Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SureLee issue with applicator and dispensing
As a longtime gardener, I've relied on Miracle-Gro products and was thrilled last season to discover the LiquaFeed starter kit. I had no difficulty with the first bottle, but after that each of a 4-pack feed didn't dispense properly. I assumed I had somehow damaged the hose attachment, so I discarded it. At the beginning of this season, I purchased a new starter kit which has NOT worked properly. Is it the applicator or the bottles of liquid plant food? I'm frustrated and hope your "test" department will come up with a solution since this idea is great.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Joni Does not dispense product as indicated
I have tried 3 different bottles thinking that there was a defect in the bottle but at this point, I'm assured that it's not the bottle. The applicator is not dispensing the feed, I have "watered" for an hour straight and the bottle is still 1/2 full (this was repeated 3 times).
Directions state that it covers 400 sq feet/15 minutes of application….
At this point, your design prevents me from diluting the feed with water and applying through my sprinkling can. Not only was it a waste of money but more importantly, a waste of my time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Patty2015 stops dispensing after one season!
I bought this product because the one I had before this one stopped working all together. Wouldn't dispense and knobs to hard to turn. So last year (spring) I bought this one and it worked just fine, knobs and all. I cleaned it up before putting it away for the season and when I got it out this spring; again will not dispense and knob is hard to turn. I've tried every cleaning solution possible and nothing works. This product is useless and I will not waste my money again. I'm done with the product. It's great while it works for ONE SEASON but after that, forget it!

Miracle-Gro LiquaFeed has saved me hundreds of dollars in the past several years. Every plant, every tree, every bush I have is in a terra cotta pot, so they do not benefit from natural nutrients. Except for a few impatiens and cosmos, every plant, tree and shrub not only survives from year to year, they get bigger, better, healthier and more beautiful....year after year.
I have a maidenhair fern that is in my atrium and every spring it resurrects itself and every year it's bigger and more beautiful than the year before. Now, that's some testimonial.
I love this product!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by peg65 love the convience, but...
the button on the "feed, water, off' gets to tight to turn. I have buy a new starter kit every year just because the knob cant be turned to a different setting. I'm done with that, will just use my pliers to turn it. Sick of having to buy a starter kit just because the knob can't be turned by hand.
I love the product otherwise, but very frustrating for me that such a simple thing can mess up the process

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RichH Trigger doesn't turn off nozzle
This fails on the most basic level -- when I release the trigger, the nozzle continues to spray at a reduced (but still significant) rate. To fully turn off the water, I had to turn the top dial mid-way between "water" and "Feed".
When I released the trigger, the rate of flow of the nozzle was strong enough that I finished watering/feeding my plants at this setting. I assume food was being dispensed because the amount in the bottle was reduced, but was it at the appropriate mixing rate?? Who can tell.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sasquach very slow to dispense liquafeed
The liquafeeder is an excellent product, however it takes forever to dispense and i'm wondering if enough fertilizer is being released through the hose to give any benefit to my lawn and plants. A single 16onz. bottle lasts for hours of hosing, this does not seem right ??? Any comment?

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sierraaz Universal feeder connection leaks
I am contacting Miracle Grow to find out what I can do to stop the leaking, but doubt I can. I checked the web site prior to purchase and they claimed it was applicable. Appears to have an anti-syphon valve which is poorly made causing the system to fail. I won't be able to use this product for my drip irrigation system since it will leak which eliminates the necessary pressure for my system to function. Too bad, the idea is fantastic. I will return both systems I purchased. The Anti-syphon valve is the problem and won't work in the application as it is currently designed.
