There are a lot of different types of potting soil on the market today, so how do you know what supplies to choose or which one to buy. The easiest way that I know is to ask the attendant on the floor that stocks the shelves in your local home improvement store. Ever since we started setting pots inside of our garden several years ago, we have been using this particular Quick Start liquid and have never been disappointed with the outcome. You will still need something to get your plants going, sort of like a kick start, hence the name Quick start from Miracle Gro. I found this in a bottle, in the concentrated liquid form of 48 ounces for only 12.99 at Lowe‘s. I have also seen this on sale at Sam's club. This product is made in the USA in Marysville Ohio.

Description
I have seen this magical stuff come in a 48 ounce size bottles. Each bottle weighs approximately 4.5 pounds. The product inside is in a liquid form and is a blue in color and is in a concentrated liquid form. There is enough of this product in one 48 ounce bottle to make 24 gallons of plant food for your plant needs. You should be able to cover approximately 20 square feet for every 2 gallons of this concentrate. The best benefit of using this liquid is the fact of this being concentrated.


Ingredients
This product is all organic and has ammonium phosphate, potassium phosphate, and urea in this liquid . When you follow the directions properly, this should pose no health risk to humans or pets, or any other wildlife. This also will not hurt the environment. The product has lasted for several years on my garage shelf, and the packaging says that it can last sitting on a shelf up to 3 years, but it has lasted for more than 5 years since I have been using it.

Warning
If you were to get this in your eyes or on your skin, you will need to rinse thoroughly. If you were to get this in your eyes or on your skin it could cause slight irritation. If you happen to swallow any of this do not induce vomiting call the poison control center. This product could cause nausea, and mild vomiting along with mild irritation to the throat, mouth, esophagus and stomach. If you happen to also inhale a substantial amount you will also need to contact poison control center. If this were to be inhaled you could possibly get an upper respiratory tract irritation. The usual route of entry into the body is by swallowing, through the skin, through the nose and eyes. This is also a non-combustible liquid.

If you have to store this for a long period then do it in a cool place and also make sure that you rinse any garden tools that you may have used to transplant your plants. If you happen to grab any tool with the residue on them you could possibly inadvertently get it in places that will irritate you at a later date. 



What should this do for you?
This should do a lot of things for you when you transplant your new flowers or vegetables into an different container or in a garden. This should help your plant grow twice as big when you are using regular black potting soil alone. This also helps prevent transplant shock. This has all of the nutrients mixed together for hearty and very vigorous plants. This also will help your plants whether they are young or old to transform into beautiful and blooming and fruitful vigorous plants. You should also get more brilliant and more flowering buds. As long as you use this as directed there should be no ill effects such as burnout or any harmful results by using this on any freshly seeded yards. This should also help you in the feeding department, you will not have to feed these plants for a length of 7 to 14 days at regular intervals. This plant food is a time continual released plant food, and should work well whether you are using this on flowers, vegetables, roses, shrubs, and trees. There is very little mixing and measuring, all you have to do is mix two ounces, to 2 gallons of water, this does have to be cold water, it can be warm if you prefer. I have used this either way. Make sure that you soak all of the surrounding soil so that the plant will get a good dosing of this solution. It also has a rich and organic materials to help with drainage and better air flow when it rains a lot. Mostly, this can be when transplanting all types of flowers.


Experience
There is only a few things that you should know when using this Quick start liquid. As I soon found out, no matter what size pot that you choose for your needs, you will need to pick one that has a hole in the bottom to make sure that your plant does not drown from setting water. Once you have chosen one that you want, fill the pot or your garden with about 1/3 of the way with fresh potting soil. This will help in stimulating the roots and get them going in the right direction. This is kind of like waking your plant up and telling it that it is time to grow. I have found that the best time to apply this liquid to your plants is about every 7 to ten days, or every other week to be safe. Every year we do this the same way and our flowers out-bloom all of our neighbors plants.
 
There are a few things that you should also consider if you want to make this a successful transplant. These are, you will have to make sure that you have the proper lighting, and before watering each time, make sure that the soil is dry to the touch before adding more of this liquid to your plants. In addition to all of this, don't forget that sooner or later you may have to feed your plant again and miracle-gro does have the proper food for all plants. The most important thing to remember is that you will need to make sure that your soil is in good condition every year for the most excellent results.

Conclusion
If you are having trouble with your plants staying alive all summer long, I have found this to be the miracle cure for all of my problems. The only time that we really have to worry is when we go in vacation. But, for the most part, this stuff will take care of all of your potted and garden plants. If you can’t use all of this don’t let the rest go to waste, you can simply give it to a friend for their garden. The container when empty is recyclable, and if you do have some of this product left you can just pour it in a place out of the way. At least this is what I have done with any that I have left over. Happy blooming this summer.
