Customer Questions & Answers

directions for using proven winners slow or controlled release fertilizer

I have 8 16-18" hanging baskets how much fertilizer of the proven winner slow/controlled release fertilizer is needed for each basket. Also the same questions for the water-soluble fertilizer. I need to buy what I would use during the 2015 growing season. Sharon

How do I determine how much of the premium water soluble plant food to use in a hose end sprayer?

We use a hose end sprayer when fertilizing our planters. We have several hundred and this is the easiest way to make sure they all get the necessary nutrients. I know that there are specs on the actual sprayer, but it doesn't tell me how to determine the ratio for this product. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Dont, it wastes it. Comes out way to fast. Best to use a five gallon bucket and pour what you need around the plant. Do not pour directly onto the plant, it can burn it up.

I accidentally watered tomato plant with this. Are the tomatoes safe to eat?

Asked by: cjd
Hi cjd, The tomatoes should be safe to eat. As garden vegetables grow, they undergo an intensive process that strips nutrients from the soil. Adding fertilizer keeps soil in optimum shape to feed your garden. Commercial fertilizers are labeled with three numbers that indicate the fertilizer’s nutrient ratio. The first number indicates the percentage of nitrogen (N), the second number shows the percentage of phosphate (the type of phosphorus, P2O5), and the third number represents the percentage of potash (the form of potassium used, K2O). This is what the numbers 24-12-17 fertilizer blend represent. If you have any questions, please call our hotline (734) 654- 7485. Best regards, Fallon

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proven Winner Just like Proven Winners plants their fertilizer helps to nourish your plants during the growing season. Just measure, mix, and feed while you are watering. Your plants will thank you with beautiful flowers and colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASY TO KNOW JUST HOW MUCH TO USE I have a lot of flowering shrubs in pots, along with flowering hanging baskets in the Spring and Summer, which add color and texture to my Southwest rock and gravel landscape. I like this Proven Winners fertilizer because it's easy for me to figure out how much to give each plant. The fertilizer comes in two plastic bags inside the plastic pail, along with a measure. You just add ONE measure (which is equal to a tablespoon) to ONE gallon of water. I swirl it around in my watering can with a stick so the fertilizer mixes thoroughly with the water. The other great thing about the Proven Winners fertilizer is that there is a chart on the side of the pail that tells me about how much mixed fertilizer solution to give my plants, depending on the size of the pot they are in. Even a 5th grader could do this! Finally, I just have to fertilize my flowering plants every one or two weeks to keep them look bright and healthy. Doesn't get any easier than this and totally takes the guesswork out of fertilizing!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good So in my area of South Florida we are finally starting our rainy season when our plants flourish. I had been using the miracle gro liquafeed and honestly saw no benefit. I paired this product up with the round up 2 gallon sprayer. I have been able to easily give the exact one scoop to one gallon ratio and the plants are perking up very quickly. I love that the product is slip into separate bags so if someone gets the product wet you do not lose the entire bucket. The instructions were simple. I have been using the product on everything from fruit to herbs to orchids and the plants are responding well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Fertilizer Tough time of year for flowering plants. Proven Winners are great plants and I expect no less from their fertilizer !! The 24-12-17 formula should get them going in the spring. The handy measuring spoon is perfect to use with a used gallon jug. Being water soluble it is an easy chore to mix and feed your plants. I am using it on my indoor plants this winter and every other time on outdoor plants that are wintering in basement. I highly recommend ALL Proven Winners plants and products !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prover Winner---Just as the name says!!! I have used another brand name fertilizer for years and recently have very disappointed with it so I thought I would give this brand a try. I used it on my newly planted and already established flowers and plants 2 weeks ago and I am very happy to see the lush new growth and blooms on them. My trumpet vine really likes this fertilizer,it has so many blooms on it now! I hope I continue to get the same good results since I am going to start using it on a weekly program as instructed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good stuff For fertilizing potted plants, I have learned that great care is needed. Too-concentrated fertilizer can burn the roots right off a potted plant. This stuff is actually rather concentrated, but readily water soluble and so can be mixed up to any strength you want. That makes it much safer than many other fertilizers. Since it suffuses the entire container, it is also going to be much more effective that those plant spikes, which I am honestly not sure that they do anything at all. Another advantage of this fertilizer is that it is dry and you mix it up with your own tap-water, so you're really getting a whole lot of fertilizer, rather than paying for a whole lot of water. Finally, it also contains trace minerals beyond the usual "N-P-K", like iron, magnesium, sulfur and calcium, which are essential for plant health. Conveniently packed in multiple bags inside the bucket, and comes with a measuring scoop.
