This makes watering cans a thing of the past. Simply pour the Lawn Magic or Liquid Flower Power Plant Food into the feeder, adjust the settings, attach the hosepipe, pull the trigger, and happy feeding. It’s great with soluble Flower Power too, just dissolve the granules in water and pour the liquid concentrate into the feeder.
Using the Hose End Sprayer
WHEN TIGHTENING THE HEAD OF THE SPRAYER TO THE BOTTLE DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN IT, TIGHTEN JUST SO THAT THE HEAD DOES NOT SWIVEL.
When your lawn is very dry or hard, it is best to water the lawn thoroughly before applying your Lawn Magic to allow the product to permeate to the roots rather than sit just below the surface.
Occasionally, you should spike/fork the lawn to ensure air can get to the roots, at least in early Spring and Midsummer.
The hose end fitting on the sprayer will fit most hose fittings such as Hozelock, Gardena etc. but those fittings do not last forever and if there is leakage, it is most likely the fittings on your hose pipe.
The sprayer can be used just to water the garden by turning the white knob to the horizontal position (on) and leaving the blue knob in the (vertical) position off. In periods of very dry weather it is a good idea to water the lawn or plants first using the water only knob then using the feed knob.
Lawn Magic Application
Fill the bottle to the 600ml mark with Lawn Magic and attach the hose.
Roughly measure out your lawn/s by taking good paces across the lawn then good paces down the lawn then multiplying the 2 numbers eg 5 paces x 4 paces =approx. 20 square metres – you need to get 100mls of Lawn Magic onto every 10 square metres of lawn therefore if your lawn is 10 square metres, just water the product on to the lawn ensuring even coverage until 100mls of product has left the bottle. Similarly if your lawn is 50 square metres you will water evenly until only 100mls is left in the bottom of the spray bottle.
Remember that the feed will not run below the 100ml mark so filling the bottle to 600mls means that you will be able to feed 50 square metres with 100 mls approx remaining in the spray bottle.
The spray will come out in a fan approx. 8ft long and 2ft wide. Spray each section of lawn in a sweeping motion.
Use approximately every 4/6 weeks.
Flower Power Plant Food Application
Completely dissolve 4 scoops of Flower Power Plant Food in 300ml of warm water and pour this through a tea-strainer to remove any small pieces that may not have dissolved (otherwise they could block the sprayer). Pour the filtered liquid into the hose-end feeder bottle, attach the hosepipe and the feeder will automatically be diluted at the correct rate as you water. 300ml of the concentrate liquid will make up to 18 litres of diluted Flower Power.
Liquid Flower Power Plant Food Application
Simply add a mix of 50% of the Flower Power liquid concentrate with 50% water. The feeder will the dilute at the correct rate as you water. This will make up 30 litres of diluted Flower Power.
