Answer This Question

A:  Hi 1Smokeaway, This is very different than Miracle-gro. This feeds the soil and should be used with seedlings and transplants then your next feeding (30 days) you should use appropriate fertilizer.

by|Apr 16, 2021

    A:  Thank you for your question. Dr. Earth Root Zone fertilizer feeds up to 2 months.

      Q:Can this be used in a spray feeder attached to a hose?

      Answer This Question

      A:  This is a dry fertilizer it cannot be used in sprayer.

      by|Nov 4, 2017

        A:  no

        by|Oct 9, 2018

          A:  No. It's ground up solids and won't dissolve quickly in water. Mix into the soil by had when planting.

          by|Sep 12, 2018

          A:  That answer is incorrect. Dry fertilizers, in general, can be used with a hose-attached sprayer. For example, this Chapin sprayer can *only* be used with dry fertilizers. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Chapin-Fertilizer-Feeder-Hose-End-Sprayer-G405-G405/301459855 Therefore my question remains, to anyone who might know, whether this Dr. Earth dry fertilizer can also be used like that.

          by|Nov 4, 2017

            A:  It's granular. It may be. You'd have to read the package. Why would you? There are plenty of topical, liquid or powdered fertilizers. This one is specifically for planting and roots. I'd think the granules dissolve slowly as the roots need it. I use other products on the ground surface and leaves of plant.

                  I planted a Little Ragu Sweet Bay Leaf in a 15 gallon nursery pot. This is the second time I used Dr Earth starter fertilizer. It helps develop a strong roots in plants. I will keep buying when I transplant fruit trees,citrus trees and herbs. Overall a wonderful organic plant food to use.

                    I've had great success with the Dr Earth line. They are much better for the health of your soil than chemical fertilizers. Wish Home Depot carried the larger bags.
