My new Garden Feeder works perfectly. No leaks, easy trigger, multiple spray patterns, and proper application of the Miracle Gro dry food. I had no mess, and I did not have a single drop of leakage. Remember, the water does not have to be blue as it comes out of the feeder for the feeder to be working properly. In fact, if it is coming out blue, then too much fertilizer is being dispensed, which could burn the plant. As I applied the fertilizer, every few minutes I checked the level of the solid blue fertilizer in the container to confirm that it was dropping. I don't know what has caused the leakage problems noted in some of the reviews, nor do I know why some of the reviewers believe the fertilizer is not dispensed correctly. Here are a few things I did that might help prevent problems noted in some of the posts on this site: -- Unscrew the container from the green lid (which attaches to the garden hose), and remove the plastic seal that has kept the Miracle-Gro plant food dry. Seems obvious, but not removing could be a source of the "leakage" noted in some reviews -- "Prime" the container by topping off the container containing the Miracle Gro with water before screwing it back on to the green lid -- Confirm that there is a washer in the green lid's hose connector (there was in mine) , and make sure it is seated properly (it was in mine) -- Screw the container back into the green lid firmly -- Screw the green lid onto the garden hose firmly -- Shake the container periodically while applying. The fertilizer is a solid, and is in a high concentration, so it will precipitate to the bottom of the container. Shaking the container periodically, though not necessarily needed, will assure that the fertilizer is being applied somewhat more consistently. -- Wash out the garden feeder with fresh water after every use. This will help reduce, or avoid, corrosion, which can extend the life of the feeder (Miracle Gro contains “salts�, which can cause some corrosion over the long-term, if the fertilizer is left on parts of the feeder). Instructions from Miracle Gro suggest turning the jar upside down and allowing the sprinkler to continue operating after the water in the jar turn clear. My option: just disconnect the feeder from the hose, unscrew the container, and rinse out both the lid and the container with fresh water.

Quite happy with this feeder to begin with, but it is not designed well and not built to last long. The trigger soon became difficult to operate, as was the trigger lock, and it developed internal leaks. I took it apart and discovered the following: Design Problem #1: Trigger is a lever that pushes up on the internal valve, which requires a great deal of force, yet the fulcrum of the trigger is the two thin plastic axles at the end of the molded part. They cannot bear a whole lot of force and one broke. Cannot be repaired by I discovered that placing a plastic shim under between the end of the trigger and the housing was a good substitute for the axles. Design Problem #2: The trigger lock has a keyed tail attached to it which slides forward under the valve when the trigger is pressed. Unfortunately, the tail is thin plastic and becomes deformed during use, which makes it more and more difficult to slide forward with each use. I was able to gently bend the key back into its original shape but guess that it will quickly return to its deformed shape. Design Problem #3: The valve mechanism is included inside a molded hard plastic assembly which extends through the handle. The hose attaches to the end of the assembly, which means that all of the stress of pulling the hose behind the unit is transferred to the assembly. After the hose end, it necks down to a small shaft which leads to the valve housing. All of the stress flexing is transmitted to the area where the narrow shaft connects. Stress fractures soon appear at both stages of the step-down, which I am guessing are what lead to complaints from others of internal leaking. It cannot be repaired. I like this feeder because of the ease of use, the three spray patterns and the high volume but it is not designed for heavy or prolonged use.

      The old Feeders worked well. I've tried THREE new feeders, with cut-back controls. All three are defective, and water gushes back all over me. On all settings, locked and unlocked. Water does not even go into the container to mix with the fertilizer.

          My mom has had hers for a couple of years and suggested I buy one for my flower beds and garden. I purchased mine last spring and used it for a full season with no problems. I'm already using the same feeder this year and seems to work with no flaws. It feeds around 400 sq ft per jar full. My wife uses it every few weeks to feed and water our flowerbeds. She love not having to measure fertilizer and has no problems with leaks either. Great product for us. I think the other reviews I've read might be user error. If your hose end is out of round I could see it leaking also. Great product!

