How do I fertilize my flowers?
Just water as normal with the fertilizer mix. You want the soil to be well saturated, but not to the point where water is coming out the bottom of the container.

How often should I fertilize?
Outdoor plants and flowers should be fertilized at least once a week. Indoor plants about once a month. You can fertilize more often if you really want your flowers to get going (example in early spring.) Up to 2 or 3 times a week will give them a good boost, then taper back to at least once a week.
Can I use this fertilizer on my garden?
Absolutely. Your garden vegetables will love it.
Can I use this on trees or shrubs?
Yes, but it is not designed for them. You may be better off with a tree spike or a specific fertilizer if you have evergreens.
Is Beat Your Neighbor fertilizer organic?
No, sorry it is not an organic fertilizer.
How fast will I receive my order?
We ship USPS Mail, you should receive your order in usually 3 to 5 days. You will receive a tracking number via email.
Can I use it on perennials?
Absolutely. You can also use it on roses and hydrangeas too as a general purpose, but specialized flowers should use a specific fertilizer.
How long before I see results?
You'll see foliage start to turn greener within a few days but getting flowers does take time to form. Feed a few times a week if you want faster results.
Is this available in any stores?
We are proudly not in the big box retailers, however, we do have several independent floral, greenhouses (where you should be getting your flowers) and shops selling our fertilizer.
Can I use this fertilizer in a hose-end sprayer?
Yes you can, just remember that ours is concentrated so you would probably use half a jar, because that would make about 50 gallons which is usually what the Miracle Gro hose-end sprayers make. Just be sure to check the color of the fertilizer in a clear glass coming out from the sprayer. It should have just a tint of blue.

Can you ship to Canada or outside the USA?
No, sorry. We can only ship within the USA.
My state isn't listed to ship to. Why?
We can only ship to certain states because of licensing and regulations in each state. Basically there are 50 different sets of rules (each state) so we only ship to those states that we are currently registered and licensed in. We are working on being current in each state, but it is a massive undertaking to go through the red tape to be in each state. You may just have to be patient with us as we grow.
What soil should I use for my flowers?
It is VERY important to use a good quality soil, and it's NOT likely that you will find that in any big box retailer. If you are not using a good grade of soil, you will not get the results that you are looking for from our fertilizer. There is no way for the nutrients in the fertilizer to get to the plants in a sub-standard soil mix.
