Bio-tone Starter

Has anyone tried this in containers - thinking about veg. containers?

RE: Bio-tone Starter

I have run a number of experiments over the last five years re Bio-tone Starter plus 4-3-3 with Mycorrhizae. Bottom line. It is a product I will never be without. I add it to containers, a handful around roots when planting plus several handfuls on soil surface in each pot. Also I mix it into seed starter soil and work handfuls down rows when planting seeds and transplants in the large gardens. I can only report very healthy vegetable plants using it.

As has been posted by others here on the GW, pepper plants thrive on Mycorrhizae producing strong plants with abundant fruit set grown in containers. I find Bio-Tone products available at Lowes.

I have been using the BioTone Starter Plus w/ Myco for 3 years and I concur with nandina. I mix it into the growing medium in each container including my EarthBox and EarthTainer planters. I like the results.
