    good & awkward

    By Patricia on 08/26/2018

    This feeder works good if your plants are below your waist. If you are trying to fertilize high hanging baskets it awkward and heavy.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
Is there an internal tube in the Miracle-Gro Garden feeder jar?

No, there is no internal tube in the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder. There is no need of one with this feeder, as the water gets fed into the feeder and then cycled back out through an internal syphon on the inside of the cap.

Should the Lock be in the Open or Locked position on the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder?

The lock on the trigger of the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder could be used in either position.  Locked would hold the trigger down so you do not have to.

How do you know when to put more feed into the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder bottle?

I've just bought this product and used to 200ml sachet it comes with. I've a medium garden and watered all the beds last night however the water in the bottle is still blue. It's either very efficient or not working. Any advice on how many litres of water I would expect to use before I need to refill.


The Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder is made to be used with water-soluble plant foods, which would be a solid granule concentrate. According to the manufacturer, a 1 lb packet of plant food should make approximately 40 gallons of solution to cover 400 square feet, and it would dispense in 10-12 minutes. The feeder will dispense 4 gallons of solution per minute (about 15 Liters). If you are having trouble using the sprayer you purchased, please contact the retailer from whom you purchased it, or you can reach Scott's directly at 888-270-3714.

Should water coming out of my Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder sprayer be clear or light blue?

The Miracle-Gro Water Soluble All Purpose Plant Food that is included with the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder is a blue crystalline product and even when diluted with water it will have a blue tint, fading in intensity as the product is used up.

I have an older dispenser but it has never been used..

It looks the same as the new one. Just hooked to hose and it leaks between top and container. It has no seal, should it?

Yes, the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder could be leaking because the washer, located under the spray head, may have loosened. Please contact Scott's directly at  888-270-3714 for help with troubleshooting.
