Title: Miracle-Gro "down the tube"
Post by: greatgardens on July 07, 2019, 08:15:41 am
I'd like to add some MG as a little boost for my tomatoes and eggplants in mid-season.  I presume that others have done this.  Ideally, I'd just add powder without pre-mixing, then fill with water, but I can mix if necessary.  How much for a regular EB?

The standard use is 1 Tbs per gallon of water, but that seems pretty high in an EB.  Maybe 1 Tbs to the whole 3 gallon reservoir? Maybe once every two weeks?

Just like using the calcium nitrate "snack", use 1 tsp down the tube per week. Not as good as the cal nitrate.

Thanks!  I might try both.  I do have some calcium nitrate on hand so I can do a little comparison.

Don't do both in the same EB, one or the other
