Scotts potting mixTip 1: Potted Plants Make for a Memorable Welcome

MIRACLE-GRO® POTTING MIX will help you get your front porch container plants off to a great start. It feeds for up to 6 months and you’ll get more blooms for more color (vs. unfed plants).

“Want to see more beautiful flower blooms and make it easy? The secret is to try Miracle-Gro® Potting Mix (designed for containers) along with regular feeding-watering-sunshine and you can maximize success.” – Phil Dwyer, Scientist at ScottsMiracle-Gro

Tip 2: Save Time! Feed Your Plants While You Water

MIRACLE-GRO® LIQUAFEED® UNIVERSAL FEEDER connects directly to your spigot so you can feed your new and existing plants with any watering device. It takes out the guesswork when feeding by automatically mixing the right amount of nutrients so plant food is applied evenly. Now feeding is as easy as watering, no matter how you water. Grow plants two times as big with LiquaFeed® All Purpose Plant Food (vs. unfed)!

Always read and follow label directions.
