You might give this a try: Humisolve2.html
Follow the directions.
I like to dose my seedlings with this: Root Stimulator & Plant Starter Solution 4-10-3 : Ferti-lome
At least twice (about a week or 10 days apart) & right after transplanting.
I also make my own potting soil: 2 parts sterile manure, 1 part strerile peat, 1 part native soil, 0.5 part earthworm castings.
Growlights indoors help too.
After they've been outside for a week or two, I like to dose them with liquid Ironite. After that it's just mild fertilizer every 3 weeks or so & more Ironite if it needs it. Hope you find some of this info useful. Regards, GF.
