I was introduced this product by my mother, who is a very experienced and reliable person I ask for gardening advice. She was very pleased with the convenience of this product and she knows I have limited time, however want to maintain my garden. I have now been using the product for some time and find it is not only convenient, but keeps my plants beautiful and healthy as well as any product out there. It is priced right and I recommend it to the true garden experts to the novice, like myself.

Sprayer from last year leaked extensively on my long hose (above the 2nd joint as others have noted), but product seemed to feed okay until bottle 3/4 empty at which point it wouldn't feed anymore. Soaked from the knees down, I switched to my shorter hose (for the areas closer to the faucet) which has longer threading and leaking stopped, but 1st bottle still wouldn't feed anymore. Tried a 2nd bottle from last year, product fed maybe an inch worth then it too stopped. Tried a third bottle (new this year) and it fed about 1/2 the bottle then stopped. Tried shaking, squeezing, tilting sprayer different directions, nothing helped. I have not yet tried squeezing bottle when detached to see if anything comes out. Should be something in the packaging with troubleshooting tips, since not all of us garden with our computers by our sides.

      My desert plants started yellowing in the Las Vegas summer heat. After 2 treatments with the liquafeed kit they are getting their color back and growing faster. This product saved my plants, and is very easy to use.

          I have tried this one and the other type Miracle grow offers and neither of them worked. They just watered and did not mix fertilizer. I returned the other but will keep this one because I like the watering patterns. Don't know if I will try again. Sick of buying products that don't work!

              I can spray for an hour and the bottle never gets any lower. I think I am doing a good job of feeding, then when I look at the bottle nothing looks like it left the bottle.

                fit is a great idea but it leaks. Have purchased 3 and they all leak. We moved the water line so we could but a bucket under it to catch the leaks since it is on my deck.

                    I get more water on me that what comes out the main unit, due to leaking between the main body of the unit and the swivel connector where the hose attaches.

                            Just set the dial to the desired coverage and turn on the valve. For reaching to either small or hard to reach tall plants, this does the trick. Fast to apply and result seen were great.

                                Great starter kit. I just moved on from basic lawn care to trying my hand at a few flowering plants and bushes. I hadn't done much other than watering to help the plants established our yard when we moved in a few years ago, but after a few weeks of using this kit, they look great.

                                    Just attach to your water hose and spray away on plants, gardens, flowers. All of my plants are doing better and so is the garden. Thriving and growing.

                                      The liquid feed it self is amazing...I love Miracle-Gro products. It truly does provide for bigger and stronger plants/blooms. My only problem is with the sprayer. It is made of great quality and is very durable, however the shower option is very bad....it is weak and has too much of a broad diameter. The best feature is the stream option. It is at a great price for it can replace and old sprayer you have. Overall it is an average product but is one of the better options for delivering of Miracle-Gro liquafeed.

                                          works just as well as the powder but MUCH MUCH easier to use! My flower and vegetable gardens didn't start blooming till I used Miracle Gro Liquafeed, now I have blooms and vegetables in excess!

                                          A measuring spoon is included to measure for watering cans to water my houseplants and planters on the porch!

                                                  I had to delay using this product since we have had weeks of heavy rain and flooding in Texas. Now that we have had a few days of dry weather I was excited to finally be able to put it to use. I loved being able to have something to use on my garden that was simple and easy to use. It comes with a stand that holds everything upright and in a convenient place. I'm looking forward to using this again and again!

                                                    After nearly 2 weeks of rain in Texas, and then a couple 90 degree days to begin to dry everything out, we've started the Liquafeed process on our plants. We'll be watering our plants per the suggested feeding schedule and let the results speak for themselves in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.

With the new Liquafeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit, this feeding Sprayer system is the best ever offered. I have had excellent results with the all purpose plant food with larger and more beautiful blooms, greener plants, and the easiest way to feed them ever!!

It makes it nice that you can use other Miracle-Gro products with the same attachment. It is a great way to water all my plants either in the yard or pots. We have some large potted plants so this is great. Makes it so easy to feed all the plants at one time.

I went through two of these units and several bottles and none dispensed the product, just like most of the reviewers here. Someone didn't do their quality research. Great idea, poor follow-through.

First try this season with a new bottle and cannot get it to dispense feed at all. Tried screwing and unscrewing both with water connected and without, squeezing bottle, shaking bottle - nothing. Should not have this trouble with a supposedly easy and convenient accessory. Cannot give it more than 1 star for quality or value if it doesn't work.

When I wanted to use it, it malfunctioned again. My husband took it apart when he heard "rattle" in the sprayer head. He found the spring had disengaged and has not found a way to re-install it. Can you help us. Seems like there is some minor part which we should be able to repair. Can you help us?

If no bubbles are seen loosen or tighten while spraying until bubbles float to top of bottle. One bottle last about 15-20 minutes.
