The big question is “What do you plan on growing?”. Annuals and perennials require different types of soil. Most of the bagged soil I’ve seen holds too much water and needs to be mixed with a sandy soil or perlite to prevent root rot. How much to mix depends on what you want to grow and how much organic matter is in the bagged soil.
