      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Easy to use with excellent results.

      Up until a few years ago my Husband and I were quite keen gardeners, we would be out most weekends weeding, trimming, planting and doing general garden care. Due to the bad summers we have been having we are not as regular in the garden as we used to be but we do like to pot up a few tubs and hanging baskets for a bit of spring/summer colour and keep the Strawberry, Rhubarb and fruit trees in check. One of the garden products we come back to year after year is Miracle Grow All Purpose Soluble Plant Food. I like to buy a 2 x 2kg tubs (£10 each) at the start of spring as this will cover all my plant feeding needs throughout the growing season. Miracle Grow is really simple to use, I like to dissolve one scoop (13.5 grams) in a 5 litre watering can and then I use it to water my baskets, tubs and Strawberry pots every other week from May through to September. I usually need more than one watering can full as I like to give my plants a thorough soaking. When my Husband uses Miracle Grow he likes to use the feeder attachment that you can buy for your hose pipe, I think he feel more manly spraying the baskets and it makes more sense when watering the fruit trees and massive patches of Rhubarb. The feeder attachment is simple to use, you just fill it with the desired amount of Miracle Grow using the measurements on the side of the feeder, click it on to your hose pipe and away you go. The water mixes in with the Miracle Grow and somehow gives a properly mixed dose to the plants while watering, because Miracle Grow stays blue when dissolved in water it is easy to see when the plant food has run out and you are just spraying water. I am more than happy with the results my plants give when I use Miracle Grow, my hanging baskets and tubs have an abundance of flowers that usually last through the summer providing I remember to dead head. The foliage is vibrant and healthy looking. My fruits trees have nice strong leaves and new growth each year and I usually end up with more pears and plums than I know what to do with. My Strawberries give a good crop each year and are exceptionally sweet and my Rhubarb crops well from June till the first frost. I can only give credit to the fortnightly doses of Miracle Grow. The only thing I don't use it on is my Tomato's as I use a Tomato specific food for them. Thank you for reading.

      Miracle Gro really does work!!! It literally doubles plants in size, it was recommended to me by my mother, who usually falls for every advertising line going, so I was sceptical - however for the last 2 summers, my plants have been worthy of Chelsea Flower Show!!! Although it does cost more than maybe own brand products, this works so much better. Definitely would recommend to budding gardeners!!

      Maximum results for minimum cost and effort..

      I came to use Miracle G by accident when i was given it by my friend..I poo pood it as just another gimmick to suck the cash from zealous but dippey gardeners who are easily parted from their cash striving to get the perfect bloom thus one up on their neighbour!!..Until she talked me into doing the half and half experiment with my many pots out the front..What a difference!!!! I Poop you not!!! The treated ones were so much bigger,brighter and healthier!!! I would not of believed it had i not seen it with my own eyes!!! I would recommend it to anyone. And why not have a little fun and not use it in one pot or flower bed so you can see the difference it realy makes!! Next year i am going to be using it both outside and indoors on my house plants. Why shouldn't they be pampered too?? I am even including boxes of it with the house plants i am giving as christmas presents..Lol.. Happy Gardening People...

