How to Use Gro-Sure Tomato planters
- Shake the planter to loosen the compost and ensure an even depth. Choose a suitable spot with plenty of light
- Gro-Sure® Tomato Planter is ideal for greenhouses, patios, conservatories and even roof top plantings
- Cut around the dotted lines on the front of the planter to make 3 holes
- Make a hole in the compost sufficient for the root ball of the plant and firm in the compost around the plant
- Water the planter and ensure the compost is moist
- Store in a dry frost free space away from weedkillers and other garden chemicals
- Keep planter sealed until it is required for use
- Keep compost moist. Water every day in hot weather to prevent drying out
- If necessary, cut some holes in the bottom of the planter to avoid water logging
- Use Gro-Sure® Tomato Food when the first flower truss appears and re-feed every 2-3 waterings
- Carefully place a cane (or use string and supports) in the compost to support the plant as it grows
Blossom End Rot
- Black, sunken areas on fruit
- Cause: Calcium deficiency, uneven watering, root damage or excess Nitrogen.
- Advice: Keep the soil consistently moist and use Gro-Sure Tomato food or Big Tom.
Flower Drop before fruit set
- Few flowers form or they drop before setting fruit
- Cause: Temperatures (night time too high/low & daytime, too high) drought stress, too little sun.
- Advice: Usually resolved when temperatures improve.
Cracks in fruit
- Cracked skin on the tomatoes
- Cause: Uneven watering or allowing the grow bag to dry out
- Advice: Follow label advice for regular watering/feeding, in hot conditions provide humidity/mulch areas to help retain moisture
Yellow, distorted curled leaves
- As above, leaf distortion, yellowing and curling of edges
- Cause: Could be Aphids–check underside of leaves/new growth.
- Advice: For Aphids use a suitable pest control such as Resolva Bug Killer or Resolva Natural Power
