Keep in mind that Miracle-Gro potting mix is ideal for all kinds of container or potted plants including large products such as this one. It feeds plants for up to 6 months with Miracle-Gro Continuous Release Plant Food.
Miracle-Gro® LiquaFeed® when used as needed makes Fall gardening feeding as easy as Watering and feeds plants through leaves and roots. This works very well for our fall sofa flower bed as mums can be thick from tip to root. This allows each plant to receive the nutritents it needs to thrive.
LiquaFeed can be used with all flowers, vegetables, trees and shrubs. So it is a good buy for multi-purpose use as well.