      A must for any keen gardener

      I used to have a neighbour who swore by Miracle Gro for the plants in his garden. Whereas I just used plain rain water on my plants year after year, he religiously watered his with Miracle Gro every few weeks via the Miracle Gro feeder that you attached to the hose, and by mid-summer, his garden was in full bloom and blossoming whereas my garden was still struggling to produce more than a few buds. A while he was pulling out crops for his table from his vegetable patch, mine was still struggling to produce anything. So the next spring I decided to give this stuff a try. It is basically a multi purpose plant food that looks like a load of blue crystals in a bag, where you often see it in the shops in either a 500 gram or 1 kg (2 x 500 grams) format, although I know some garden centres also do it in larger formats. I bought the 1 kg format for about £3.50. To go with it, I also went out and bought the Miracle Gro feeder. I think it is the old format now where you filled the canister underneath with one sachet of Miracle Gro (it basically holds 500 grams of Miracle Gro) and screwed it back onto the holder. The holder then operates like a watering gun with a selector for either water alone or water plus feeder, and at the front you get a choice of 3 nozzles on a selector - spray, flat spray and jet. The good thing about this feeder is that it is designed to deliver the correct mixture of Miracle Gro and water to you plants. So no more mixing measured quantities into your watering can. Within a few weeks of using Miracle Gro, the results were obvious. My plants were blooming a lot earlier in the season than before, and keeping on a par with the neighbours who were continuing to use the product. Blooms were bigger, overall growth was a lot more vigorous. We also had vegetables from the garden on the table a lot sooner in the season than before. So if you want an impressive garden and some big juicy vegetables that you have grown, I would recommend that you need to get a quality plant food such as this. But equally I would recommend that you should apply it with the Miracle Gro feeder because it will mean a lot less fuss, and make the whole process a whole lot easier.

        Won't be buying it again

        I have used Miracle-Gro plant food for several years and found it satisfactory, however I bought two bagsof Miracle-Gro general purpose compost for the first time a few weeks ago. I was filling a large trough with the fist bag I opened so did not take too much notice of the consistency at first, but soon noticed some sizable pieces of woody material, some were almost two inches long and had a hard plastic surface. Not the sort of material I would put in my own compost bin. The second bag was no better than the first, and this time I was potting on young plants, I could not believe the amount of uncomposted wood I had to sift out to be able to use this stuff. I may have been unlucky and bought some of a bad batch but I won't be taking the chance and buying it again

          Good product!

          ~~*~~*~~ Miracle-Gro Plant Food ~~*~~*~~ Tis with great pride and satisfaction that I announce: this year we grew our own food. Now, I somewhat exaggerate, as in fact we only managed tomatoes, corn and peas but since that's a 100% success rate from seeds I think I'm allowed to blow my own trumpet. You may be forgiven for thinking Big Whoopdy Doo, but in truth, there are many pitfalls to growing your own plants: the first being the hideous weather here in the North West. If it's not raining, it's pissing it down - due to the virtually constant rain and coastal wind, plants have to be hardy to say the least and in our effort to become just a little more self-sufficient and smug, our first purchase was of course a greenhouse. After choosing the items for our growing extravaganza (this mostly involved picking the packets that said "Easy to grow") we also purchased Miracle Gro - HimIndoors was all for buying the rather costly ready-to-use bottles but me, in my ever scrimping and saving mode, chose the 'granules in a box' one. We already had the Miracle Gro Feeder which is a wonderful contraption you attach to your hosepipe allowing you to feed your plants without traipsing back and forth with an extremely heavy watering can (it's like a mini-watering can fastened to your hosepipe through which the water runs cleverly mixing the granules so that the water that runs out onto your plants has the plant food dissolved in it). Thus, using the Miracle Gro granules is a piece cake. The price of flowers Found in all good gardening retailers and pretty much everywhere else, Miracle Gro Plant Food costs about £4 for a box of 500g which apparently should last 40 watering cans - since we use the hosepipe method I can't vouch for this but we just put a great load into the feeder container and let it work its magic (when the water in the container is clear, you've got to add some more) - we've not had to buy another box this year so that's good. Results? Well, as I've already mentioned, the weather sucks. Luckily, the mini-greenhouse meant that our little seeds soon became seedlings without being washed away or swamped. In all, there were only 4 seeds that failed to work - obviously I can't put it down to Miracle Gro but I'm sure there was a higher failure rate when we used to grow cress in an egg at school. Secondly, the seedlings seemed to get large enough to plant in tubs really quickly - not that I've had a lot of experience, but in using the trusty guides on the back of the packets the little plants were ready quicker than they suggested (or maybe I was just ruddy impatient). The real proof is in the pudding (or plants in this case). The Miracle Gro was used from the birth of the plants right through to their consumption. Apparently, you're supposed to use Miracle Gro's vegetable food but we're the kind of people that ignore advice and then whinge when it all goes wrong. However, it appeared to pay off - the tomatoes were the only plant that we actually used the appropriate veggie food on once they were planted out (the mother-in-law donated her tomato feed as her's had been eaten by the squirrels - oh, the exciting lives we lead) but the corn and peas were subjected to a once weekly drink of the magic potion. The first batch of corn went to Gary the Guinea pig as it wasn't ready for picking but once again I'd got impatient, the second went to mother and she said it was lovely, which meant that the third cobs got eaten by us (well, better to be tested by others first). They were very good. The tomatoes were plentiful - they lasted for ages even though Pig tended to help herself when she felt peckish, and they were very good - used for all kinds of cooking, although I think Himindoors got a little sick of them in the end. The peas were alright but then peas are boring anyway. We won't be doing them again. The flowers were excellent - I mean, who'd have though that we could grow real pretty flowers from seeds. I was a very lucky girl as I'd always wanted to grow sunflowers but mother had never let me as she doesn't like yellow. Tis true, but at 33, I finally got my wish and the sunflowers were huge (our's towered over the fence, dwarfing the small child's attempt next door). We grew some little pansy things and something else that began with C which was a trailing thing that had pretty flowers but went everywhere and got on my nerves. We also used the Miracle Gro on the already established plants and bushes lurking in the garden and to be fair the whole ensemble seemed to flourish. The only thing that may have taken offence to the potion was the Clematisesses (there were 3 of them, 'Clemati?', whatever) 2 of which never got going and the third did but died a terrible death at the gob of Pig who for some reason decided that it was a crappy plant and deserved to be massacred - each to their own. Did a Miracle occur? Indeed one would think so. Not since the creation of The Rock Garden of Eden (my own beautiful design that still stands today at my mother's house) has a greater abundance of flora been observed. I may exaggerate somewhat but the mother-in-law liked the garden and most of the plants lasted for a very long time so I guess something helped them when the weather/ dog was trying it's best to destroy them. I will definitely use it again but this time I'll try and remember what was grown. Thanks for reading. Review will most definitely appear elsewhere. Me & Pig Oct 2009 Both a bit sick of tomatoes.

