Becausse I know that tomatoes need calicum to grow and do their best in producing top notch fruit and that is what I can seen my plants doing. I would like to know how to get the most out of my eggshells, which is the best way to apply them to my tomatoes.
1. Grind them up and just apply around the base of the plant?
2. Should I apply them to the base of the plant and cover with some organic mulch like mushroom compost?
I am a little concern about applying any mushroom compost to the plants because I am afraid that they will no longer produce fruit but instead start producing lots of green leafs and no produce.
What I have been doing in the last month or so is just applying the ground eggshells to the base of the plant before I give them their weekly watering. (And yes before planting them I made sure each plant received a good dose ofeggshells in their hole.)
Otherewise, my plants doing great and I see that they are working hard at producing many fruits. Thank you.
