Espoma Tomato Tone

Espoma Tomato-tone is an organic, slow-release plant food that can be used to add nutrients and beneficial microbes to the soil to improve soil quality and provide nutrition for tomatoes and vegetables. The balance of nutrients helps encourage more flowers to maximize fruit production, and the calcium helps prevent blossom-end rot.

How to Use & When to Apply:

When planting tomato beds, work 3 pounds for every 50 square feet into the top 4 to 6 inches of soil. To reapply, apply 1 cup per 5 feet of row twice a month throughout the growing season. Water thoroughly after application. Keep fertilizer at least 3 inches from stems and avoid contact with leaves.

For individual plants, work 3 tablespoons of Tomato-tone into the soil when planting, then water in. Repeat monthly through the growing season.

For potted plants, combine 2 cups of Tomato-tone per cubic foot of soil (1½ teaspoons per quart of soil) and use to fill containers. Feed twice a month with 1½ teaspoons per 4 inches of pot diameter. Water thoroughly after application.
