I purchased 3 large bags of Miracle Gro potting soil for 5 new planters. The soil seemed quite dry in all 3 bags but I thought watering it would moisten it before planting. A lot of the water just ran right through but I thought if I kept at it the soil would start absorbing the water. I have planted my flowers and the water is still running through. The top inch is moist but below that level the soil is dry. I am going to have to remove my plants, take out all the soil and start over with a different brand. Expensive and a lot of work. I have been gardening for 50 years and have never had this happen before! So disappointing!
