Lowe's does not have the Mel's Mix - Garden Time

Post  sjbutts on 3/21/2013, 12:29 pm

Even though it is listed on their website. It is not available and apparently not available to be ordered. Looks like I will have to drive to Columbia to get it. I am thankful I am just in Charlotte, NC.

you might just want to go ahead and make your own. It's more work, but you might be better off in the long run......

I'm pretty sure it's the same thing. It's "Garden Time Planting Mix", it has Mel's pic on it. We purchased a whole bunch of it.......

At Home Depot Mel's Mix goes by a new name. Look or ask for Square Foot Garden Potting Soil Mix.




You should be able to order from Home Depot directly from here:
http://www.homedepot.com/p/t/203272590?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&keyword=potting+soil&storeId=10051&N=5yc1v&R=203272590#.UUu0_RfqkoN

This should be the product available at Lowes:

They are packaged differently.

Mel's Mix at Lowes?

Post  jhrusky on 3/23/2013, 10:08 am

I cannot find this listed on their website at all.
I also tried to buy what Home Depot has listed, but it's not available anywhere around me ... I need 74 bags -- but I'm not willing to pay an additional $150.00 or more in shipping.
