Levington® Tomorite® Giant Planter with Seaweed
Levington® Tomorite® Giant Planter with Seaweed is bigger than the standard growing bag, which allows for easier watering and water control, better root growth and, as a result, will produce bigger, fuller flavoured yields.
How To Use
Give the bag a good Shake, this will help to evenly distribute the compost, and make sure any compacted lumps are broken down.
Cut along the dotted lines of the panels you want to use, if you are only planting two plants, use the end panels.
Delay planting tomatoes until the first flowers open
Make sure that you add in support canes and tie in the stems
When to Water
After planting, water when necessary using about 6 Litres (approx 1.5 gallon) to keep the planter moist. Watering needs to be kept as regular as possible, this will help to stop your tomatoes getting Blossom End Rot.
We recommend feeding 20ml of Tomorite in 4.5L (1 gallon) of water, twice a week for crops growing outside and once a week for those being grown inside a glass greenhouse.
Avoid piercing the bottom of the planter, as this will stop the nutrients from being washed straight out, but be careful of over watering and flooding the planter.
Train plants to fan out, this will help them to soak up as much sunlight as possible and a good air flow to pass through.
Keep an eye out for signs of pests, make sure you treat them straight away by using a edible crop friendly pesticide. Make sure you read the label before you purchase, as not all pesticides can be used on edible crops.
