Tomato & Vegetable Food 4-5-3 (4 lb box)

Organic Fertilizer with Beneficial Microbes

E. B. Stone Tomato & Vegetable Food is formulated from quality natural organic ingredients for use throughout the vegetable garden as well as with soft fruits like strawberries. It will contribute to even plant growth without producing excessive foliage at the expense of fruit. The additional phosphorous helps to ensure the production of high quality fruits and vegetables. The calcium (3%) in our Tomato & Vegetable fertilizer aids in preventing disorders like blossom end rot and helps to correct acidic soil conditions.

  • Derived from: Blood Meal, Feather Meal, Bone Meal, Dried Chicken Manure, Bat Guano, Alfalfa Meal, Kelp Meal and Potassium Sulfate
  • Application Rates:
    • New Vegetable Plantings -- Prior to planting seeds or vegetables, use 2 lb (6 cups) for every 50 square ft of garden area. Mix thoroughly into the top 6-8" of soil.
    • Established Vegetable Gardens -- Feed established plants every 4-6 weeks as needed through the growing season. Use 1 lb (3 cups) for every 50 square ft. For individual plants use 1 Tbs. Lightly mix into the soil surface and water thoroughly.
    • Large Plants (Tomatoes, Corn, etc.) -- Feed every 30 days as needed through the growing season until fruit begins to set. Use 2-4 Tbs per plant depending on size, applied to an area 12-16" wide around the main stem. Mix lightly with soil and water thoroughly.
    • Container Grown Vegetables -- Apply 1 Tbs for every 6" of pot diameter every 30 days or as needed through the growing season. Spread evenly over the soil surface, mix lightly into it, and water.
  • Contains beneficial soil microbes

When it comes to nurturing your garden and ensuring a bountiful harvest of tomatoes and vegetables, choosing the right fertilizer is essential. Tomato and Vegetable Food, with its balanced formulation of 4-5-3, in a convenient 4-lb box, is designed to provide your plants with the nutrients they need for vigorous growth, robust fruit development, and improved overall health.

Balanced Nutrient Composition

The Tomato and Vegetable Food boasts a balanced N-P-K (Nitrogen-Phosphorus-Potassium) ratio of 4-5-3. This nutrient balance is carefully formulated to meet the specific needs of tomato and vegetable plants during their various growth stages. Nitrogen (N) supports lush foliage development, while Phosphorus (P) aids in root establishment and flower and fruit formation. Potassium (K) strengthens plants, making them more resilient to stress factors and promoting fruit quality.

Enhanced Fruit Production

One of the primary objectives of using Tomato and Vegetable Food is to boost fruit production. With its higher phosphorus content (P), this fertilizer is tailored to encourage the development of vibrant and abundant fruits. Whether you're growing juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, or flavorful peppers, the increased phosphorus helps ensure larger, more plentiful harvests.

Improved Root Growth

Strong and healthy roots are the foundation of thriving plants. Tomato and Vegetable Food's phosphorus content also plays a vital role in enhancing root growth and establishment. By providing essential nutrients for root development, this fertilizer helps plants establish a robust root system, ensuring better nutrient uptake and overall plant vigor.

Disease Resistance and Stress Tolerance

Potassium (K) in Tomato and Vegetable Food serves a dual purpose by promoting not only plant strength but also disease resistance and stress tolerance. Plants fortified with potassium are better equipped to resist diseases, pests, and environmental stressors. This added resilience can lead to fewer problems in your garden and more consistent yields.

Slow-Release Formula

Another advantage of Tomato and Vegetable Food is its slow-release formula. Unlike fast-acting fertilizers that provide a quick nutrient surge followed by depletion, this slow-release formulation ensures a steady and sustained supply of essential nutrients over time. This gradual nutrient release minimizes the risk of overfeeding and ensures that your plants receive the right nutrients when they need them most.

Versatile Application

Whether you're cultivating tomatoes, peppers, squash, or any other vegetable in your garden, Tomato and Vegetable Food is a versatile choice. Its balanced nutrient composition caters to the needs of a wide range of vegetable plants, making it a convenient option for diverse gardens. You can use it for both in-ground and container gardening, making it suitable for various growing environments.

Environmentally Friendly

For gardeners who prioritize sustainability, Tomato and Vegetable Food is an environmentally friendly option. Its slow-release formula reduces nutrient runoff and minimizes the risk of water pollution. By choosing this product, you can contribute to more eco-conscious gardening practices.

Tomato and Vegetable Food in a 4-lb box offers a well-balanced and nutrient-rich solution to support your tomato and vegetable plants' growth and development. With enhanced fruit production, improved root growth, disease resistance, and stress tolerance, this fertilizer equips your garden for a successful and bountiful harvest. Its slow-release formula and versatility make it a valuable addition to any gardener's toolkit, ensuring that your garden thrives while also promoting sustainability and environmental responsibility.
