I think you can use this with a couple tablespoons per gallon of water. It should tell on the container.

The package of Miracle-Gro should have a little scoop with it. The large end of it is 1 tablespoon. Use 1 tablespoon to 1 gallon of water.

If your watering can only holds 1 quart of water, then you need to use 2 and 1/4 teaspoons of the Miracle-Gro.

You need to mix A LOT of blue powder per gallon of H2O in order to hurt anything... The recommended amount (by volume or weight) is such a small amount that you make a rather weak solution when mixed with a gallon (8.3 lbs) of water. Don't fret if you get it a bit "heavier" than the directions suggest.