            This stuff really works.

            I don't really have much of a garden as such - I've never planted flowers or anything and limit myself mostly to taking care of the lawn. But I did recently give growing tomatoes a go, and the only way I could get them to ripen was to use miracle gro. I had to grow my tomatoes indoors as it is very cold up where I live. I bought the plants from a charity fundraising event and they were already quite tall when I got them. I put them in the windowsill and hoped for the best, watering them every few days when the soil got dry. Nothing happened. My father happened to come round and he had no idea what to advise me, saying that perhaps the problem was that the plants hadn't been fertilised by bees (we are from the city!). But finally he and I put our heads together and decided that the best thing to do would be to add some kind of plant food to the compost. Perhaps this would be obvious to anyone else but we had never grown anything before in our lives. Luckily, the previous occupant of my house had left some Miracle Gro in the shed and I went and got it. All I did was sprinkle a bit into the water I was giving the tomatoes. I watered them with this mixture each time instead of just plain water and within a week I could tell a big difference. The tomato plants started growing and flowering and finally tiny little green tomatoes appeared on them. Still using Miracle Gro, I watched these tomatoes grow bigger over the next few weeks until finally they ripened. I picked my first red tomato off the vine and bit in - and it tasted terrible!!! Not what I was expecting. It was very mealy and not flavourful at all. I put this down to the fact that they didn't receive good care and I think I overwatered them, and I can't fault the Miracle Gro for this problem, although I'm not entirely sure so if anyone has experience with Miracle Gro making their fruit and veg taste bad I'd like to hear about it. Still, I'm going to give this product the benefit of the doubt as without it I wouldn't have had any tomatoes at all! It really was almost miraculous the way they started growing and maturing as soon as I started using this. Miracle Gro costs around £7 for 2kg in B&Q apparently, although it might be worth checking whether someone has left some in your shed first before you buy it!

