Expert Response

There is no difference between compost and humus.  There are good commercially available sources of compost.  For example, Leafgro,  is composted leaves and grass clippings and is excellent for container gardening.  See the link for retailers such as garden centers, hardware stores, etc. You can buy by the bag or bulk.

Take a look at our Container gardening page for information on growing media and
compost.  http://extension.umd.edu/sites/extension.umd.edu/files/_docs/programs/hgic/GIEI_veggie_pubs/HG%20600...
