Preparing potting soil for planting a spring garden in elevated garden bed 2\’ off ground?
Can I use store bought potting soil for vegetable garden? What should I add to potting soil to make it ready for planting vegetables this coming spring? I live in southeast Tx.

Often, potting soil from the store is already ready to go right out of the bag, as long as it is a high quality organic mix. Otherwise It may lack things such as dolomitic lime, or beneficial bacteria.
