Fertilizing Tomatoes With Garden Trust®

Tomatoes are very heavy feeders, so they need extra energy to produce abundant, delicious fruit. See our special instructions below for growing amazing tomatoes with Garden Trust®.

At Time Of Planting

  • Apply 1 tablespoon of Garden Trust® 6 – 8 inches away from the stem around each tomato plant after planting.

Three Weeks After Planting

  • Apply 3 tablespoons of Garden Trust® in a circle around each tomato plant, keeping Garden Trust® at least 6 – 8 inches from the stem of the tomato plant.

When Fruits Start to Set

When you see little tomatoes forming inside the yellow blooms, this is when a tomato plant is pulling the most nutrients up from the roots. Applying a heavy application of Garden Trust® now will supply the energy needed for bountiful, “bumper crop” of delicious tomatoes.

  • Apply 6 tablespoons of Garden Trust® in a circle around each tomato plant, keeping Garden Trust® at least 8 - 12 inches from the stem of the tomato plant.

Note: If you are not staking your tomato plants and allowing the vines to spread on the ground, apply this “heavy” application throughout the area covered by the expanding plant. Tomato vines will sprout roots wherever they contact the soil. You want to apply Garden Trust® to the feeder roots, not at the stem.
