Topsoil is dirt and potting soil isn’t. True potting soil is actually “soil-less.” Topsoil is for planting in the ground. Potting soil is a mixture of peat moss and other organic materials such as composted sawdust. Although Bill is not “Old as Dirt,” he has a lot of gardening experience and some very informative things to say. Each session will be followed by a question-and-answer period.