            Brilliant plant food would definately recommend

            We moved into our house 2 months ago and with previously living in a flat had no gardening experience. The back garden was over grown and the front one simply a mess!!! So we decided to start by cutting the grass and see what it looked like then. We found that there were flower beds and found another area under the window was sectioned off and filled with gravel. I didn't like this arrangement so I began digging out proper flowerbeds and edging them all. Once I had done this I realised I was in a bit of a palaver as to what to grow in these beds as like I said I had no previous gardening experience. Off I went to B&Q one day to go and buy some plants. I had an idea in my head of the plants I wanted to put in these beds but did know the name so I searched round and found they were fuchsias. There weren't many of these left and the ones that were there were all a bit droopy but I decided that I'd buy them anyway and try to revive them. I thought it would be best to buy some plant food so again with little knowledge picked up some Miracle Grow. After getting home and planting my fuchsias I began to worry as my beds looked rather large for these little plants but I thought I would leave them for a bit before going out and buying more. I began watering them in everyday and using the Miracle Grow every fortnight as the box says and the transformation is amazing. These shrivelled up little plants are now 5times the size and covered in buds/flowers. It's amazing how much they have changed and they have now filled up my bed with no need to get any more plants. I really thought that nothing would revive these plants but Miracle Grow has done it and I would recommend using it to anyone that wants lovely bushy healthy colourful plants.

