Scotts® Associate Emily explains the differences between Garden Soil and Top Soil and demonstrates how they can be used.
How to Use: For planting individual plants. Dig a hole twice as wide as the container/rootball. Blend garden soil with native soil in a 50:50 ratio. For amending beds, apply a 3 inch layer and work into the top 6 inches of the soil. Plant seeds or live plants following specific package or plant tag instructions. Water thoroughly after planting then daily until plants are well established.
When to Apply: Apply when planting flowers, vegetables and herbs outdoors (not in containers), or when preparing soil in outdoor gardens and landscape beds.
How often to apply: Amend in-ground gardens annually mixing 50/50 with existing soil.
Where to Use: Use for in-ground gardens.
