FeRiLiZeR fRiDaY

Thanks to Tootsie
I am trying this every Friday to see what a difference Miracle Grow will make on my flowers. I will keep you posted of their progress(-: This is the second week of the treatment(-: To be fair I am only doing half the yard with Miracle Grow and the other half with a regular all purpose granular fertilizer. I can't wait to see how it does! Usually I just fertilize once a month with the granular type. Usually I buy Wal Mart brand. So this outta be fun to do this little experiment! I hope all of you are having a marvelous day!!! TTFN!!!oh and TGIF!!!

Here are the first Comparison Photos. I will try to take a pictures in the same spot each week so you can see the progress(-: These are daylillies etc.

I've used Miracle Grow for years and couldn't really tell ya if I noticed a difference or not but when I started using their Moisture soil with food in it then I REALLY could tell my flowers loved me for using that. But I've seen some hellacious roses that people told me that was what they watered them with so even though I wasn't observant enough to tell I really do think it works good.

Too bad after all these years of using it I can't spell it! ;-) Miracle-Gro there that's better!

I love this stuff, but mainly use it for my annuals & container.

Gail said...

I rarely fertilize...but this year I am feeding the violas and bulbs. gail

I love the stone edging in that last photo. I don't fertilize with continuity, though I should.

Hi RainGardener,
I can't spell either so don't feel
I have tried the soil too and that stuff really does work! Kinda pricey but if you want to plant some awesome containers it is worth it(-:

Hi Perennialgardener,
My husband has used it for his veggies for years and they are always huge!

Hi Gail,
I never feed my violas or I should I guess. Well I guess they get what I feed the lawn if that counts!

Hi Brenda,
I have those rocks all over my yard. I am a rock hound(-:

Do you hear me spitting? That's how jealous I am of your garden! lol. How beautiful. with or without fertilizer, it rocks!

I'll be anxious to see the results. I use Miracle Grow some, but not every week. Be sure and keep us informed of the progress and if you think it is working!

Jacque said...

That is so funny, I am doing the same thing because of Tootsie's suggestion! I got mine at Costco and started two weeks ago as well, I didn't take pics but will post if I see a big difference. I also like to use ironite in the spring it just makes everything green again!~Jacque

This will be an excellent experiment Cindee. I can't wait to follow along. I use Miracle Grow religiously for my containers and I really believe it does help. I can't tell you about the lawn since that doesn't interest me nearly as much. Good luck and have fun.
