      Q:Can this Espoma herb & vegetable fertilizer be used to speed up decomposition of compost pile? If not, what formula would be better?

      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Thank you for your question. Espoma has a Compost Starter product that is designed just for this purpose. However, it can be difficult to find. Garden-tone does have the necessary microbes and nutrients that would be beneficial to a compost, however, and could conceivably be utilized in that way.

        Q:Can this be used as a lawn fertilizer?

        Answer This Question

        A:  Sure, but there are better choice for laws.  Generally grass wants very hight nitrogen and small amounts of potassium and phosphorous.  This product will be much more "balanced" than typical lawn fertilizers and may encourage growth of invasive or undesirable plants in the lawn.

        by|Oct 11, 2021

          A:  Thank you for your question. Espoma Garden tone is best used on vegetables and herbs. A better option would be to use an Espoma Lawn item.

                Q:My package became wet in rain and now it is like a lump of poop with the same bad smell. What should i do? Is it still usable?

                A:  Yes, still good for use

                by|Jul 17, 2021

                  A:  Thank you for your question. Once it becomes wet, the product becomes activated and will begin to break down. It will not be very effective when used at a later time, as the product already activated. We always recommend keeping the product dry for this reason.

                    Q:If I have tomatoes in pots, do I fertilize based on the tomatoes (1/3 cup) directions or the potted plants directions (1.5 tsp per 4”)?

                    Answer This Question

                    A:  Because Espoma is an organic fertilizer, there is less risk of burning your plants, but follow directions as indicated. Place fertilizer away from the stem, circular around the base, work it into the soil and water it in. It is a slow release fertilizer.

                    by|Jul 22, 2021

                    A:  It depends on the size of the pot. If you are using 5 gallon buckets and larger use the regular recommended amount. If smaller go with the potted plant recommendation. It is slow release so it won’t burn If you use a little too much.

                    by|Jul 17, 2021

                    A:  Thank you for your question. Please refer to the following: Feeding Vegetables and Tomatoes, Single plants: Apply up to 1/3 cup per plant. Rows: Apply 1-1/3 cup each side per 5 ft. of row or 10 lbs. each side per 100 ft. of row.

                      A:  Great fertilizer for veggies, especially potted tomatoes to help prevent end rot. I'd have preferred a 4# bag, 8# bag is way above my needs.
