Description

Organic 4™ fertilizer produces remarkable results because nutrients are released quickly, yet continue to feed for several months. Ultra-premium scientific formula provides optimum levels of primary essential plant nutrients, including micronutrients and multi-minerals. Infused with ProBiotic®—consisting of “Seven Champion Strains” of beneficial soil microbes and eight select strains of ecto and endo mycorrhizae—which contributes to drought tolerance, enhanced nutrient availability, and increased plant performance.

The Dr.Earth® probiotics are a complete “broad-spectrum” bio-active package designed to work synergistically with the raw organic nutrients that make up the Organic 4™ formula. This spectacular blend builds soil health, promotes superior bushes and flowers with larger and more abundant colorful blooms.
