I would recommend this product.

                                This is essentially top soil with fertilizer all in one so it makes it easier to plant vegetables in good soil without having to add fertilizer. The 1.5 cubic bag is large and not too heavy to carry around and to move around. The instructions and uses of this soil are well explained on the bag. The only negative is that it seems a little pricey for clean topsoil with fertilizer pre mixed but it is convenient and the Miracle Gro name has a very good reputation.

So far the plants in that area are doing great. I hope it continues throughout this summer.

                                        I mixed this soil in a few areas of my garden. Already the carrot seeds are sprouting and the new Raspberry plants look like they might actually produce this season. The soil is very enriched with the nutrients needed. When it comes time to erecting another raised garden bed, I will defiantly use more of this soil than standard store brand dirt.

                                            What I like best about Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for Vegetables and Herbs is that it contains dark rich soil with hardly any foreign materials like sticks or stones. A fertilizer is included in the formulation saving me from the hassle of mixing and watering new plants with fertilizer and saving me the cost of the fertilizer. I'm never sure if I am over or under fertilizing but with this product the correct amount of fertilizer is present in the soil. As to whether the vegetables and herbs will be fertilized for the next three months as claimed remains to be seen. I can say that it has been one week since I planted my vegetables and herbs and they are thriving. Not one has suffered any ill effects from being transplanted.

                                                    Miracle -Gro garden soil is a hyper quality planting soil Great combination of ingredients all balaced to obtain peak performance. Used it to plant lettuce in containers and it made the lettuce plants almost double in size in less than a week I think Scott's has a new winner - not at all like it cheap competitors for the big box stores or homemade mixed

                                                        The Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for Vegetables and Herbs is the best garden soil ever! The texture and moistness of the soil surpassed any I've ever used before. My tomato plants are looking so healthy and strong. This is quite a feat considering we live in the ever-changing weather conditions of Chicago.

                                                          I planted tomatoes and peppers along with this Vegetable garden soil and they seem to have gotten off to a better start than in past years of just planting them in existing soil. A little hard to give final opinion on how they did but they sure do look like the plants are getting a great boost from using this soil. I can't wait to see what the final outcome is. I would recommend that you give this product a try. I works.

                                                              Wife got a flower for Mother's day and the flower was starting to wilt. I replanted the flower in this Garden Soil and after dead heading the flower and replanting, the flower is full of life. Next I will try this soil on a couple of herbs that I need to replant.

I don't plant a lot of vegetables but I do plant a lot of herbs and the POW! that using this product has given to them is amazing. They have taken better, grown faster and bigger. I sort of cheated and use the rest in my flower pots and am pleased to say my flowers have also profited. I am sure that if used in a vegetable garden it would help produce healthier and bigger plants and vegetables. Thank you for letting me try this product.

                                                                            I was very Please with the Miracle Gro Vegetables & Herb Garden Soil. It is Beautiful Black Soil, Plants Started Quickly. I know it is Garden Soil but I also used it in pots and it worked Beautifully. The only small problem I had was it has some sticks and stones in it that I had to remove, but not bad enough for me to not purchase it.

Vegetables planted in this soil seem to be doing better than those planted in regular soil.

NEWSFLASH: IT ISN'T! I also hope you dont mind the smell of rotting sewage because thats exactly what this stuff smells like. I bought 6 bags of this garbage... 6 bags... and every single one was full of every nasty fungus and bug I do my absolute best to keep out of garden and smelled like death. My yard has been invaded with gnats, spider mites, and fungus - there is absolutely nothing able to control an infestation this large from just 6 bags. Everything I've worked so hard for this season has been destroyed and I'm now faced with burning the whole plot to get rid of it. This was the first time ever buying Miracle Grow Garden Soil and you can bet it's my last for ever using anything Miracle Grow! Do not waste your money on this garbage! I'm not the only person this has happened to either since there are plenty of reviews exactly like this one all over the Internet about MG. Never had a problem with cheap-o garden soil from the dollar store. Never had a problem with ridiculously-expensive and stinky custom blended soil from yard depots (didn't smell half as bad either). This garbage? Worst mistake I ever made!!
