I switched to Jacks a few years ago and it is now my favorite. However;
I have grown at least a dozen crops with both Peters and Miracle Gro.
I think the problem in using these ferts is that lots of growers over fertilize.
A little of this stuff goes a very long way. I like to feed with each watering.
If growing indoors I use only 1/2 to full teaspoon of powder with 1 gallon of water. Dosage depends on growth rate, lighting, etc. Start off with smaller amount and increase as needed. Watch your plants carefully and you will develop a “6th sense”, in knowing how much to give each plant!

Another problem with these products is not flushing enough before harvest.
I like to use nothing but pure water for the last week or so before harvest. And then I flush with tons of water a couple days before cutting down.
This definitely improves flavor!

Peters Super Blossom Booster 10-50-10
Miracle Gro Bloom Booster 15-30-15
Oh, I forgot to mention, of the two, I prefer the Peters

I can’t believe anyone actually uses MG as a bloom booster. I mean when you think about all the infinitely better stuff that’s so easily available it just doesn’t make sense not to use it. You can drop a couple mothballs in your gas tank and make your car go really fast for a lot cheaper than actually beefing up your motor, and you might not even blow the motor the first or second time you do it. But it’s just a bad idea.

Miracle Gro is fine if you don’t know any better or you don’t care about your plants. The flowers in front of the house, sure, MG is perfect since you’re not gonna be chowing down on them later (I hope). Some bargain basement bloom booster is fine for them because nothing matters there but how it looks.

Seriously. Start two plants and grow them right next to each other under the same light, same conditions, etc. Grow one using MG and one using a real fertilizer. Treat yourself, buy some AN or something. I’ll even push the “fantasy mode” button and pretend that the AN bloom boosters won’t quite obviously make that plant bigger and denser. Just comparing the taste alone. that’s all you have to do.

LOL. I’m as much an AN stockholder as you are a MG stockholder. Though you’re definitely taking this all a lot more personally, so you may well be.

Sure, but fertilizers aren’t pure nitrogen, phosphate, or whatever. They’re made up of chemical compounds that dissolve in water. Different compounds dissolve at different rates. Plus there’s buffers, chelators. there’s more to it than just the NPK. But you knew that, right?

The shear volume of plant physiology and chemistry involved with selecting one ingredient over another is staggering.

It’s very entertaining, I’m sure, to attribute all the people who say MG is crap to some vast corporate conspiracy. There’s probably another corporate conspiracy behind our belief that the Earth is round and the sky is blue.

Or maybe it’s because those things are really true.

Just because a lot of people say something doesn’t make true, but it doesn’t make it false either.

That’s pretty much true, but if your nutrients just plain suck – they don’t have the right stuff, have it in the wrong proportions, or have the wrong stuff added in as well – you’re not going to get as good a product at the end. Yes, I’ve seen some very nice plants grown (at least according to the claims of the grower) with MG stuff. But for every one of those plants I’ve seen at least 50 burned little sticks.

You can probably hit a home run with a hockey stick if you swing at enough pitches. But if you want to hit a home run the only logical tool to pick up is a baseball bat.

If it didn’t work people wouldn’t do it.

I’m not trying to say that hydroponics, AN, or anything else is the only way to grow. All I’m saying is that if you want reliable results you gotta control certain variables. The less you leave to chance the more you can duplicate it time and time again.

As long as we live in a world where you can’t plant this stuff in your backyard in full view we can’t really let Mother Nature do her thing as well as we’d like, which means we’re taking over her job by bringing them indoors or hiding them in spots that maybe aren’t ideal growing conditions. We gotta make up the difference if we want the same quality results.

Yeah, you can smoke wild weed. You can eat a lot of stuff that isn’t cultivated by man.

And stuff grown cheap may very well grow just as potent as what I can grow. I’m no master grower, but I do okay. But if we want to talk about weight per plant or per light, per watt, or whatever other measurement you want to talk about I’d bet that 9 times out of 10 the guy who’s not pinching pennies is gonna be the one with the the most jars of bud curing.

