Hi John
You might also notice that it says "enough fertilizer to last 4 weeks" on the bag... This isn't nearly enough time to grow anything other than the odd radish or pick and come again lettuce.Smile You would have to fortify it regularly.
The fertilizer is chemical too (unless otherwise stated on the bag) It can be mixed into the soil as a bulking agent though if you are not fussy about organic labeling...
