I recently setup a raised box garden in my back yard and was looking for compost to fill it with. So I went online to find some reviews on the products that Lowes sells. Lowes carries a lot of compost and soil from Kellogg. Is it any good?
The reviews I found online were NOT GOOD. There were lots of complaints about non-organic stuff in the Kellogg products like N’ Rich, Garden Soil and Raised Bed & Potting Mix. People said they found lots of plastic and nails and bugs in the bag. So I decided to buy a bag of each of theses products and see what I get.
The 3 cubic foot bag of Kellogg All Natural Garden Soil was about $9 and so its pretty cheap. I will show you what’s inside the bag.
Here is a closeup of the contents of the Kellogg Garden Soil bag. It’s finely mulched organic compost material…like tree trimmings and other wood. At least that what I would call it. Nothing but dark, rich, earthy compost.
I think it’s great compost for gardens or for tree soil enhancement or fertilizer. I found no non-organic stuff…no plastic no nails nor anything unacceptable for growing plants. I dumped the entire bag into my raised box garden. I have 2 strawberry pants, 1 tomato plant, 1 green pepper plant and some cucumber plants growing for about a month and they are doing great!
