  1. what is better of growing- potting soil or top soil?
     
  2. you mean for growing.....

    I woudl believe it would depend on the brand if your buying a premixed bag... check the nutrients and such for what they have and buy th best bag with teh most nutrients needed for your plants.... potting soil is generally used for transplants or staerting a plant, the top soil contains your nutrients and as water fluses it drains to the roots giving them their vitamin s.....


    otherwise get a tester kit and mix oyur own soil this is usually the best to do....... check ph and other factors.....

    I'd say potting soil. Topsoil can be undernourished, whereas potting soil has just about what you'll need to get started, besides most topsoils you'll have to sterilize first.
     
  4. Kro...... agreed.....
