Tomato Feed

West Sussex, United Kingdom Gb

Am i right in thinking you can use tomato feed as a general food for all other plants/shrubs aswell?



Yes, the best liquid fertiliser is Tomarite, other than making your own.

I use dry bonemeal as a fertiliser to mix in potting composts and tomato feed as a liquid fertiliser. Tomato feed is relatively low in nitrogen so it will promote the growth of fruits (tomatos), flowers and roots but not so much the green foliage. As I don't want lush foliage on my plants this is the only feed that I use. At the moment I am feeding my potted bulbs that have finished flowering every two weeks with tomato feed.