            A SUMMER ESSENTIAL FOR GARDENERS

            Now that summer is almost here it is time for us amatuer gardeners to get to work. I love spending time in the garden and could quite happily potter around all day (other commitments permitting). Alan Titchmarch I am not and over the years I have tried an assortment of plant foods. Then a friend recommended Miracle Gro. I have never looked back since. Miracle-Gro is a water soluble plant food. It comes in a sealed white plastic bag inside a rectangular yellow and green cardboard box. There is a plastic 15ml measuring spoon inside the box. The plant food is made up of:- Nitrogen for healthy leaves Phosphate for strong roots Potash for more flowers Printed on the box it says miracle grow provides plants with all the essential nutrients required for optimum growth and flowering. I put one level 15ml spoon of food into a standard size watering can with a rose fitting attached and fill with water. The feed disolves easily in the water. I then water my plants and hanging baskets as normal taking care to water the leaves and flowers as well as the soil. It says on the box to use miracle grow every two weeks and for me this is sufficient. I use water for my plants when needed in between feeds. Since starting to use miracle grow my plants have flowered beautifully and I have often been complimented on my display. I have a small flower border and I use miracle grow on this too. Miracle-Gro can be used for containers, hanging baskets, tomatoes, other crops and lawns. One place I do not use miracle-gro is on the lawn. I recommended miracle-gro to my daughter and she was thrilled with the results in her flower beds. My son-in-law was so impressed that he decided to use it on their front lawn. It worked so well that they spent the entire summer mowing the lawn. This product comes in 500g and 1kg boxes. The small box costs around £1.99 and the larger one around £2.99. How long the box lasts obviously depends on the amount of flowers etc. you have in your garden Instead of using a watering can you can buy a miracle-gro feeder. This attaches to your garden hose and feeds the plants as you water. I have never bothered with this so I am not sure of the price. Other products in the miracle-gro range are:- Miracle-gro moisture control compost in a 56 litre bag @ £7.99. Miracle-gro organic peat free compost in a 56 litre bag @ £7.99. This is certainly one product that does exactly what it claims to do.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              When a friend visited during early summer, she couldn’t stop taking photos of my flourishing garden. It’s full of lush greenery, with some plants reaching heights of 6 foot or more. One particular species has done so well that the garden was ablaze with its smiling yellow faces peering up from both shady and sunny spots. Butterflies are kept happy too, thanks to the hardy perennials that grow at the very end of the garden, in the woodland area. The fact that these plants are commonly known as thistles, dandelions and nettles doesn’t matter does it? The truth is, my garden (sorry, that should be ‘our’ garden now) is a 40 x 15 foot plot of clay that’s a soggy mass in wet weather, dramatically changing into a rock-hard, cracked, impenetrable surface during hot spells. Apart from the Field Maple in the corner, nothing desirable grows there. It’s going to take a lot of work to make a proper garden of it, and as much as I dream of thriving shrubs and water features, it won’t be happening this year. What we do have are pots and hanging baskets, and very nice they are too. They make the front of the house appear welcoming and add a fanfare of colourful decoration to the patio at the back. Every year, for as long as I can remember, I’ve had pots and baskets. I’ve no doubt potted up several hundred of them during my time, but never have they shown such a lush abundance of healthy foliage and flowers as they have this year. The baskets appear to be double their original size and some pots are no longer visible under the profusion of blooms. How did this happen? Because I was envious! I saw a friend’s pots and baskets thriving on her balcony and wanted mine to look like hers. Her secret was Miracle-Gro, and I had to have some. She told me that she’d used slow-release plant food, the sort that you push into the soil when potting up and feeds them for 6 months without ever again having to remember to fertilise. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find any so bought Miracle-Gro All Purpose Plant Food instead. It’s fast acting and feeds plants through roots and leaves (that’s the blurb on the box). As it turned out, my friend had got it wrong. She hadn’t used Miracle-Gro at all. She’d used Phostrogen! She found some of the slow release wotsits lying in a drawer and, probably feeling rather guilty about misguiding me, offered them to me. Never having been one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I took them and decided to do a consumer experiment. I’d use Miracle-Gro in one of the front baskets and Phostrogen in the other. Being as they were both planted identically, I figured I’d soon see which of the two is the better product. I stuck the required amount of Phostrogen slow release thingymijigs into one basket, and religiously fed the other with Miracle-Gro every fortnight, as per instructions on the box. Within the first couple of weeks I could already see results. The Miracle-Gro basket had gained momentum and was streets ahead of its counterpart. The foliage was looking stronger and the plants were producing far more buds. Within the next couple of weeks, further differences could be detected. The baskets had bloomed, with the Miracle-Gro basket having far more and bigger blooms. In fact, by this time, I was starting to dislike the lack of uniformity between the two. The idea had been to have matching baskets either side of the front window and, with one being more abundant than the other, the design was starting to look decidedly lopsided. At this point I decided to ditch the experiment and start feeding both with Miracle-Gro and basket No.2 eventually started to catch up with its neighbour. Now, 2 months later, they are almost equal. The original Miracle-Gro basket still looks the better of the two. This is especially noticeable on the fuchsias; those on the second bask et have fewer and slightly smaller flowers. Whether this is just one of those chance things rather than directly related to having started them off with Phostrogen and then switching to Miracle-Gro at a later point is difficult to say. However, that first month definitely showed that Miracle-Gro is the better performer of the two. I also use this product on potted shrubs and perennials as well as annuals, and all but the Hydrangea, which isn’t blooming, seem to be thriving. Maybe the Hydrangea doesn’t like it. The parsley isn’t particularly happy either, but I’ve a feeling that lack of sunshine is the probable cause, rather than it not liking Miracle-Gro. According to The Scotts Company who manufacturer Miracle-Gro, the All Purpose Plant Food can also be used on Roses, Tomatoes, Fruit and Ornamental Trees, Lawns and Berries, as well as shrubs, bedding and container plants. How often and with how much they should be fed varies depending on the type of plant, but once every 14 days with 2 large scoops (found inside the box) added to 10 litres of water is adequate for bedding and container plants. The solution is then added liberally to the soil in the usual manner of watering. As with any liquid fertiliser, Miracle-Gro should only be added to damp soil. If you look after your baskets and pots you’ll have tried to ensure that they don’t dry out anyway, but you know what it’s like, you go away for a couple of days, cross your fingers and return to plants that are looking somewhat under the weather. Don’t be tempted to rush out and fertilise them, even if today’s the scheduled feeding day. Evidently this causes too much of a shock to the plants. Just as you wouldn’t show your neighbour your home-made kinky movies, don’t go shocking your plants either! (Hold on… what’s that….you would show your neighbours…..oh dear, some people!) According to the box, to foliar feed your plants (that’s feeding them through their leaves), use a fine rose with a watering can and apply a light coat of dilute solution to the upper surface of leaves. I tried this and the plants ended up looking rather worse for wear. The “fine” spray from the rose had still been enough to knock down delicate flower heads and leave foliage hanging sadly on the compost. Not good! A fine spray bottle is much better and is what I’ve used since that first effort with the watering can. I used to spray mine once a week, but then my bottle broke and I haven’t done it for about a month. I can see a noticeable difference to the plants though, so I really must get myself a new one. PoundShop here I come! Mr O (you may know him as The Operator), who also shares the garden these days, tells me that you can buy some gadget that you put on the end of your hosepipe that sort of dispenses it. In other words, an applicator. Actually, it’s called a Miracle-Gro Feeder and dispenses the feed in controlled quantities. My expert partner tells me that you put the powder in the reservoir, switch the hose on and it sort of sprays it out and away you go. He also informs me that the most important part of this procedure is after the actual spraying has been completed. You then sit down, open a bottle of beer, and watch. What exactly you’re supposed to watch is unknown to me, but I’m sure he’ll be happy to answer any queries. Miracle-Gro has been on the market since 1951, after Otto Scott, the company’s founder, received complaints from his nursery customers who said that plants weren’t flourishing as well for them as they did in the nursery. His partner, Horace Hagedorn, had been using a secret mixture of nutrients to bring the nursery plants to excellence. Horace convinced his partner that they probably had a marketable stand-alone product on their hands and after running a full-page ad in a New York newspaper, received 22,000 dollars worth of orders! Customers loved it! Other fertilisers were soon to join the original all-purpose feed, including Miracle-Gro Ericaceous Plant Food, Miracle-Gro for Roses, Miracle-Gro for Tomatoes and Miracle-Gro Lawn Food. In 1997, the company acquired Levington Horticulture Ltd here in the UK, giving Scotts a better base for their European market. They haven’t always been “good boys” though, as Scotts have recently been the focus of attention through the production of their potting compost mixture, which contains peat from valuable peat bogs in both England and Ireland. As if that isn’t bad enough, they failed to mention on the packaging that the compost even contained peat. Friends of the Earth campaigned against them, and most major gardening outlets quickly agreed to refrain from selling Miracle-Gro Compost. The same places will usually stock the All Purpose Feed that costs around £3 for a 1kg packet. I’ve so far used about half a kilo on about 20 containers. I’ll definitely be using Miracle-Gro All Purpose Feed again next year. Once you’ve tried it, I’m sure you’ll find it very addictive. Watching your plants flourish is such a pleasure that you’ll find yourself looking forward to fertilising day! Or maybe it’s just me that gets excited about such trivial matters? Who cares! I love it, the plants love it, and even Mr O’s thrilled with the way his Cherry Blossom’s coming along these days. ~~+~~+~~

