I have a bougainvillea. Is it better to use Miracle Gro every couple weeks, or a slow-release fertilizer like Milorganite?

Not sure about bougainvillea, but I would think an organic slow release fertilizer would be best. Miracle gro is all chemicals, which can burn your plants, and usually high in nitrogen, which will give you great foliage, but weaker stems and less flowers
