            Comments about Professional ROSS Root Feeder:

            My feeder finally packed it in after 15 years so I immediately went looking for a replacement. The feeder had served me well and resulted in the best looking trees on the block. First stop was the reviews on this page, which really scared me (could the "new" version be as badly made as described by most people?) When I inspected it I concur it's made cheaply and I hesitated buying it. Luckily I phoned around and found two nurseries that still had the original model in stock. It's more expensive, but well worth the extra cost. Hope anyone still looking is successful like I was.

            Comments about Professional ROSS Root Feeder:

            Root feeders are a simple, great idea, but they must be made to last and offer reasonably priced replacement parts. Ross Root Feeders do neither. Better off to make your own.

                We live in Texas and we've had a very dry hot summer this year. The root feeder works great for us and conserves water.

                Comments about Professional ROSS Root Feeder:

                This product has a great concept. The really old ones were made to last and worked well. I have decomposed granite and the tip clogs every time keeping any and all fertilizer from injecting as it is designed. Like so many other things, I guess Ross decided a cheap profitable product made in China is better than a "professional" product that actually works.

                    Comments about Professional ROSS Root Feeder:

                    I use it to root feed & water evergreens & shrubs etc.It is great in saving water during the process.
                    It has a good design and you can see the fertilizer through the glass top.
                    The 3rd time I used it the female connector on top started to leak. Any movement will cause more water to seep out. Can't find the problem.
                    It was pluged-up when I turned on the water.(no water would run through). I turned the bottom end clockwise/counter a few times with a screwdriver until it find@$y begun to run.
                    The unit is too short. they should make the it longer by adding 12 inces to the lenth.
