Q1: Can I use other feeds in the Feeder?
A1: The Feeder is designed to use Miracle-Gro® All Purpose Soluble Plant Food, Miracle-Gro® Azalea, Camellia and Rhododendron Soluble Plant Food and Miracle-Gro® Water Soluble Lawn Food.
Q2: What area can I treat with 1 bag of feed?
A2: A bag contains 500g and will feed approx 100 sq.m of garden in 20-30 minutes given good water pressure. With lower pressure it will take longer.
Q3: Why are the crystals blue?
A3: We add a food grade water soluble blue dye to indicate when you need to refill the Miracle-Gro® Feeder.
Q4: Can I use the feeder to apply weedkillers?
A4: We do not recommend that weedkillers be applied using a hose end feeder. Weedkillers must be applied accurately; at the correct dose rate and this would not be possible with these applicators. There is also a risk to other cultivated plant growth in the garden.
Q5: My feeder isn’t emptying?
A5: The Miracle-Gro® Feeder always remains full, it operates with a simple venturi action, where the water passing through the head under pressure, draws up small quantities of the concentrated feed solution from the container. A fine jet of water constantly squirts water into the container to agitate and dissolve the Miracle-Gro® Soluble Food to form a dark blue concentrated solution. When the solution becomes a paler blue, this shows that the feed is running out and needs to be replaced. The jar remains full when in use. To empty the container of water, with the water passing through the head, turn it upside down, the water will drain out of it. Once empty, remove and fill with up to a maximum of 500g, one sachet of Miracle-Gro® Soluble Food.
