Is Miracle Gro horrendous?

So I was at a health store yesterday and the owner's plants are all so healthy. He said he uses Miracle Gro but I thought that stuff wasn't kosher. Now I wanna use it because even if it's not organic, as long as I am not eating the plants, it's all good, right?

Well, I just looked up Miracle-Gro on Wikipedia and they got in trouble several years ago for selling bird seed coated with a substance poisonous to birds (and fish) eye rolling smiley No way!

Manure or compost tea or seaweed solution work pretty great if you're looking for an alternative.

Coco, I live near some woods that I used to visit with my father as a kid. He'd collect the horse manure from the trails because there was a stable nearby. I don't think it's around anymoresad smiley That seaweed solution might work (don't know what compost tea is).

It's just basically compost soak water, easy enough to do if you've got some ripe compost and a big enough bucket. Check it out smiling smiley.

When making compost tea it is better to aerate it like with a small pump because if the compost just sits in the water for too long it will go anaerobic (not good).
