Why do commercial bags of garden soil say "Not for use in containers?"
I am only assuming here...but I would think that it means not to use it as potting soil. Therefore...I would only use it IN the garden and not to use it in the pots for your potted plants.
That's all I got. Just common sense. Could be wrong...wouldn't be the first time.
I passed over this question at first.
Since we are in a guessing mode, and that's normal for me, I thot that it had something to do with the fact that this had poop in it, or was not sterilized. It may have something to do with keeping from getting suede.
It took me 20 seconds to find the real answer, so maybe the other two posters should try a little research before they start guessing.
Garden soil is too dense for use in containers, and will not allow the plants to breath and drain properly. In most cases, you will get very sickly, feeble plants, if they survive at all.
Other people asked questions on various topics, and are still waiting for answer. Would be great if you can take a sec and answer them
