Won’t know til next year…

Just put in to try to give a fall boost for SPRING GROWTH. Some crappy soil needs a boost, so trying to help out a little now, in the MN Fall…

***Still not sure – the grass is very happy where the spike went in the ground – lots of new growth on the pines – and others, but is that becuase of the extremely wet spring thus far in MN?? Didn’t hurt – I know that for sure!

fyi, I used a 2×2 stake and pounded it into the ground to create a hole first, then dropped the spike into that. Otherwise, the spike gets pulverized trying to drive it in by itself, with that silly little plastic cap on it.

Miracle Gro is Good Stuff

I hammered a bunch of these spikes, about a yard apart (follow directions) around a magnolia I’ve got going, in poor, rocky washed out dirt. Won’t know till next year how well they work, but I have been using MG products for over 40yrs, potting soil, everything, and found it to be better than Scott’s or anything else I’ve tried, and I’ve tried a bunch. You can’t go wrong with Miracle Gro.

No need for a professional when you have these spikes.

Easy to install and results seen in 2-3 weeks (with rain). No need for a professional when you have these spikes.

It works – I think…

Got about 5 boxes of this stuff: 2 from Amazon, and the rest from the local Home Depot as they are cheaper. (sometimes it pays to check local store before, not after Amazon…)

Got them in the ground close to the roots of my 60 Green Giant Arborvitae this spring. They grew very well the whole summer (and we had a drought and we didn’t really water them). Also, the grass around the spikes got so denser and greener, I am thinking about grinding this stuff and spread it in my whole yard 🙂

Ah, don’t follow the instructions to get it in the ground: the spike will crack or brake if you hammer it directly (they include a plastic thingamagic but it is pretty useless). Instead use a 1×2 wooden spike, or a pry bar, hammer one of these and then insert the fertilizer spike in the hole. I drew a line on the 1×2 to give me the proper depth, and hammered it in. 60 of these puppies went in without a hitch (other than having to change the wooden spike a couple of times – hey there is so much beating one can take).

The problem is having to buy 5 more boxes in the fall and start it all over again… It never ends…
