    I needed this video. I have the potting mix and I thought it was the worse soil to have or use for vegetables.

  2. Doublee on October 10, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Hi, pl clarify which soil to be used if potting mix is not to used for indoor as well as outdoor plants in pots.

    This is the best video I have seen so far!! I had no idea where to start

    Why is my soil bought from stores get crusty 2 days after watering? Water does not penetrate surface. All 3 types do this.
    My plan is to mix sand for next season. What do you think?

  6. Amanda Reaver on October 10, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Can I just buy topsoil and amend it with cow manure Pete moss som organic materials?

  7. luix3141 on October 10, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    You never mentioned if you could use raised bed mix in pots.

    Thanks for the thorough explanation!

    The topsoil I’ve been buying has no sand or clay in it but instead is organic matter. It looks like mulched leaves. Me and a couple neighbors have been experimenting by mixing it in our deficient Florida "soil" simply to add a little moisture retention and compost to the sandy soil we have because it’s really cheap. It definitely improved it. Off course I recommend good soil for gardening. We’re just messing around. Appreciate the video. Looking forward to more .

  11. Ujeb08 on October 10, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    so does the 2 recommended soil mixes (Natures Raised Bed soil, Potting soil) contain manure or other feeding materials, also Vermiculite to compare to Mel’s Mix? or should we amend the mix?

  12. Lalani RhythmChanter on October 10, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    👍

  13. kdelcastillo on October 10, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    I planted in organic bedding soil only in my raised beds without adding anything and my veggies are not growing well and are dying. Do I need to start over and add peat moss and pearlite to the soil? Thanks for your help! 🙂

    Thankyou

  18. Bobby Walden on October 10, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    Should I mix some mushroom compost with potting mix in my containers?

  19. pork cutlet on October 10, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    I put in new raised beds this year and that vargo stuff sucked. all the dirt washed away and it’s nothing but wood chips left. I’m thinking of just going with plain topsoil.

  20. Jenny Potts on October 10, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Thanks 🙏🏾

  21. Sunshine on October 10, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    What is the difference between raised bed soil and container soil?

  22. TxJonathan on October 10, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Thank you so much, I’m looking into getting into gardening and I’m so lost. I watch videos on planting potatoes and they give straight to the process but don’t explain what soil, compost, feed, fertilizer or any of that is. This helped tremendously

  23. Julie Jordan on October 10, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    So am I correct in thinking you could just add a little peat moss to the garden soil and basically make your own raised bed soil mix?

  24. Maria Petrova on October 10, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    This was really helpful — thank you! Subscribed!

    Thank you for your sharing.

  29. Rustin Stardust on October 10, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    But what is the purpose of topsoil? It sounds like nothing could grow in it…

  30. Creachter on October 10, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    What about Miracle Grow?

  31. Urban Gardening with D.A. Hänks on October 10, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Interesting how one of those products openly includes old pallets. Pallets are scrapped for one of two reasons: #1, they’re broken beyond repair. #2, they’re contaminated and cannot be reused. #2 is food for thought, as they could be poisoned with anything from motor oil to mercury, and that is the most common reason for scrapping them (contaminated as opposed to being broken beyond repair). Some of this stuff even contains coal ash! I’m not a fan of the EPA, but this is where they could actually earn my tax dollars.

  32. Connie Humble on October 10, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Enjoy your channel. Very informative and to the point!

  33. Mimi Baker on October 10, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Fast forward 5 years to 2022 and these prices are lol – we’re paying 2-3 times these prices, sometimes more. Holy cow

  34. Proud Unapologetic Hindu on October 10, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    very informative

  35. Adrian Kap on October 10, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Well made & very informative vids. Ty! I bought a few bags of GardenPro TopSoil to fill in some holes & it was at least 50% sand. The bag weighed about 60lbs. I was told It’s probably made regionally with whatever the local area has. For instance if you live near a forested area that’s what you’ll get most of in the soil. I’ll never get that again

  36. KD Johnson on October 10, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    I’ve watched so many vids and I still can’t find the ratio you should use to mix garden soil and compost. I was told I shouldn’t use straight garden soil to create a new flower bed. Do I just add enough to make it lighter??

  37. Misconceptions on October 10, 2022 at 8:06 pm

    I’m not sure what topsoil That is, but my Home Depot topsoil looks like mulch

  38. Alyssa on October 10, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    This is exactly what I needed. Just straight to the point. Thank you.

  39. Ol Bear on October 10, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    Boy this is old a 1 cubic bag is now 5 to 6 dollars. Potting mix is crazy. Used Jungle gro for years. Once a great product . Last 3 bags $ 7.00 for big bag, now 8.00 plus. Changed formula. Sifted about a large baking pan of wood sticks. Hardly any water retaining materials in it. Made in Ft. Myers Florida. Junk mix. Looking for better product. Raise all types of hot peppers. 🐻

  40. Screening Device on October 10, 2022 at 8:10 pm

    It’s such a turn-off to watch a video and the first thing they want you to subscribe before you even start to watch and listen to their video. So the first thing I do is turn it off

  41. Carlos Ibanez on October 10, 2022 at 8:11 pm

    Thank you!

  42. Avgrim77 on October 10, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    It’s $9 for Kellogg PM now. I had to get Vigoro because the Kellogg was on a pallet way too high out of reach and they were about to close. The Vigoro was 8 quarts less and $8.47 so a little more expensive!!

  43. makayla anderson on October 10, 2022 at 8:14 pm

  45. Yenny Jen on October 10, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    So can we fill out raised beds with garden soil and plant right away? If we need to mix peat moss?

  46. TiaTheTaurus on October 10, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    IM A BEGINNER! Thanks😊

  47. daria ayala on October 10, 2022 at 8:24 pm

  49. Cave Man on October 10, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Straight to the point with no fluff talk. Perfect

  50. C Fantastic on October 10, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    I’m planting ginger in a pot. Should I use the potting soil only for the ginger? I’m hoping you would answer this question. Thank you.
