Questions & Answers


Is this good for fruit trees? Thanks.

Asked by Daniel May 6, 2021

While this is a good fertilizer generally, there are better means of giving fruit trees what they need and when they want it. I use Jobe’s Tree Spikes. It too is available at Home Depot. This fertilizer makes the nutrients available to the tree always. No hassle. Easy to use. Follow directions on the packaging. Water when appropriate. Good results!

Can I use this for my herbs and vegetables

Asked by Sam April 27, 2021

Yes, I use it on both vegetables and herbs and have never had an issue.

Asked by Minh March 31, 2021

Hi Minh, I think you should do a little of both. If you think of the expensive coated grass seeds, they are encased in a fertilizer coating which releases nutrients at different rates. The first stimulates the germination and feeds the seeds from the start. Then, the slower release part of the coatings continue to feed as the seeds establish strong rootings. So if you plant and fertilize, you'll be doing the same with this plant food. Then, as the seedlings being to show growth out of the soil, treat them again as they work to establish strong roots. Then, you can lessen your feedings and follow what is recommended in the instructions. Over fertilization is worse than no fertilization.

Is it safe to use this on herbs and chili plants??

Asked by Pistol March 9, 2021

Sure, it will help them grow larger with greater yield - however, please consider that bulking up your soil with large amounts of this stuff is akin to giving large amounts of steroids to an athlete in order to boost their performance. Obviously the point is that you are going to be consuming the vegatables grown in this steroid mix, so conservative usage may be something you want to consider. This is a very large container and a little goes a long way.

Asked by Denise October 23, 2020

Miracle-Gro All Purpose Plant Food is not recommended by the manufacturer for hydroponic feeding, only for outdoor and indoor plants that already have a root system established in soil (which has its own supply of minerals and organic content). There have been users that have supplemented Mircale-Gro with an additional component for use in hydroponics that contains trace minerals and compounds not already present in Miracle-Gro; information on this usage can be found, for example, at this URL: https://thehydroponicsplanet.com/can-you-use-miracle-gro-in-hydroponics/#:~:text=Miracle%2DGro%3A%20Mix%202%20teaspoons,levels%20with%20the%20right%20solution.

Asked by Lin September 9, 2020

There are specific orchid-happy fertilizers for people trying to keep this plant type satisfied. H.D. carries it. Follow directions. It’s a better choice than an all purpose food.

Asked by Wifey August 21, 2020

I haven't given any to our pets yet, but give me a couple weeks and I will let you know.

Works great. No problems.
I love the ease of use. I use a watering can and dissolve the MiracleGro in water per directions. Never had a problem with many years usage. I now grow live oak trees for a living. Shortly after the acorns sprout, I start a diluted solution and feed just a few drops the first time. I gradually increase to recommended dilution and feed a couple of times a week. My Live Oaks from last year are 5 or 6 ft. tall in one growing season. All the text books say they will grow up to 2 ft. per year. Those that have had 2 growing seasons are around 9 ft. tall and very full of branches and leaves. I planted 700+ acorns last fall and they are just now coming up. I plan to start to use MiracleGro on them soon. They will explode. The same is true of my Magnolias and lemons that I grow. I have a few lemon trees that were cuttings 3 growing seasons ago. Last year, in their third growing season they got to be around 4 ft. tall and very full of new branches and leaves. They were covered with lemons two year after they were small cuttings. My Meyer Lemons are huge and weigh the branches down, so I thin them to 10-15 per tree since the trees are so young. These are excellent results, in case you are not familiar with the expected growth of this type of tree. I couldn't be happier with the results. All of the neighbors ask how I could ever grow tomatoes like this. See pics.

My plants looks great!
Miracle grow all purpose plant food has helped so much with helping to keep my plants healthy and vibrant all season long. Before my plants were to me going ok until I saw my neighbors plants and she told me that she uses this brand and that I should definitely try it. So I did! I have been feeding my plants once a week, giving them full sunshine, water and their looks have definitely improved! My neighbor was impressed that I took her advice! If your looking for a great product this one is for you and your plants! You will definitely love the results as much as I do!

Hard soil, loads of mulch, and I use the Miracle grow through out the season. Everything produces in abundance. short season plants last and produce all season long.
This is what to use
I love Miracle Gro. I have used this plant food in a number of settings and it has never let me down. If used in the right amounts at the right time you will be amazed at how your plants can grow. I use this to feed my house plants every couple of weeks and they stay so strong and healthy. I grow a lot of flowers all around the house. I make sure they get fed little bits (using too much causes plant more plant growth and less blooms) of Miracle Gro regularly and they grow so big and are covered in gorgeous blooms. I receive many comments on my flower gardens each year. I use Miracle Gro for my vegetable garden. I start my seeds indoors each year. After the seeds have sprouted and I am sure they have their roots in good, I give them a very little bit of Miracle Gro to help them grow strong right from the start. After planting the young plants outside I give them a few days to acclimate then I give them a good feeding of Miracle Go. This helps them stay strong as they get established. I give them another feeding a couple of weeks later and they grow so big. I am careful not to overfeed as blooming time approaches. Timed right I get big, strong plants that bloom like crazy and produce tons of fruits and veggies. We always have a huge abundance from our garden every year and I know Miracle Gro plant food is a large part of that.
