    Q
    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.
    A

    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.

    Q
    Can I store leftover product in the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder? Didn't use it all with application.
    A

    You did not state what product you are using but generally, you should not store mixed insecticide or herbicide concentrates for longer than 24 hours in the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder or any sprayer. Concentrated products will begin to separate which can cause clogging and will also being to lose efficacy over time. We recommend mixing only what you intend to use and discarding any leftover solution.
