Hi, can you help me. I want to buy soil for my flowerpot and serched the Internet and I found formula for volume of flowerpot and I calculated, it is 3231cm cubic. How much soil should I buy?

3231 cm³ is 3.23 L, so I'd buy a bag that looks about the size of a gallon of milk (3.8 L)

Re: 1 L = ? kg of soil
Now I am really emabarrassed.
In the formula I forgot to put number for height so my question lokked a little bit stupide The volume of flowerpot is about 35L (31539 cm cubic).
That's why I bother so much about kilogramms  it's preety heavy... Thanks anyway

In the US, potting mix has a lot of lightweight material in it and may only weigh 0.4 kg/L (400 kg/m³), while real outdoor soil may weigh from 1000 kg/m³ for good top soil with a lot of organic material to 1600 kg/m³ for sand (both dry). Because moisture makes the density so uncertain, it is usually sold by volume here.

Re: 1 L = ? kg of soil
Thank you one more time. I needed just approximate information about kilogramms, just to know how to organize transport.
About the soil in Serbia I also don't know anything. I know we can buy some soil in supermarkets/ flowermarkets but these are packed in a fabric and have a lot of "manuring" (I hope this word is understandable). So I will buy it at the greenmarkt.
Flowers are not my occupation I just want to decorate my balcony. Thanks again and don't bother anymore about my question.
