Are You An Gardener??

Well, I just love planting in my yard....especially all the pretty annuals that I plant each spring to enjoy looking at until late October. I not only plant in my yard, but I also plant a few pots for my front & back patios as well. I used to use regular potting mix for all the pots, but a few years ago when I was looking around the Garden Department for Miracle Gro I saw that they also make Miracle Gro Potting Mix. The bag read that the mixture feeds plants and prevents weeds.

The following spring I decided that I was going to give the Miracle Gro Potting Mix a try for the season. It is a bit more expensive than regular potting mix, but it also eliminates the need for you to have to feed your annuals all summer long. As this was a major plus for you are supposed to feed your annuals every couple of weeks...and I would always forget too. lol lol This way with the potting mix I could just plant, water daily and watch them grow. I really liked the idea!!

Well, about 5 years later...I am a big-time Miracle Gro Potting mix fan. I even place a little of the mix in each hole of the annuals that I plant around my yard as well!!! I could not believe just how great this potting mix was. My annuals really grew larger with less work!!! My mom was a skeptic of the Miracle Gro mix at first....but after she saw just how well it worked, she too became a huge fan!!!

If you have yet to give it a should. It says it feeds for about 3-4 months, but for me it lasts threw the whole season, as I have never had to Miracle Gro anything I have planted in it. In this past Sunday's newspaper coupon inserts (Redplum) there was a coupon for $2.00 off Miracle Gro Moisture Control Potting mix good at Home Depot.

Have you used Miracle Gro Potting Mix already?? What was your take on it??

We LOVE Miricle Gro!!!!! We also use it on our trees and they look 4 or 5 years older (taller/fuller) than our neighbors.
