How to use

Now treating a small lawn with Miracle-Gro® EverGreen® lawn food granules can be quick, easy and accurate. It’s as simple as walking.

  1. Just fill the hopper - off the lawn is best as spills on the patio won’t damage the grass.
  2. Adjust the setting according to the product you are using (see our spreader settings table).
  3. Now walk up and down the lawn at normal speed turning the handle. Go over an area three times for Miracle-Gro® EverGreen® granules.

For best results, cover the lawn area in different directions. This will avoid tramlines between each row.

Where to use

Suitable for small lawns. Always use a spreader for an even and easy application of granular lawn seed and lawn care products.

When to use

Spreaders can be used throughout the year. They can be used for a range of lawn care tasks such as; seeding a new area of the lawn, feeding/fertilising your lawn as well as treating moss and killing weeds. Always read the pack instructions.

Always read the label and product information before use.

Q1: How wide does the Miracle-Gro® Handy Spreader dispense the granules?

A1: The spreader dispenses the granules in a 2 metre arc when turning the handle at the correct speed to apply the product at the advised rate.

Q2: Do I open the hopper (the container which holds the granules) first, then turn the spinner or the other way round?

A2: Start the spinner turning before moving off then open the hopper as you move off up the lawn, this way the granules drop on to the spinning disc and will be dispensed out over the lawn in a 2 metre arc. If the hopper is opened first the granules will fall down in a heap resulting in over application. At the end of each run close the hopper before stopping the spinner.

Q3: The handle is becoming hard to turn, what can I do?

A3: Granules have probably found their way into the gearbox under the spinner. Empty the hopper and soak the spreader in warm soapy water for a few hours to dissolve the granules and then wash it out with clean water. Allow to dry before using again.

Q4: What speed do I walk at to achieve the correct application rate?

A4: We recommend the walking speed of approximately 1.4 metres a second. To gauge your speed push 2 canes into the lawn 10m apart and walk between the 2 canes holding the empty spreader in approximately 7 seconds.
