Applying Garden Tonics with a Sprayer

Some of the garden tips and tonics that call for a 20 gal sprayer, yet the amounts in the tonics do not fill the 20 gallon sprayer. My question is, do I then add water to fill the 20 gallon sprayer before applying the tonic to the lawn, plant beds, etc? Thank you. Leo from Houston, Texas

Just because it says to use a '20 gallon sprayer' does NOT mean you have to fill it full! Just mix the amount you need in the sprayer and have at it. With the sprayer less than full only means you will have to pump more air into it to begin spraying. I frequently mix tonics etc. and the sprayer is much less than half full.

Are you sure the tips you are talking about dont require a "sprayer" that goes on the hose? Jerry Baker's tips use the 20 gallon hose end sprayer. With that, you don't have to measure the water. You just put the product in the sprayer and the hose adds the water as it sprayer. There is no pumping. Yippee!
