    Couldn't find Bio-Tone Starter in any local store so I ordered from Plants by Mail. Arrive quickly and has been used in my fall planting. Looking forward to seeing the results!

    Loved your tutorial on Bio Tone Starter Plus.. I couldn't find it locally.. So I am ordering it now with you folks. I am hoping it will help my distressed Gardenia which I transplanted and now its very droopy and I am afraid it will die... Gosh these Gardenias are sensitive. Hopefully this will help.. Thanks again.

    Love my Bio-tone Starter fertilizer. I was unable to find it locally and was glad to find it online. Arrived in a timely manner and in great condition.
