REVIEW / HOW TO: Miracle-Gro Water Soluble Plant Food with ORTHO Dial N Spray

I have been using Miracle Gro water soluble Bloom Booster – flower food ( ) and all purpose Plant Food ( ) for over 4 years with my Ortho Dial N Spray hose end sprayer ( ) to fertilize my front and back gardens. I am going to show you how I use it to get great blooms in the spring and healthy plants in the summer.

I typically fertilize my garden in the spring and summer months to promote flower blooms, foliage growth, and fruit produce. I start in spring with Bloom Booster ( ) then follow up in the summer months with All Purpose Plant Food ( ) . Both plant food suggests 1 tablespoon per gallon of water for outdoor plants.

Typically people would use the Miracle Gro Garden Feeder ( ), load up an entire bag of water soluble fertilizer and use it. However since my garden size is different i dont want to use the whole bag of fertilizer.

I prefer using a mixing the water soluble fertilizer into a solution then use the Ortho Dial N Spray ( ) . It can be dialed in to specific quantities of solution per gallon flow rates. I use half a bag in the spray bottle mixed in with 32 0z of water. I mix for about 2-5 minutes until all the fertilizer is dissolved. This about half the potency, so on my Dial N Spray I use one ounce per gallon. Note one ounce is 2 tablespoons. Which makes sense as I need to match the recommended 1 tablespoon per gallon application.

I prefer concentrated water soluble fertilizer ( ) rather than bottles of liquid concentrate fertilizer as they are easier to store, less prone to accidental spilling.

The Dial N Spray ( ) has 3 shower patterns: JET, Shower, and Fan. The jet pattern allows a straight direct stream. The shower is gentle for most plants and situations. The fan pattern is for wide coverage. The grip and trigger of the water hose is comfortable. The bottle is easy to screw on and off. The hose lock ring needs a washer, mine has been working well for 4 years basically used every 1-2 weeks during spring and summer months.

After using the hose end spray, I clean up the spray by rinsing out the bottle with clean water and changing the rate to 8 oz per gallon to rinse out any fertilizer or dye in the system. Then rinse out the housing and let it air dry before storing in my garage. My Dial N Spray ( ) has been used over 4 years and still looks new.

Overall I am happy with the simple use of water soluble fertilizer and the hose end sprayer.
