Vital Nutrients for the Best Fruits

Given our current high summer temperatures and excessive heat, we recommend holding off on fertilizer until it gets cooler (below 90°F). Fertilizing in temperatures above 90°F will push new growth that will not have a chance to harden off before getting burned by our intense sun. 

While we don’t recommend fertilizing plants during our excessive heat, plant starts can benefit from diluted vitamin and mineral supplements, such as SUPERthrive®, Fox Farm’s Bush Doctor® Boomerang®, or any of our kelp/seaweed supplements. Click the button below to learn more about these vital nutrients and other ways you can help keep your plants free from heat-stress!

Vital Nutrients

Tomato Growing with Red Tomato CageOnce the temperatures cool, we recommend the following fertilizers for superior fruits and yields:

To amend your soil for in-ground planting, we recommend SummerWinds Natural & Organic Planting Mix or Happy Frog® Soil Conditioner by FoxFarm. For containers, SummerWinds Organic Potting Soil or Strawberry Fields® Potting Soil by FoxFarm.

Protect your tender plant starts from the heat with shade cloth—available by the foot. With our current summer temperatures and periods of excessive heat, it's critical to grow your tomato plant starts in a shaded environment and water them as needed.
