Answer: 
When it comes to how much, I roughly follow instructions on the bag. With the spoon I spread it evenly around each plant (having about 15 tomato plants) above roots area and wider (imaginable- depends on size of plants you have) and then very gently work it into the top of the ground (to prevent washing off). The result is visible within few days. Tomatoes grew bigger and stronger. Great product!

Answer: 
The directions are pretty clear. Never put it right on the base of plant, you could burn the plant.. I sprinkle it by hand 4 to 8 inches away from base and lightly work it into soil with my fingers. When you water soil it will sink to roots.. Just make sure you wash hands well after.

Answer: 
To prep the soil, sprinkle 1 cup of Jobe's Organics Heirloom Tomato and Vegetable Food per 10 sq ft. over the surface plus one to two inches of compost. Mix into the top 4 to 5 inches of soil and water thoroughly. If soil has already been prepared, as a side dressing, sprinkle 1 cup of Jobe's per 10 sq. ft or 1 cup per 10 linear feet of row.

Why doesn't Jobes offer more info on application intervals? I used Tomato-Tone for years and they were very specific about applying every 10 days. Do you think I could apply this product the same way?

Answer: 
I recommend you do not apply every ten days. You must carefully follow the application directions on the bag. This product will quickly caused "fertilizer burn" to your tomato plants if overapplied.

Yes! I thought I was losing all my Roma tomatoes. I couldn't get one tomato off of 7 plants without bottom end rot. I decided to try the last ditch effort of putting this fertilizer on them. I applied on the ground at the base of each plant. I then went on vacation for 2 weeks. When I returned I had tons of tomatoes. Some still had the little black spots but it was like the bottom end rot stopped and didn't allow the rot to go any further. I now have lots of beautiful tomatoes. Read Less

Answer: 
You will find many scientific and less scientific advises about fertilizing tomatoes plants. Using this fertilizer I follow general advise: I fertilize when planting tomatoes plants and then when they start fruiting I keep moderately fertilizing every 10-14 days until the frost.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Organic Tomato plant food Very difficult to grow tomatoes in FLA....either too much rain or intense heat. Did get a higher yield this year from using Jobes however...nothing spectacular but enough left over from the bugs and other threats that I enjoyed some quality fruit. Bag wasnt big enough for the cost but it was organic and there are few choices. Each year i get a little better at tomatoes. Had 20 plants of all different varieties...half didnt produce anything. Think my soil was the problem mostly, not enough drainage, resulting in root rot September 9, 2015
