Has anyone used Miricle grow organic plant food and compost, or soil conditioner?. Are they worth buying. I know |I hear you all scream but my compost is not ready ha ha



Nice to hear from you again Pauline, yes have used all of those, they are fine, best in a liquid form.

Thanks Doctorbob1. For my raised beds of 3x2 metres how much of the feed compost should I aim to put on each bed?

The plant food will have a measure of how much you need per square metre. Compost, about an inch per square metre. For the liquid feed use the measure included in the pack, add to water, rain water is best. Put in watering can with a coarse rose, water overhead in the evening.

I use Miracle Grow regularly too and get very good results.

Miracle Grow is good stuff - reminds me of plant marmite!!

Thanks everyone. Right I'll be off to Homebase to get some. Plant marmite Pam24 sounds good to me. I've been watching Love your Garden with Alan Titchmarsh and the website that goes with the program recommends it. I didn't know if it was an advertising stunt It seems quite expensive, so I wanted to be certain that it works before I go and buy it
