    Garden soil is bagged organic matter; it's usually mixed 1:1 with existing soil. The bagged topsoil I see at big box stores seems to have a lot of silt in it...not good for azaleas. I'd use the garden soil according to directions.

    Thanks Walter. That was very informative. I will use garden soil then. Can't wait for the coming weekend.
