Feeding new seedlings inspired this product, there is no substitute for Multi-Start 2-3-3 when it comes to starting seeds or young transplants. Whether it is vegetables, fruit, flowers, perennials, or nursery stock, no other fertilizer is as gentle and supportive in growth.

Multi-Start is great for root crops, such as carrots and potatoes. Also great for legumes like peas and beans. It boosts the size of vegetables by enhancing the root systems. Multi-Start 2-3-3 enhances nitrogen fixation by legumes. In legumes, the bacteria live in nodules along the root system. Within these nodules, nitrogen fixation is done by the bacteria, and the ammonia produced is absorbed by the plant. Multi-Start essentially helps the partnership between the bacterium and the plant creating stronger stalks and increased flowering for excellent production. Multi-Start’s is an excellent choice for many of Bermuda’s top crops, such as carrots, onions, potatoes, beets and beans.
Multi-Start provides an excellent start for new seed or sod installations by enhancing its root system. To get a competitive edge over weeds, you need a healthy roots to create a thicker sod. An extensive root system also increases the lawn’s feeding efficiency and the percent of organic matter in the soil. Furthermore, the soil’s nutrient and water holding capacity increases, along with the biological activity. As we nourish and grow the microorganisms in the soil their activity creates other benefits like: mobilization of nutrients, nitrogen fixation, insect and disease suppression and aeration of the soil.
