Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AussieLady PERFECT FOR LONG, NARROW GARDEN BED
While I have an in-ground sprinkler system, one zone is a very long, narrow, bed that is up against my back fence and elevated (see photo). Using the in-ground system to water this zone means more water going on the fence than in the garden bed, so I decided to take a different approach with this soaker hose.
I can lay this soaker hose the full length of the narrow, raised bed. It has easy connectors that can be used to block the end of the hose, or connect the garden hose, or connect other soaker hoses to make it longer. The hose releases an adequate amount of water, without wastage. A perfect solution for this zone in my yard.

The Miracle Gro Soaker Pro Advanced 50’ hose works extremely well. Even though this hose is a smaller diameter, it can deliver more than an ample amount of water. Not only will this soaker hose save you time but it will also conserve water.
The hose is pliable and easily maneuvered around your plants, however it is still strong enough to withstand the constant pressure associated with a soaker hose. The hose can easily be cut with a utility knife or household scissors to any desired length. The kit comes with fifty feet of hose, two end caps and two female caps, which allows you the ability to attach it to the hose or directly to the faucet. Finally, the hose packaging has a very helpful chart that can provide you with the proper watering times to achieve the depth at which you want the water to penetrate into the soil.

Works well. Nothing fancy.... Like the barbed to hose end connectors; easier than endless rummaging in hardware plumbing section... Am replacing one that is probably 10 years old and all beat up.
Wish it was clearer what the range of output was likely to be; 1 gallon per minute? 2 gallons per minute at given pressure? My well is tender and I have to be careful not to run it too hard. Directions could be clearer about the simple physics that flow will be lower at the end of a hose run so it might be useful to arrange it in a different configurations depending on your application.

I just got this today and set up 20 feet to water a row of Little Blue Stem grasses I transplanted last week. I could tell right away that this was the system for me. I cut the size hose I needed and pushed on the attachments - one for the spigot and the other to terminate the hose. Then I turned on the water and the hose started to "sweat" immediately the entire length - so much easier than spending hours watering individual plants by moving the hose on a schedule. I can't wait to set up more of this hose this coming weekend. I haven't read all the instructions yet, but I can't imagine I would have to take this hose in for the winter. I hope all I have to do is disconnect it from the spigot and just leave it in place to use next year. If not, it's easy enough and lightweight enough to pick up. I would just have to label which section goes where. Also, with a black hose and black mulch in my flowerbeds, it virtually disappears.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Augieang It broke in half!
On the third time using this hose it snapped in two. My husband was able to take the plug off one end and put it on the broken end. So now I have a much shorter hose and it leaks. Poor quality control! And I can't make a warranty claim because I did not save my receipt. I thought this hose would last longer than 2 waterings! Do not buy this product, not worth the money.

If I could give this zero stars, I would!
Going on the Miracle-Gro name and the 7 year warranty, I picked up one of these at my local big-box retailer for my vegetable garden. I carefully laid it out and hooked it up. Then I turned it on and OH NO - it leaks at the soaker hose side of the hose connection - between the coupler and the plastic connector sleeve protecting the soaker hose. NOT at the hose connection.
Now I have to pull it up, trek back to the store and return it, and go find something that works properly.

This hose leaks so badly at the connection that it can't be used.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jf3men Awesome 50' water hose!
Great miracle-gro soaker Pro advanced 50' in length hose is the perfect hose to water plants, trees or grass over long periods of time to obtain the long watering effect for absolute growth. The soaker pro is both steady and consistent but not overly aggressive to drown plants, and trees or grass. This would be the perfct fit for flower beds both big and small!
