the soil around here is loamy, but I potted the tomatos with a mix of the soil and store bought manure.
Your tomatoes are in pots/containers???
When you have loamy soil, and finer soils, sometimes when you water, the water can drain out too quickly and the plants
never get the chance to utilize the nutrients that are in the soil or fertilizers...
fertilize once a week with Miracle Gro.
When you fertilize, is the soil dry or moist/??
Should always do it when the soil is moist and plant
is previously hydraded, then fertilize...
that way it won't burn the plants
Also, always fertilize early in the morning,
never in the HOT SUN!!!!
What numbers are on your Miracle Gro?
Also, next time you mix up the soil,
throw in some Orangic fertilizers, they're slow to release, but is easier on your plants
Alfalfa Meal, Bone Meal, Blood Meal, Compost, Cottonseed Meal, Fish Meal...
And a Fish Emulsion is a great foliar feed...
**Just do this in the morning and give the leaves
time to dry before the hot sun comes out...
Glad to have found this site and sure to return.
