Pros:Adequately feeds acid-loving plants; size choices; cost-effective; easy application.
I have used Miracid Plant Food for many years and I'm completely sold on it. A friend who was a master gardener noticed that the leaves of my evergreen shrubs such as rhododendrons, azaleas, and camellias were always a pale yellow rather than a healthy dark green. He explained that these were acid-loving plants and that they appeared to be "iron-starved." On his recommendation, I purchased my first container of Miracid Plant Food and applied it to my "jaundiced" evergreen shrubs, following simple label directions.

Was I pleased with the results of using Miracid? YES! It was only a matter of days until I began to notice that the leaves of my shrubs began to turn a lush, dark green. Miracid literally saved their lives. Since then, I have used it on my boxwood, hydrangeas, hostas, ivy, and a variety of other evergreen shrubs.
Miracid is easy to apply and is odorless. It can be purchased as a kit, which you should purchase if you're a first-time user. This kit includes a special spray jar with a unique lid that attaches to a garden hose and can be used over and over. Your next box of Miracid granules can be purchased without the special jar, making it more economical to use.
I simply add the specified amount of granules to this jar, attach my hose, turn on my water faucet to fill and mix the granules, then spray the Miracid mixture onto the entire plant, leaves and all.
I use Miracid on my evergreen shrubs about every 6-8 weeks beginning in early spring and throughout the growing season. My garden soil is quite rich, but it lacks the iron and other special minerals that my acid-loving plants need for optimum growth.
Anyone who grows rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias, or any other acid-loving plants will love Miracid. I keep it on my garden shelf year-around. A little Miracid goes a long ways!
