Customer Reviews

I use these on my tomatoes and hot peppers with good success.
M. Kettler
All plants I used these on grew bigger, bushier, and fruited more than without the spikes.

About a month later, the plants are huge and green with blossoms and produce.

I use these on my tomatoes and hot peppers with good success. These spikes should also work well for any kind of fruiting vegetable.

The spikes last for 8 weeks at a time, and provides a nice, steady slow release fertilizer. This makes for very convenient gardening.

For tomatoes I use them at half the recommended rate, and supplement with potassium and magnesium rich fertilizers (epsom salt, greensand, wood ash, miracle-gro for tomatoes).

For hot peppers I use them at 1/3 the recommended rate and a small amount of epsom salt (these plants don't need much fertilizer, but are somewhat magnesium hungry).

My crops on both kinds of plants are great, and I'm quite happy with these. I only wish they had a low-nitrogen spike with more potassium in it for tomatoes (ie: 2-6-7, instead of 2-7-4)

Edit 6/28/2013:

Previously I could find these locally, but this year I'm having a hard time finding them, so I ordered them from Amazon.

I continue to use these with great results, both in raised beds and potted planters. I also ordered the general purpose (4-4-4) version and am trying it out on leaf-crop herbs (basil, oregano, etc), and leafy houseplants (spider plant, philodendron, etc).

I also notice they have a "Container and Annuals" version which is 3-5-6.. I might try that on tomatoes sometime for the higher potassium, but for now I'm using what I've been happy with.

Instructions call for using 8 spikes per plant or 8 spikes per square foot. At 50 spikes per bag, that is enough for 6 plants or 6 square feet. We are not sure if this many are truly required, but have used them as instructed with excellent results. A rather sad Fish Pepper, for example, perked with color and started giving larger fruit within days of application.

I don't know why the package recommends using 8 spikes per plant. Perhaps some soils are so poor and they want to be sure you will get good results. For me, I use only one per plant and they work great. Maybe my soil is exceptional, but I doubt it.

Bought these for my pepper plants which had been lagging behind in growth. Instructions say 8 stakes per plant or 8 per square foot. I put one in for each plant about 4" from the stem. Only 3 days later the plants seem to be growing quite well. Would have been better if the description on Amazon told how many to use so I wouldn't have to hunt them down on the manufacturers site to find out.

A few days of using these, I really saw my vegetables take off! I did not use as many spikes per plant as suggested. Used one bag for a 10x10 area with about 30 plus plants.

I bought these food spikes to try around some new planted plants that seemed to be having trouble. Well the spikes worked great, within a few days the plants became more lively and are growing great.

Ok all I know is that we used these this growing season and we had an ubelievable bumper crop like never before. Plants were just healthier, producing mega amounts of larger-than-normal produce. Not to mention the convenience of just being able to insert these into growing medium by the plants, plus it is slow-release so the plant keeps getting fed whereas watering with liquid fertilizers is much less efficient since most of it ends up wasted; the plants can't absorb a big dose like that all at once. I will be ordering and using these again next growing season.

I dont really like it cause it requires you to use 8 spikes per plant which makes it very costly to use in a small farm or even a home garden. I wish I knew that before buying it.
