Give your plants the best possible start in the garden

This amazingly effective organic fertilizer mixes with soil or potting mix to minimize transplant loss, help young plants establish strong root system, encourage nutrient intake, and prevent disease. Containing vital plant nutrients, bacteria, and fungi (micorrhizae), it also assists in soil aeration and water retention. There's no better way to get your garden and containers off to a great start than with Bio-tone®.

Formulated to provide plants with all the key nutrients they need, Bio-tone® Starter Plus contains 4% nitrogen (1.6% water soluble, 2.4% water insoluble), 3% phosphate, 3% soluble potash, 4% calcium, 1% magnesium, and 2% sulfur. Just as important, it contains beneficial microbes to add in plant growth. Bio-tone® contains both ectomycorrhizae (the type that live on the surface of plant roots) and endomycorrhizae (which live within root cells). These fungi make the phosphorus your plants need easier to "digest," as well as delivering other soil nutrients to the roots.

To apply Bio-tone®, simply work all 4 pounds into a 100-square-foot area of soil, blending to a depth of 6 inches. Or, to add to potting mixes, use 1 cup of Bio-tone® per cubic foot. It lasts all season.
