Great for areas with poor soil


I use this product on tomatoes and peppers. The Arizona soil isn't the richest, and the water where I live is hard. Plants turn yellow in the leaves for need of iron and other nutrients. This food, however, helps my tomatoes and peppers thrive, bloom, and fruit. However, for such a hot climate, and for many of my plants which are in containers, I recommend that the food be used as little as half strength, because I have seen leaf and root burn if it's used too concentrated or fed on the leaves at full strength. This is a good product I have used for many years to help my garden thrive, and the price is worth it.




Arms my tomato plants with natural defenses


I started my vegetable garden late last year. Here in Texas, the heat is our enemy in the garden rather than the cold. Tomato plants need to grow fairly quickly before the summer heat bakes them. Since I started so late, my plants needed extra help to get strong and to start producing quickly. A friend gave me some Miracle-Gro Tomato Plant Food, so I decided to try it. I'm very glad I did. This plant food was just the extra kick my plants needed. The stems of the plants grew strong and thick. Once the flowers appeared, I fertilized them again. I would say that I had tomatoes about earlier than expected. My tomatoes were actually strong enough to withstand mild pest attacks without my intervention. I was so surprised by how well my tomatoes did, that I decided to do an experiment in the fall garden. I have a large garden. In half the garden, I used the Miracle-Gro tomato plant food on all my vegetables. In the other half of the garden, I used regular Miracle-Gro (the control group). I grew the same vegetables in each half. I figured that would be a good 'apples to apples' comparison. At the end of the growing season, the vegetables with the tomato food performed much better than the ones on regular Miracle-Gro. I had my first tomatoes a full 2 weeks before the control group. My cucumbers did so well, I was giving away bags full almost daily. I had some bean plants that were growing up the down spout. They reached the roof! While the plants fertilized with regular Miracle-gro did not fair too poorly (though some just up and died on me), the plants nourished with the Tomato plant food far out-produced the control group. Excellent product.
