Prevent Blossom End Rot At Planting Time
Blossom-end rot is a common issue that's caused by a calcium imbalance within the plant that can occur in tomatoes, as well as peppers, cucumbers, squash and melon fruits. To help prevent this, use 1-2 tablespoons of Gypsum in the soil at planting time.
Note: *Be sure to add a large tomato cage for much needed support. Remember to feed your tomatoes throughout the growing season with E.B. Stone Organic Tomato & Vegetable Food and water regularly. Best to feed every 6-8 weeks.
