As a small space gardener on a budget, I’m always on the lookout for great products to use with my plants. I don’t have much room to add more plants, so I want to make the ones I have last for as long as possible. Miracle-Gro 1001233 All Purpose Plant Food is definitely one of these products that can do the job.
I used fertilizer sticks for awhile, but I could only find these for specific types of plants. I wanted to find a fertilizer that I could use on a variety of plants. Miracle-Gro 1001233 All Purpose Plant Food is a great fertilizer to use on different types of plants.
Miracle-Gro 1001233 All Purpose Plant Food can be used on all shrubs, houseplants, flowers, trees, and vegetables. It can be mixed with water in a watering can or used with the Miracle-Gro Garden Feeder.
In my experience, there are much more pros than cons when it comes to using Miracle-Gro 1001233 All Purpose Plant Food. Below is a list of both.
- Great price for what it has to offer.
- Comes in a variety of sizes and package deals.
- Can be used on a variety of plants.
- Only needs to be used every 1-2 weeks.
- Claims to be safe for all plants.
- Doesn’t burn plants when used correctly.
- Works instantly on plants.
- Encourages plants to grow bigger.
- Easy to use.
- Burns some plants. One of my containers filled with French marigolds dried up soon after I used this fertilizer. I think I may have used too much fertilizer, but the other container with marigolds is doing fine.
- There is some guesswork involved in how much fertilizer to use in a watering can. I have a small watering can, so I’ve had to use trial and error to figure out how much fertilizer to use.
Overall, I have been happy with the results I’ve had so far with Miracle-Gro 1001233 All Purpose Plant Food on all my plants in my small container garden.

HOW TO BEST USE
There are thorough directions on the box on how to best use the fertilizer. The box comes with a nifty two sided measuring spoon. One side is for fertilizing houseplants and the larger side is for outside plants. I’ve had to modify how much fertilizer to put in the larger spoon since my watering can is small.
