I have been using Miracle-Gro for years now and with lots of success I must add. Today is 10/26/07 and I am still picking Tomato's. This year has been one of my best and my family and I have been enjoying tomatoes since July. It is a very easy to use fertilizer. You simply can add 1 tablespoon per gallon of water to your watering can. You then just apply it about once every 7-14 days. You simply wet the leaves and soak the soil around it. My Dad used this fertilizer every year that I can remember. My Dad and I have grown lots of different vegetables using Miracle-Gro and the results have been really great overall. I also use it on my fruit trees and it works very well with them also. You can also use this fertilizer in the special garden feeder that the same company sells. I have the garden feeder also and it works very well with the Miracle-Gro fertilizer.
