Dear Gardener,

Thanks for contacting us. If you are planning to use containers for your ginger and strawberries almost any good potting mix should work fine. The only caveat would be if there is a high nitrogen fertilizer mixed into the soil, however, that is unlikely with a mix for roses.

When planting in a garden bed, you should avoid using any potting mix since these mixes are light and tend to wash away if not used in pots.
