How to Grow Tomatoes

Is a tomato a fruit or vegetable? Actually it's both, and it's also full of health benefits like vitamin A, C, K, potassium, fiber and a rich source of antioxidants. Tomatoes are relatively easy to cultivate and grow pretty quickly - you can grow them in a raised bed or larger grower container. 

Items you’ll Need:

  • Raised bed or large grower container

  • Tomatoes

  • Tomato Cage(s)

  • E.B. Stone Organic Tomato & Vegetable Food

How To:

Step 1: Fill your raised bed or large grower container (5 gal or larger) with E.B. Stone Organic Raised Bed Mix

Step 2: Dig a hole, gently lift your tomatoes out of the grower pot and place the tomatoes in the raised bed or grower container and space your tomatoes 18 – 36 inches apart

Step 3: Sprinkle E.B. Stone Sure Start Organic Fertilizer on the roots to help reduce transplant shock

PREVENT BLOSSOM END ROT AT PLANTING TIME

Blossom-end rot is a common issue that's caused by a calcium imbalance within the plant that can occur in tomatoes, as well as peppers, cucumbers, squash and melon fruits. To help prevent this, use 1-2 tablespoons of Gypsum in the soil at planting time.

Note: *Be sure to add a large tomato cage for much needed support. Remember to feed your tomatoes throughout the growing season with E.B. Stone Organic Tomato & Vegetable Food and water regularly. Best to feed every 6-8 weeks.
