IT'S A MIRACLE

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.
