Review: Miracle Gro Flower Magic

I was sent this lovely “all in one flower mix” some time ago now.  Promising flowers within six weeks, I was excited to see if it lived up to it’s promises.  It contains 16 flower seed varieties with a combination of early and late bloomers.  It is so easy to use – all you do is shake it onto weeded and raked soil and then water.  I have shaken it in a few different places in my garden but I don’t think even Miracle Gro’s expert Flower Magic could have predicted this unusually cold May!  Seeds do need some warmth in order to germinate and so the only shoots I can see are those I planted in pots in a sun trap area of the garden.

For ease of use, I would give this product ten out of ten but check back here in a month or so to see if we have had enough sunlight for the actual flowers.  I am excited, anyway! Roll on summer.
