Using Scotts Earth-Grow Potting Soil for Vegetable seeds

JamesListonJuly 14, 2011

Is it possible to use the Scotts Earth-Gro potting soil to start vegetable seeds? I have tried planting some swiss chard and lettuce using this soil but have not had success so far. There seems to be a lot of bark in this soil. I am just wondering if it is possible to grow vegetables from seeds in it and if it works well for vegetables in general.

Thanks,

James
