That is exactly how I use it when using a watering can on the plants on my porches. Once a month I will mix some Miracle Grow with the water and let the plants have a drink. Some of my plants are over a year or two in the same potting mix and when used right, Miracle Grow is good for them. I've never used it in my vegetable garden where I prefer to use compost tea.digitS' wrote:I use Miracle-gro on ornamentals.
It is a very concentrated fertilizer and must be diluted with water. Buy the hose-end sprayer for it. They make it simple.

Your plants got burned because it was used improperly. Miracle Gro should be dissolved in water. It cannot be sprinkled on the ground. If you apply any fertilizer without thoroughly watering it in, you are asking for burn.OROZCONLECHE wrote:I know most users don't like usijg it as its not Organic and I noticed its damage, I was growing tomatoe plants and a few were dying so I sprinkle a bit of miracle gro by the next day all plants with the miracle gro burned out and the organic ones heal them selfs, I am now a sad person for not knowing how to use it, Does anyone use this product? If you do any tips?
The miracle grow I have used is usually already in a powder and doesn't need to be crushed. I guess I'm a little confused with this statement because how are you to "sprinkle it on top of plants" if it's not already a powder?OROZCONLECHE wrote:Well I got it from a guy and it was just in a ziplog bag, he just told me to sprinkle it ontop of plants but now i should crush it into powder and dilute it with water
