The Q&A Archives: container fertilizing

Question: I use Mir Gro pot soil that is supposed to feed x 3 mos.Is is also necessary to use a slow release fert like I read about or is that just double & wasted fert? Also w/ the Mir Gro pot soil is it necess to use the styrofoam moisture retaining crystals? Thanks

Answer: The Miracle Gro soil with time release fertilizer will be all your plants need for an entire growing season. You won't need to feed them again. The potting soil also has good water retention abilities so additional moisture retaining crystals are not necessary. Best wishes with your container garden!
