Hose feeding accessory

Hi I use a liquid seaweed feed and because I have alot of pots and also like to feed the lawn I was thinking about one of those accessories which fits on the hose and sprays feed. Do you think they are Ok to use with my own liquid feed rather than the granules which usually come with the accessory, like the Miracle-Gro ones, and how on earth does it deduce the correct proportion of feed to water as most of them claim? Surely it becomes more dilute as you go along? Never quite got my head around these. Thanks all
You pour the blue granules in and start spraying.
Initially the mix coming out of the spray is very dark blue and as it gets used the output gets paler and paler until there's just a hint of blue before the granules are finished.
It's plainly overfeeding at the start and underfeeding by the end - so it's pretty useless.
I never used it again.
The other moan I had about it is that unless you hold it horizontally all the time the the concentration changes. If you point it down the spray is dark blue (it also dribbles out of the jar) if you tilt it up a bit the spray seems to be just water.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
for the fag ends of the aristocracy.
As someone who is certificated on spraying all sought of products, the Miracle grow applicator is dreadful. It relies on pushing water into the container so it dilutes the product every second it is in use.
Buy your self and inline dilutor, amazing bit of kit.
