wrong bag of dirt by what you posted.
I believe MGOPM has ferts added.

Miracle Gro Organic Choice Potting Mix is the bagged product I use.

MGOCPM (potting mix) contains soil and a large portion of organic material (55-65% by volume). Sphagnum peat moss, composted bark fines, leaves, twigs, wood chips etc. and "pasteurized poultry litter" (cooked chicken crap).
