This is my first season using this organic product but already a month into the growing season I can tell you I am seeing better results from this product than normal Miracle Grow. It is easy to mix and doesn't require a lot of stiring or shaking since its liquid already. Give it a shot and grow healthy the organic way. Also I don't think the smell is an issue at all unless you are putting your nose up to the bottle. I can't help when I read people complaining about the smell and laughing.
