I live in zone 6 and new to this whole gardening thing. I am trying to grow some herbs in pots. I just realized I bought gardening soil instead of potting soil....can I use this or do I need to return it and get potting soil?
Thanks in advance

Get potting mix garden soil will say on the package that it is not for potted plants. It is mostly compost that needs to be mixed with soil. Soil does not work well in pots. It contracts and the rootball will form a hard mass that water cannot pass easily through so it will go around and out the drainhole instead especially if you have not been good about watering consistently. It is also a lot heavier than potting mix.
