Newbie here--thanks for the question. I'd like to know about regular 'ol spray n'grow? Does it perform as promised on QVC?

Thanks for asking! I hope someone answers!!

Go to the link below and click on 'Guaranteed Analysis'. The proportions of each element seem arbitrary to me. Sodium the highest? I don't know if garden plants require any sodium.

The product is intended to supply micronutrients (not NPK). I use compost or fish emulsion for that purpose. I think they are fine and they are economical.

I fell for the Spray-N-Grow hype a few years ago and bought some. It's basically an iron supplenent that you spray on. I was completely underwhelmed.

I bought this product about 8 weeks ago and have been amazed at the size of everything that I have used it on. These plants also look very healthy and the blooming plants are loaded. VERY IMPRESSED with the product. I did a test spraying a new begonia and not spraying another the same size..the sprayed one is about 4 times the size of the unsprayed one and this is with just weekly spraying for the last 4 or 5 weeks.

I've used it several years with no real effect.

Foliar sprays like fish emulsion and ACT work much better.