                As usual, my garden was looking generally miserable. I was sitting at home watching TV when I should have been mowing the lawn. But that must have been the best bit of gardening I ever did, because I saw an advert for Miracle-Gro, and decided to try it out as a last resort! So I went down to my local garden centre where the salesperson recommended it to me, and for the mere sum of three pounds I decided to buy it and give it a go. I followed the simple instructions on the back of the pack which told me to mix a spoonfull of the blue substance with a certain amount of water. So I did as it told me and began to water. I didn't expect an instant result, and continued watering my plants for a month with the mixture. The change I noticed was amazing. My flowers grew and looked healthier than ever. And they began to grow stronger and stronger - I realised this was powerful stuff. So after experimenting on just a few plants, I decided to spread my trial. That was about three months ago, and not everything is looking great and very healthy. Of course, it doesn't do the gardening for you, but it really does help. It comes in a brightly-coloured packet, covered in bright, helthy-looking flowers - very suitable considering the wonders it does to flowers in the garden department! It can also be used as a kind of fertiliser before planting new plants. Just dig your hole, sprinkle it with the powder and then put the plant in. This is a really good idea and gives plants an extra head-start which really works, and it turns out even better if you water them regularly. However, if you have small children, make sure you are careful that they do not get it anywhere near their mouths, as I found out it was toxic at a cost... yes, it can make you ill. Also, it's an idea to avoid sprinkling it on grass, as I foolishly, and rather typically did for about two weeks. My grass began to grow at a very alarming rate, and I had to cut the lawn every two days to avoid it becoming a forest! Anyway, the effect wore off and I ran out of Miracle-Gro. That's another problem - it goes very fast. Anyway, I went to my garden centre to buy some more and noticed some new additions to their range. They now have some great new things like hose attachments to make the process that little bit easier and some other interesting things. I decided to give them a go. They were all good, but just didn't work quite as well as the original powder granuals. So, if your garden is looking rather miserable and needs some brightening up, then I suggest you give this stuff a go - it works wonders and really lives up to its name - it performs miracles!

