Description

Organic 3™ 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 & endo mycorrhizae— which contributes to drought tolerance, enhanced nutrient availability, and increased plant performance.

The Dr. Earth® probiotics are a most complete “broad-spectrum” bio-active package designed to work synergistically with the raw organic nutrients that make up the Organic 3™ formula. This spectacular blend builds soil health, promotes superior flowers and roses with larger and more abundant colorful blooms.
