QUESTION: Should I use bone meal when planting tomatoes?
ANSWER: You can help supplement nutrition for your tomato plants by giving each hole you’ll place a plant into a dose of one cup of bone meal and one cup of kelp meal.
The kelp provides balanced nutrition and micronutrients, while the bone meal provides a boost in phosphorus, which aids in flowering and fruiting. Because these are slow release supplements, you only need to apply them once when you are planting your tomatoes.
