Description & Specification
Levington tomorite giant planter with seaweed is bigger than the standard growing bag. This allows for easier watering and water control, root growth and produces bigger, fuller flavoured yields. Give the bag a good shake, this helps to evenly distribute the compost and make sure any compacted lumps are broken down.
Cut along the dotted lines of the panels you want to use. If you are only planting two plants, use the end panels. After planting, water when necessary using about 6 L to keep the planter moist. Watering needs to be kept as regular as possible. Avoid piercing the bottom of the planter, to stop the nutrients from being washed straight out. Be careful of over watering and flooding the planter.
Train plants to fan out, this will help them to soak up as much sunlight as possible and allow a air flow to pass through. Make sure that you add in support canes and tie in the stems.
Keep an eye out for signs of pests, make sure you treat them straight away by using an edible crop friendly pesticide. Make sure you read the label before you purchase, as not all pesticides can be used on edible crops.
Delay planting tomatoes until the first flowers open. Use from January to December. Feed with Tomorite, add 20 ml to 4.5 L of water, twice a week for crops growing outside and once a week for those being grown inside a glass greenhouse.
