Q:Does this product contain any calcium?
by|Jan 8, 2023
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  If your looking for added calcium I suggest you use Espoma Tomato-Tone. Works great for veggies needing extra calcium. If your plants are already mature and have a calcium deficiency a calcium foliar spray will work faster.

      A:  Thank you for your question. For best results, apply at time of planting or prior to the growing season.

        A:  No one knows: as you see, the official answer never quite answers your question. You DO have to add it every 2 months. It's not really appropriate for a garden unless it's a micro 2X2 garden: it'd cost more than the vegetables at a high end market.

            Q:How much should I add to a fifteen gallon container filled with a potting mix?

            2 Answers
            Answer This Question

            A:  Thank you for your question. There are 2 cubic feet of soil in your 15 gallon pot. If you are potting new plants, mix in 2 cups of Garden Tone into the soil per cubic foot. In your case, mix in 4 cups of Garden Tone. If the pot has existing plants, sprinkle 1.5 teaspoons of Garden Tone into the soil around the edge of the pot for every 4 inches of pot diameter. Water thoroughly.

                            A:  There is micro life in the product to break things down faster (most soups have this life already). As long it is dry you can store it for 4 years. 

                            by|Jul 26, 2022

                              A:  Thank you for your question. When stored dry the fertilizer materials have an almost unlimited shelf life. Garden-Tone has Bio-tone microbes and is best used prior to the date printed on the bag.

                                      A:  Blossom end rot is mostly caused by watering. Regular watering is the solution. Also just cut away the rot part and you can enjoy the rest of the tomato.

                                        A:  Thank you for your question. We have reached out to the manufacturer regarding your inquiry.

                                        by|Feb 28, 2023

                                          A:  A specific tomato fertilizer will prevent blossom end rot. It will contain added calcium to prevent blossom end rot. I use Espoma tomato-tone. Garden-tone will not solve your problem. I use it at planting which is best. At this point you might need a liquid calcuim additive fed through the soil or sprayed on the leaves. Good luck. V
