Kellogg Soil Mixes

kellogg-web2

I noticed that Home Depot is carrying a number of Kellogg brand soil mixes, so I decided to buy all three and see what the difference is between them.

  1. Raised Bed and Potting Mix – $8.27/2cu.ft. – This mix had 2.5 cups of large wood particles out of 12 cups. Other than that, it is similar to #3 – the Premium Potting Mix.
  2. Garden Soil – This is not Top Soil. At $6.97, it is the cheapest, but is more like a nice mulch, not a soil for planting. it has 4 cups of large wood chips out of 12 cups. It does not contain perlite.
  3. Potting Mix – Premium Mix for Outdoor Containers. This seems like a nice mix for use in a pot or in the garden. Out of 12 cups, it only had 1 cup of large wood chips and perlite. This is my favorite and at $6.47/1.5 cu.Ft., it seems like a good buy.

All three contain tiny amounts of fertilizer, so you will have to add your own fertilizer to these mixes.

    I bought many bags of the raised bed mix over the last 8 months or so adding to/filling my new raised bed garden. I can’t complain. It’s better than some others I bought that were supposed to be high quality and were expensive.
