Asked May 22, 2013, 3:13 PM EDT

Do you know of a place where I could get free good quality soil for my container garden? Our yard is next to an old stamping plant that was turned over by the DEQ for unsafe chemical levels and I do not want to plant my fruits and vegetables there. Thanks!

Hello and thank you for your question. I do not know of anywhere that has free garden soil. Many local garden centers have excellent garden blends for veggies and fruits. This type of soil is available in bulk, not in bags and is usually priced reasonably. I often bring my own containers or buckets to fill and purchase it that way. Do not purchase top soil for your garden, it will not give you the results you want.
