For vegetable gardens, apply Garden Trust® at 1 lb. per 100 sq. ft. One feeding at the time of planting is all that is needed to produce a “bumper crop” of vegetables.
Applying Garden Trust® at 1 lb. per 100 sq. ft. = roughly 1 teaspoon of Garden Trust® teaspoon per plant. Sprinkle Garden Trust® around the stem of each plant, keeping Garden Trust® 6 – 8 inches away from the stem of each vegetable plant.For most vegetables, this is enough Garden Trust® for the entire crop cycle.
Special Instruction For Tomatoes
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® Aat least 8 – 12 inches from the stem of the tomato plant.
ANote: 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.
