Hello

Someone recently gave me a bag of weed and feed. I only have plants in pots, which are not grass. Can I still use the stuff as fertilizer for my plants (sweet potatoes, okra, eggplants, fish mints, and mints)?

Thank you.

I don't think that that is a good idea. Do you want to put weed killing chemicals in the ground where you will eat the produce????🙀

Weed and feed feeds the narrow leafed plants (grass) and kills the broad leafed plants (sweet potatoes, okra, eggplants, fish mints, and mints). Pass it on to someone with a lawn.

Thank you, Bigbill and Daisyl, for your invaluable input. I will give the stuff to someone with a lawn.
