Bought some miracle grow and used it on the beds a few days ago. When can I feed again please? The bottle doesn't say.

Is it the stuff you add to water? And you are watering the plants, or the soil? If watering the plants with it added in a watering can, then probably once a week smile

If it is on beds they shouldn't need feeding at all. Feeding is for pots/containers. If your beds have soil in them they should be fine just with the soil.

if the soil is poor or plants hungry (roses for example) then feeding is a good idea. maybe every two weeks or so.

Thank you. I'll use it sparingly then. Most plants are doing well but one or two are struggling so wanted to give a helping hand.

My box of blue miracle gro granules (add to water) says every 2 weeks.
