I'm the "flower lady" in my neighborhood

I am repeatedly asked about the flowers in my yard every year. "What do you use to make them grow so well?" My 'secret' is to use Miracle-Gro fertilizer.

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.

      Comments about SCOTTS Miracle Gro Garden Feeder:

      Unfortunately the bowl on mine was loose and wouldn't stay attached to the spreader when in use. Resulted in depositing all my lawn treatment in a heap on the grass. Miracle-gro refused to compensate me for the lost lawn treatment.

              This sprayer stops delivering the powder about half way through and will not deliver the rest. The previous sprayer design was much better. I will stop using Miracle Gro if you cannot make the original sprayer available again.

                  This product is a complete waste of time and money! The container was as blue after 40 minutes of watering as it was at the start, so quite clearly the feed was not being mixed and spread on my plants/lawn. I note that a review from a guy in 2015 bemoans the fact that the model which you attach to a hose (i.e. the one I was using) had been withdrawn. I'm not at all surprised, it's useless. I'm just angry that if it was withdrawn two years ago (presumably because they realised it was not fit for purpose) I was still conned into buying one in 2017!

                      I bought one of these Miracle-Gro Garden Feeders brought it home, hooked it up and it immediately began leaking a spraying water around the handle where you attach the hose, it was leaking at the top of the plastic threaded piece not the bottom so I knew it wasn't because it wasn't tight enough on the hose. I tried taking it off and putting it back on a few times, tightening it, loosening it etc. and nothing worked. Thinking I had just picked a bad apple out of the bunch, and considering I have always had luck with Miracle-Gro Products in the past, I bought another one of these sprayers and tried again. Same Results! As soon as I hooked it up water began spraying everywhere! Not to mention is ruined a whole bag of Miracle Grow! Needless to say I won't be purchasing or recommend this product. As it stands, I'm soaking wet, and my garden is still waiting for fertilizer. Don't purchase this sprayer unless you plan on getting soaking wet!

                          So its not like I have all the time in the world to continue to return poorly produced products. BUT WHEN TWO IN A ROW don't work it's time to comment. Both feeders leaked, nay, sprayed water out between the hose attachment and the body of the sprayer. I took the first one back and just tried the new one and the same problem. Hardly any water is getting to the sprayer and I m soaking wet.. What a joke. I like there concept. JUST WISH IT WOULD WORK.......

                                Hate this new design! I don't care if it switches over to just water, I only need the fertilizer option because that is what I am using it for! It leaks constantly and the on/off handle part stops working so it doesn't shut off. I have tried replacing it multiple times. this was the last.

I tried to put it on again, I checked to make sure there was a gasket, tried again. why on earth did you change the design? the old style ws perfect and lasted for several years. most of the reviews say the same thing, so why not fix it? so discouraging. money does not grow on trees

Read reviews on website. Miracle-Gro you have a problem & you can not just say it"s operator error. I've tried your "solutions" - they do not work. I'm not stupid - If you do not recognize the problem, you cannot resolve it & customers will move on......... Look out Ortho here I come.

                                                        This is an awful product, leaks like a sieve and wastes fertilizer. do not buy. hope they go back to their old design which worked perfectly. I contacted miracle gro, told them I read the reviews of people who got replacements that still didn't work. I asked for my money back. which they agreed to do. Will see if I really get it in the mail. too bad. because I have trusted miracle gro for years. now why buy the fertilizer if I have to use a water can, that's too much work. I will look into other products if they don't fix sprayer. also no instructions for locking mechanism. buttons did not move freely, had to force locking button.

                                                            I had my previous feeder for many years. This new design seems to have the same problem with nearly all the reviews I have read. Leaks out where the factory fitting is placed in feeder. I have tried all suggestions. My water pressure is fine. Duct tape does not help either lol Just please, Miracle grow, go back to the old design. I cannot live without your product :(

                                                                Was very disappointed in this item. Removed the plastic seal on the container. Screwed in on the feeder. Screwed it to the hose and turned on the water. No water would go in the container. Moved the lock/unlock switch back and forth. Still no water would go in the container. Plus water was spraying out of the seam where the green plastic casing meets by above the hose connection. Water is not suppose to come out of there at all. Messed with this item for an hour before we just gave up and went to an old feeder.

Easy for new users to get confused -- do I move it forward (lock) to attach the hose and back (unlock) to detach the hose? My trigger stopped working after one use. It stays on until I turn the water off at the faucet.

The first time I connected it after removing the plastic seal from the jar and checking that the 'O' ring was in, it leaked more water than went through the unit. I wish I had kept the old unit. Do not waste your money on this.

It developed a crack in the tank and started to leak, so I tossed it and bought a new one. Boy, that was a mistake. The new one leaks all over the place and ends up getting very little on the plants where it is intended. Most of the water/fertilizer ends up on me or the ground. Even with the crack, the old one never leaked as much. Now I need to find a better solution.

I use to have the old feeder and it worked like a charm. Finally, it broke after many years of use. I bought a new one and it was leaking, so I brought it back and bought another one. The new one leaks where you connect it to the hose. The solution does not even spray out unless you keep it turned upside down the whole time. I never had to do that with the older model. I am not happy with this new design. I will be bringing it back once again to the store to get my money back.

                                                                                    I'm not familiar with the old products that all the other reviews are talking about as this is my first purchase of this product. I hooked up the feeder and it leaked at the connection but seated and stopped in a minute. Fine. Next, the container did not fill up with water as I expected. When I removed the container with the fertilizer is only had a few drops in it, so I filled it up with water and off I went. No problem. First of all, I had hoped for more, but I have never had a garden feeder that worked like I expected. My biggest complaint in the past with all the other products is that they blow through the fertilizer in about 10 minutes. At first (Other products) the solution of water to fertilizer is super strong and dilutes quickly, so I was reluctant to buy this product. To my surprise the dilution ratio remained consistent throughout the entire feeding which I was pleased with, but yes, if the seal seated right away and it filled up like I expected, I would have raved about it, but we are talking about a plastic pressurized garden feeder and it is what it is. It worked for me.

The new one leaks, has no way to attach a hose on the other end, and it is very difficult tor hold if you have a small hand. Please bring back the old design!

The attachment at the hose leaks, the sprayer tip leaks, half of the solution runs down my pants leg and never makes it to the spray end...

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!

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...
