slow release pellets

How many for a hanging basket, or a plantpot?    Teaspoon say,  or more?    I can't seem to find out anywhere.

    Doesn't it say in the packet?

    No it doesn't.

    How odd. I took a pic of mine for you if that helps at all. I've just noticed they've added a note about being harmful to aquatic wildlife that's never been on there before too :/

    I very rarely wear gloves when gardening unless I am trying to protect a cut that I have received when gardening that is.

    Thanks.   Looks like a tablespoon from that.    Don't want to use too much and damage the plants.    My pellets were from the pound shop and didn't have instructions.

    Maybe the formulation has changed and now there is something in it which is bad news for fish.

    I've been doing some research to find out what has changed and not many people have good things to say about Miracle-gro :/

    I've checked my jar of slow release which I've had a couple of years and there is nothing on that about being harmful to fish.
