Is top soil the same as compost?

Topsoil is the layer of humus (partially decomposed organic matter) between the surface and the subsoil. Once upon a time, topsoil was a deep, rich, organic layer. But these two products — compost and topsoil — are not interchangeable. Compost is not topsoil.

Likewise, what is a soil conditioner?

A soil conditioner is a product which is added to soil to improve the soil's physical qualities, usually its fertility (ability to provide nutrition for plants) and sometimes its mechanics. They can make poor soils more usable, and can be used to maintain soils in peak condition.
