Better Boy Tomato


kc2765 added on May 16, 2015 | Answered

How can I grow a robust dark green colored, but healthy fruit producing, tomato plant with the exception of a traditional "Miracle Grow" fertilizer? I grow Better Boys as a favorite. I have a soil tester. My plants do ok but have that "spindley" look. Looking for that deep dark green heavy base stalk plant. Have raised beds and amend the soil routinely.

I would recommend using a fish emulsion.
Below is a link about making your own, but it is readily available at any garden center.
I use it about once a week on my tomato plants. Follow the directions on the bottle for diluting the concentrate and applying to your tomatoes.
I also use epsom salt every couple of weeks. I have great success using these two simple, economical and natural fertilizers on all my vegetable plants.
