About This Product

Keep your tree hydrated throughout the holiday season with Miracle-Gro for Christmas Trees. This unique formula reduces needle drop compared to water only throughout the season. Simply add 1 capful of the formula to every quart of water you add to your tree throughout the season; be sure to check water level regularly, though, as freshly-cut Christmas trees tend to quickly absorb more water in the first few days of cutting. With the help of Miracle-Gro, make your holiday even more special with a beautiful Christmas Tree.

Highlights

  • Miracle-gro for Christmas trees reduces needle drop throughout the season versus water only
  • Helps keep your tree hydrated throughout the season
  • Simply add 1 capful of miracle-gro for Christmas trees to every quart of water added to your tree stand throughout the holiday season
  • Be sure to check water level regularly as freshly-cut Christmas trees tend to absorb water more frequently in the first few days after cutting
  • Always ensure the bottom 2 in. of the tree trunk is immersed in water

Q:My tree stand two gallons a day for 2 weeks, then a gallon a day for a week, then a half gallon a day for a month. It’s now starting to drop needles and developed a foul smell after New Years (5 weeks). Should I have stopped using the Miracle Gro?

Answer This Question

A:  It is possible, that after an extended period of time, you would need to cut additional 1/2 inch or so from the trunk and prune bottom limbs if need be. The truck has most likely absorbed all it can after that length of time. This product has not been tested for extended use.

    Q:I used the whole 8oz of course I didn’t read the instructions. Will this hurt the Christmas tree

    Answer This Question

    A:  With Miracle-Gro for Christmas Trees, if you have added too much product to the tree stand compared to the amount of water, the solution should be siphoned out of the tree stand and replaced with water containing the appropriate amount of the product.

      Q:If a Cap full every quart? Would a good guess a cap full is a 1/2 ounce? That?s 16 doses (4 gallons) for 8 oz bottle the trees treated water still consumed at the same rate as water only. So every bottle last only 8 days Is this right?

      Answer This Question

      A:  The cap holds 10ml with Miracle Gro For Christmas Trees. For every quart of water your tree stand holds add 1 capful (10ml) of product to the water. Example: If tree stand holds 1 gallon of water (equals 4 quarts) add 4 capfuls (40ml) to the water in your tree stand. How much water used will depend on your tree. Make sure to put a fresh cut on your tree immediately before putting the tree in the stand.

        A:  No, you are only using only 1 cup of water for the tree every day, so you use about 64 ounces water in 1 week, which is 1 gallon of water every week. One bottle will last for about a month.

              A:  It works best if you start using it right away.  Make sure your tree has a fresh cut on the base.

                Tree stayed green much longer
                For the past several years we bought our tree the Saturday after Thanksgiving and it always turned brown before Christmas. This year we used two bottles of miracle gro Christmas tree mix and our tree stayed nice and green for several weeks after Christmas! The pic below is our tree on January 22nd just before I decided to dispose of it. It looked better here than most of our past trees looked on December 22nd. I purchased it from the same grocery store as I do every year.

                  Does not work for Spruce trees!
                  I cut down the tree on cold day when sap wasn't running and the tree was in water within the hour. Needles every where after a week. Disappointed.

                    This product is amazing
                    I never write reviews but this fertilizer is amazing. We cut our tree on December 5th and put it up to decorate on December 6th. From December 6th on I watered the tree twice a day adding 2 tbsps of miracle gro to each litre of water. It is now January 1st and there are new buds sprouting all over the tree and it is still as green as when we first cut it. Miracle gro for Christmas trees takes the worry of your tree drying out away. Thank you

                      The Only Difference This Year
                      I am beside myself. I was so happy we found the perfect tree the day after Thanksgiving. In all the years we bought fresh trees, this is the first year we have this problem of losing so many needles without showing any signs of being dry. We've followed the instructions, adding water every day to the tree early every morning, lunch time, dinner time and evening before going to bed making sure the tree always had water. My husband ran out to buy a second bottle as soon as we got low since we went through the first bottle pretty quickly. We have a large metal stand the tree trunk sits about 6 inches in depth. Lights were placed in the tree 12/5 and we have not turned them on except to install. We have been afraid to turn them on because the needles are falling off. We have yet to put the decorations on. It will be a delicate task. The tree is not brown nor is it dry. It is still drinking water continually. The branches bend without any sign of breaking. We're lucky if we make it to 12/25. Photos taken 12/16. I don't like to write reviews but I wouldn't want this to happen to anyone else. :(

                        Miracle Gro keeps our tree like new and grows new little buds off the branches. Drill a hole in the bottom of the tree stump and pour half or the whole bottle in. Love it!

                          Not sure if this product was the cause of my Douglas Fir 11ft Christmas tree staying green, fresh and little needle falling. Followed instructions as per bottle, buds were still sprouting after 4 weeks being cut.

                          Freshest Christmas Tree Ever!
                          This stuff is incredible! We have never had a tree that lasted this long or dropped basically zero needles. I owe this all to Miracle Gro for Christmas Trees! We’ve had our tree 34 days now and it still is perfect!

                            We used this on a fresh cut tree last year and it grew new pinecones and limbs dures its 2 month stay in our house. I believe results will vary based on the freshness of your tree
