    Q:Can this be mixed into a gallon container and stored? Will using the pre-mix over the next 2-3-4 months expire or damage plants?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Ideally, the product should be stored in the original container, or at least have the label with it for directions and analysis of contents. Fertilizers have an indefinite shelf life, whether in dry form or diluted. The diluted product may be stored in the sprayer or other container over winter. Freezing will not damage the food, but the freezing liquid may damage sprayer causing it to leak.

                    Q:can this be used on Bermuda lawn
                    by|May 16, 2022

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  Miracle-Gro Water Soluble All Purpose Plant Food is a straight fertilizer that technically can be used on any grass type. However, plant foods are not the best choice for a lawn because the NPK ratio is not optimized for lawn needs. Also some states, cities, or counties have restrictions on applying phosphorus to the lawn.

                      A:  I don't know, as a matter of fact... However, I have used MiracleGro on everything I have, that's green. From large trees using a garden sprayer, spraying it's leaves, to new little sprouts. As I would think, if you use the garden hose adapter container, which the proper amount as you water your lawn, the green blades of grass will soak up some as you spray as well as that which stays on the blades to dry,. All product that passes down, the roots are going to absorb, and the lawn (& soil) gets watered at the same time. It's a win-win-win, a beautiful thing... And your will be also!

                      A:  Miracle-Gro Water Soluble All Purpose Plant Food is a straight fertilizer that will not harm any turf grasses we do not recommend using plant food on the lawn because the NPK ratio is not optimized to meet nutrient needs of a lawn. Both the Phosphorous and Potassium are too high and the Nitrogen is usually too low.

                        A:  You can, but Miracle Grow also has a “Miracle Grown For Lawns”. I’ve used both for over 35 years with excellent results. Since Miracle Grow’s price hasn’t increased yet, it is more economical than bagged lawn fertilizers.
