My green thumb is decidedly beige-colored. I’ve historically sucked at keeping the garden looking nice, and keeping things that grow in the ground alive at all.

Well, I’ve decided this year that all that is going to change. I’m planning ahead and getting all the things I need for a gorgeous garden now, instead of starting when it’s too late because I forgot. I want berries, damn it! And pretty plants, damn it! So when I saw this deal at Home Depot on Miracle-Gro Garden Soil at almost half off for Memorial Day weekend, it was a sign from above that this would be the year that the garden does, indeed, grow. 

This garden soil promises to improve soil and get plants started off on the right foot — or should I say, root. It may even help you grow bigger annuals, perennials, and vegetables. At $2.50 per bag, I’m giving Miracle-Gro a shot. You'll also currently find this same soil on sale at Lowe's, so take your pick.

Reviewers give the soil a rating of 4.4 out of 5 on Home Depot. One reviewer shares that, after using this soil, their majesty palms grew so large that they couldn’t figure out how to get them inside. Another reviewer says the soil is easy to work with, a bonus for a newbie like myself. One thing to keep in mind: This Miracle-Gro is only for use in-ground; it’s not meant for potted plants. Miracle-Gro makes a separate soil for that, also likely to be on sale this weekend. 

Grabbing this soil while it's on sale is a no-brainer, whether you're an experienced gardener or as hopeless in the yard as I am.
