Honestly, I had totally crappy results with Mel's Mix. And I made it to the letter, used high quality mixed composts... it was really disappointing. I will never use it again unless I am living in an area where the soil is absolutely terrible (like the middle of a sandy desert, or an area with more rock than dirt).
I use topsoil (I buy if by the cubic yard and have it delivered) and amend it heavily with compost.
I found Mel's Mix to have incredibly low fertility, my plants never thrived, and I have to use organic fertilizers and tons more compost to get it good enough to support my plants. My topsoil with compost, on the other hand, grew amazing vegetables.