              I bought 2 of these and within the growing season the water valve / trigger in the handle quit working. This is in distinct contrast to the older design which served faithfully for decades before finally giving up the ghost. Hey guys, how about returning to the original design. Or at least offer a full year warranty and exchange at the retail point of sale.

I don't remember if the darn thing leaked last season, but it must have worked okay since I kept the sprayer for this season. but now it looks like I need to find something else...

                          Have always loved Miracle Grow, and will continue to buy, but his product did not work.The container filled with water (blue) but would not dispense through the hose to the plants. After 15 minutes, nothing gone, container still full. Might be missing a part? Tried several times, and never would dispense the blue water.

                                  This is nothing like the old style that worked and delivered fertilizer. To get anything out of the base and into the water, I have to shake vigorously. Getting rid of it. Useless.

                                      I have had three feeders in the past and loved them but like all things plastic they broke. I purchased this new design and it doesn't do what the others did. I like to use as an in-line feeder to water my gardens. With this design you have to stand there and water individual areas. I have my vegetable and flower gardens all laid out with soaker hoses and was able to put feeder between hose and soaker turn on timer and let it go. Please offer this back I am 75 years old and. Don't want to stand out in the heat for hours watering my gardens.

                                            Like all the other reviews, the bottle leaked profusely. The product clumped in the bottom of the bottle and stained my patio. To top it off, it must have eventually delivered too much fertilizer, because my garden burned up. Fried my squash, pun intended! This was my first garden, so next year I will do it completely different. Such a shame as I have always liked Miracle Grow products.

                                                  Leaks and very irregular strength of fertilizer. Clear to light blue to dark blue to spewing out all over the lawn and burning the roots. I would be ashamed to put my name on this junk.

                                                    Took the plastic cover off of the container and replace it back on the sprayer. Hooked the sprayer to the hose and turned on the water. The water sprayed out between the yellow connector and the green body. The container very slowly filled with water but the water dribbled out the nozzle. Tried to tighten the connection to the hose but it was already tight. The water would not stop exiting between the yellow connector and the body of the sprayer. Tossed the sprayer and mixed the plant food in water and applied by bucket. The blue plant food seems to work good but the sprayer is a waste of money.

                                                        This new dispenser is terrible!! It leaks like crazy. There was more on my feet and sidewalk, than on the plants. I have used Miracle Gro products all of my life, but will Never use this awful thing again. Also, it usually takes at least 2-2/12 packs of Miracle Gro on the flower beds around my pool. I went over them TWICE and there was still product in the sprayer from the first pack. So, in twice the time, my plants still did not get fed properly. And , if they don't come out with a better sprayer, I may move to a different plant food. And I use a lot of Miracle Gro. Very disapointed in this product!

                                                          I bought this as a package with numerous packets of fertilizer. I find it best to throw out the sprayer and mix the fertilizer in a watering can then water the plants.

I can not imagine putting a blue dye in a product that may be used to fertilize plants on a deck or near lawn furniture. SERIOUSLY, what a mess and at this point it will NOT WASH OFF.

I have used this product for many years. The first one I owned lasted years. Since then I have replaced it several times and they have gotten worse each time. I guess as the saying goes, "they just don't make things like they used to" I hate to say it but sorry Miracle-Gro, I am going to have to look for an alternative product.

I purchased one and it leaked so bad it made a mess water just poured out where you connect to your hose so I thought ok its just a bad feeder I purchased so I returned it and got another one and the same thing happened to that one so once again I returned it to the store and I got one more well guess what ??? So after buying three in a row and they all leaked in the same place I was just aggravated by this point. Miracle Grow needs to go back to the drawing board on this one.

Using a watering can is not as convenient but will at least ensure that the product is applied.

First, after connecting the hose and turning on the water, it started leaking, a lot, where the yellow connector joined the handle. After turning it a bit I got it to stop leaking, for the most part. The bowl filled ok but that was all it did. After the bowl filled, all that came out was plain water. After spraying for over 20 minutes the bowl was still filled when it should have been empty. I only hope where I got it will take it back without a receipt.
