When to Start Fertilizing Tomatoes
November 4, 2018
It's always good to apply a fertilizer to your tomato plants at planting time. Then, hold off! Then, plants start to set fruit and fruit reaches about half its mature size, pick up your normal every-other-week fertilizer rotation. The plant will now put those nutrients to work developing flowers or fruits.
If you fertilizer tomatoes too often too early, before fruit begins to develop, you might just end up with too much vegetative growth instead of flowers and fruit.
