Seeing as I can only grow my tomatoes in pots (5 gallon to 8 gallons pots), I'd really like some good advice on what fertiliser to use, as well as how frequently to fertilise. I realise with the smaller pots that the nutrients will get depleted faster, and was wondering if fertilising with a soluble fertiliser (miracle grow 18-18-21 for tomatoes) every week would be too much or just right?
I have been using some fish agra and compost tea, but it really wasn't enough for them.
Right now they all have flowers and some even have baby tomatoes. They have only had one feeding with inorganic fertiliser and I noticed the change in them after a few days. My plants had been pretty yellow looking after an accidental overdose with aspirin water, and on the advice of members here, gave them a good feeding.
I'm just trying to get the feeding on a good schedule where I am not over or under feeding.
When they were planted I added crushed eggshell to the pots, but was wondering is it would be an idea to purchase some calcium nitrate. I had way too much BER last year, and am hoping to avoid that this year if possible. Growing in pots means lower yield, so losing some to BER is a real bummer.
I welcome any advice. Thank you
