Q1: Can I use Miracle-Gro All Purpose Soluble Plant Food crystals straight from the box?

Q5: Can I use Miracle-Gro All Purpose Soluble Plant Food on my vegetables?
A5: Yes, feed every 2 weeks at the recommended rate and wash the vegetables before use. There is no health hazard associated with this type of product, which is a straightforward mixture of plant nutrients.
Q6: Why have the crystals in an open bag of feed gone mushy?
A6: Miracle-Gro is based on soluble salts, which are hygroscopic and must be stored in a well-sealed container in a dry location. If the container is not properly sealed, then moisture can be absorbed from the atmosphere resulting in the product becoming sticky. However, this does not affect the quality of the product, although it may make it slightly more difficult to measure. Damp product can be used as recommended without risk to plants to which it is applied.

A7: The coverage per each pack size is as follows: 500g carton = 40 watering cans (180 litres), 1kg carton = 80 watering cans (360 litres), 2kg tub = 160 watering cans (720 litres).
