Tips for Tomato growing success

1.  Soak your plant in Fish Fertilizer for 2-3 minutes before planting.

2.  Dig a hole at least a foot wide and a foot deep (post hole diggers work great for this)

3.  Place 1/4 cup of ground Lime in the bottom of the hole

4.  Place 1 cup of Bulb Food or Bone Meal in the bottom of the hole

5.  Back-fill with a mixture of soil and compost

6.  If you are having problems with Blossom End Rot (brown mushiness at the end of your tomatoes) this is usually caused by a lack of calcium in the soil.  Sprinkle crushed eggshells around your plants to add calcium back into the soil.  It make take quite a few weeks for the calcium to leach into the soil, so do this as soon as you can to make it as available to your plants as possible.  If you are unable to do this until later, don’t worry too much.  Often your first few tomatoes will get blossom end rot, and then all the rest that had more time to soak up the nutrients will be perfectly fine.

7.  Don’t forget to water!!! Plants that lack water become stressed, and stressed plants attract insects and disease. So, with out overwatering and drowning your plants, just make sure to keep the soil moist.  The best time to water is in the early morning.