                  Since it was a great weekend this weekend, I decided to sort my garden out. I went to Do - It - All to buy a few things to get me started. As I was looking around, I came across Miracle Grow. A water soluble plant food with a money back guarantee. For only 2.99, I thought I'd give it ago. Also that day I brought some plants quite cheap, so they wern't in very good shape. I got them home and fed them with my Miracle grow. To my suprise the next day my plants were looking really healthy. Miracle Grow is like Cocane for plants, it gives them such a boost it amazing!. Even for your lawn it works the same. I have yet to try it on my lawn cause of the rain. But as soon as I can, I will be using it on that too!.

                    We have a very big garden with a few flowerbeds surrounding our green lawn; at times some of our plants and shrubs did not look too healthy. We tried several plant foods but none of them seem to help them until we found a product called miracle grow. We followed the instructions on the box and measured the correct amount of powder into a watering can and mixed it with correct amount of water, we watered the whole garden and now you can see the different in all of your plants. Some plants have a specified mixture make sure you read the instructions before use. Now we have bought a no clog feeder to feed the plants with. Miracle grow plant feeder feeds all flowers, all vegetables, roses, trees, salad crops fruits, evergreens, lawns and house plants. The price is around the £4 mark (seen several different prices) and is available at all garden centres and homebase.

                    I went to the garden centre and bought some leylandi conifers, because i wanted a quick hedge. I planted them, and they grew fast, but not as fast as i had anticipated. I saw an advert for miracle grow in a gardening magazine, so i decided to try it on my leylandii. You mix it with water in a watering can, then pour it around the base of the plant. The leylandii grew really well after applying it on a weekly basis. This year i havn't used it on the leylandii, and the growth rate has slowed down. This product is definatly what it says. Miracle Grow.

                    I am certainly no Charlie Dimmock when it comes to gardening....I even had my back garden patioed to avoid this dreaded word "Gardening"!!!!! However getting bored and frustrated every year watching my neighbours pots blooming and looking at mine withering away after a week of planting I decided to seek help in the way of Miracle Grow and I have been totaly amazed at the results I have seen this year. I have amazing fushia baskets which look like they will last until the end of summer, petunias that have outgrown their wall baskets, and the most amazing herbs in my potted herb garden and all because I have taken the time to feed them just once a week with a solution of Miracle Grow! This is the first year that I have had lovely comments from my neighbours on my blooming pots and it is only because of this amazing plant food. Can be bought at most garden centres and can be used on all shrubs, vegetables and bedding plants. I box will last a very long time and not very expensive to buy! Go on give it a try!