There’ll be anomalies, there always are. Some guy with a bucket of dirt he dug up in the back yard with some bag seed that he pees on is gonna get a pound once in awhile and another guy doing it “right” is gonna get squat. It happens. But as a rule that’s not what we expect to see, and there’s a good reason for that.

Whether you grow in hydro or soil, inside or out, the guys who put the most into it are going to be the guys that get the most out.

I have been comparing miracle grow- Bloom Booster, with jacks classic- blossum booster. I am trying to decide if I can get away with miracle grow (That I…

The 8 Best Fertilizers of 2020

Feed your garden right

Our editors independently research, test, and recommend the best products; you can learn more about our review process here . We may receive commissions on purchases made from our chosen links.

If you’ve ever wondered how bloggers grow such luscious houseplants or how your neighbor keeps their grass so green, chances are their secret is fertilizer. Plants require a variety of nutrients to grow and thrive—including the three “macronutrients” nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, as well as small amounts of micronutrients like calcium—and if they’re not getting these key nutrients from their environment, they may not be able to develop roots, stems, leaves, or flowers.

There are two main types of plant fertilizer you’ll find today: mineral and organic. Mineral fertilizers are chemically processed to supply plants with exact quantities of essential nutrients, while organic fertilizers are made from plant residue, livestock manure, or other natural sources but generally provide less precise amounts of nutrients. Fertilizer also comes in many forms, including granular, liquid, slow-release capsules, and more.

Here, the best fertilizers for your garden’s needs:

Best Overall Fertilizer: Miracle-Gro Water-Soluble All Purpose Plant Food

Miracle-Gro is a well-known and trusted brand among gardeners, and its All Purpose Plant Food is a versatile and wallet-friendly mineral fertilizer that you can use on vegetables, trees, houseplants, and more. All you have to do is dissolve the water-soluble formula as directed and use it to feed your plants every one to two weeks. It instantly provides them with the nutrients they need, resulting in bigger, healthier plants!

Miracle-Gro All Purpose Plant Food is safe for all plants, including vegetables, and it’s guaranteed not to burn them when used according to the directions. It can be applied at any time of day using any kind of watering can, and its NPK ratio (which stands for nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium) is 24-8-16.

Best for Lawns: Scotts Turf Builder 12.6 lb. 5,000 sq. ft. Lawn Fertilizer

It’s hard not to envy your neighbor whose lawn is always thick and luscious, but you can get the same healthy grass with the help of Scotts Turf Builder. Scotts is one of the top brands for lawn fertilizers, and this particular product helps to thicken grass and provide even greening, all while crowding out weeds.

A 12.6-pound bag of Turf Builder can cover up to 5,000 square feet of lawn, and it can be used on all grass types. It provides nutrients to your grass, helping it to grow deep strong roots, which in turn helps to strengthen your lawn against heat and drought. This fertilizer has an NPK ratio of 32-0-4, and it can be applied in any season and lasts for up to six weeks. Just be sure to follow the instructions, as applying too much can burn your grass.

This mineral fertilizer has an NPK ratio of 12-10-5, which is ideal for fruits and vegetables, and it promotes vigorous growth and high yields. It can even help prevent blossom-end rot and splitting!

This slow-release fertilizer needs to be watered after application, and it’s safe to use around other plants, as well. It comes with a money-back guarantee, but chances are you’ll find no need for that, since you’ll be harvesting plenty of tomatoes all summer long!

Best for Gardens: Jack’s Classic All Purpose Water Soluble Plant Food

Go ahead and give your flower beds a boost with Jack’s Classic All Purpose Fertilizer. This top-rated mineral fertilizer can be used on all sorts of indoor and outdoor plants, including foliage plants, evergreens, perennials, bulbs, shrubs, and roses, making it a great all-purpose plant food to keep around the house.

This organic granular fertilizer has a guaranteed analysis of 3-5-3, and it will deliver more abundant flowers when applied to rose bushes at planting and every six weeks thereafter.

This rose fertilizer helps to improve soil conditions and increases root mass, and it also helps your plants resist disease, insects, and drought. Plus, this product delivers visible results, including larger, healthier plants and numerous long-lasting blooms.
