I will have to admit Im not an avid gardener however this past fall my family and I decided to try and grow some pumpkins for halloween. We headed out to home depot to get some miracle grow to try and boost the growth of the pumpkins. I really fell in love with the shake and pour style because I didnt want to touch the product with my skin. I used it in a manner that wasnt exactly the manufactures suggested amount and much to our suprise we yielded 7 very large and healthy pumpkins. I really enjoyed using this particular product due to the ease of use and the result that we accomplished. I am positive that we will be using it this year to grow more pumpkins to carve during the holliday. I would not eat the pumpkins though because I dont think you can use it on food product but Im not sure. Miracle grow is a company that has name recognition and is trusted by gardeners everywhere. I would definatly recommend this product if you are trying to achieve a huge healty looking garden of flowers or in our case pumpkins!
