    beautiful flowers This is a fabulous, easy to use product that results in large, healthy flowers. I tried the liquid form and was not nearly as pleased with it because it was much more work to walk around my large yard with the hose and that bulky spray device. With the Shake and Feed, just sprinkle some around everything you want to feed and turn on the water. Of course you must be careful not to over-fertilize plants that might be planted in an already fertilized soil. That’s just common sense.

    Important Note: Contains 20% Sulfur – Increases Soil Acidity I’ve used the Miracle-Gro ‘blue’ powder all purpose fertilizer that you mix with water for over 40 years and it works beautifully. So I thought I’d give this time-release product a try. It is similar to other time-release fertilizer pellets. It contains the expected 10-10-10 fertilizer balance. However, when you look below that on the label you will see that it *also* contains 20% Sulfur (!). Sulfur is what you use to increase the acidity of soil. If you live in an area where the soil is already highly acidic (has pH value of 5 or lower) then you do *not* want to use this stuff as it will increase the acidity of your soil to a very unhealthy level for most plants.I called the Miracle-Gro phone number on the label and confirmed this. They told me this product should “only be used with soil that has a neutral pH” — even though there is no mention of this caution on the label and the label clearly says “All Purpose”.I’ve never seen any other Miracle-Gro fertilizer that had added sulfur to it, much less a whopping 20%. I Don’t really understand why they would do this, since 20% sulfur would rapidly increase the acidity of even neutral pH soil fairly quickly. It’s too bad, I would have liked to use these time-release pellets to save work.

    Good for your plants I have used Shake and feed for many years now without complaint. If you follow the directions and properly spread the shake and feed in the appropriate amounts, you will not have any issues. Like any fertilizer if you put too much you will damage your plants. This lasts for quite a while and helps your flowering plants grow beautifully and healthy.
