Can you use Miracle Grow and Osmocote together?
Osmocote is a pre-planting, slow release fertilizer. Miracle-Gro (unless using the new continuous-feed, shake-able formulation) is a water soluble fertilizer used every other week or so. They both work. The advantage to the Osmocote is that it is working even if you're not there.
