  1. a lot of people’s tomatoes get the blight when it rains. the soil splashes
    up on the leaves, and the problems begin. mulching keeps dirt from
    splashing up.
    i think it takes a long time for eggshells to be ‘edible’ by tomato plants.
    love your videos, man! thank you.


  2. What if they have fruit? I always heard to remove it. Is this best?


  3. Love your videos. Great time to buy plants from nurseries. Good to know.
    Thanks!


  4. Another growing guide for you all, If there is any other growing guides,

  5. Why did you get so many thumbs down? I thought your info was great! 


  6. Good info. Thanks!


  7. Very good growing guide Luke. Thank you for sharing!

  8. Excellent info, Luke! That tomato plant responded to your TLC in record
    time! I love leaf compost – esp the way it brings in the worms!


  9. I give my tomatoes WHEY from my greek yogurt making. Mulching with thin
    layers of organic grass clippings helps with the splash back from the soil.
    Plus, worms love the grass clippings, then POOP and fertilize my tomatoes.
    After all this then I PRAY I DON’T GET BLIGHT. :0)

  12. Is your preferred method for altering soil Ph after the crop is in to add
    something to the water or to amend the soil around the plant? I’m assisting
    in a charity garden and have this situation now with many plants that are
    already in.

    Can you tell me about your thoughts on caging tomatoes? My experience is
    that the standard cages are pretty pointless once the height of width of
    the plant exceed the support of the cage, or the fruit becomes so heavy and
    it rips the branches right off the plant. I’ve used the Ultimato product
    with more success but it still seems an issue.

    What do you think of the “Horizontal” planting method in which the same
    amount of plant is buried but not 12+ inches straight down rather laying
    the plant on it’s side and keeping the entire massive root system 6″ down?
    So far so good on my end.

    What is the minimum amount of soil for growing tomatoes in a container? I’m
    using 8 gallon bags and I’ve had good plants in the past just never get
    bumper crops. What kind of mix do you have good results with when using a
    container? I transplanted my peppers and tomatoes into your mix, and then
    into the bags of nearly all compost. t. I’m wondering if that is going to
    be too rich of a nitrogen environment as you stated that may stunt fruit
    production. So does the nitrogen in compost get depleated enough from
    planting to 4th of July that I can use a normal amount of phosphorus or do
    you think I need to add an even higher amount of phosphorus to balanance
    the higher nitrogen still in the compost?

    Do you do regular periodic preventitive treatments like Neem, Baking soda
    or aspirin for tomatoes?


  13. Watering seems like a simple topic, but I read an article in Urban farming(
    about stressing tomatoes for better taste and nutritional content) that
    Commercial growers water their plants once initially by flooding the area,
    then once again a month later. How is that even possible when if I water a
    plant too late in the day it seems to crack all over the place?


  14. Nice informative video great tips :)


  15. Thanks for sharing the great tips.

    What is a good source of organic Potassium?


  16. Thanks for the info! I planted my first square foot garden (following the
    book to the T – 1ft spacing, 6in depth) this year and I feel that my
    tomatoes are stressed – flowers falling off, blight, low yield, etc. My
    experience has me questioning the square foot gardening method in general.


  17. Thanks for the information Luke. :)


  18. Lovely update can you use normal cooking or table salt as I do not have
    Epsom salt have a blessing of a week


  19. Excellent tips for growing tomatoes, Luke! I’m always interested to hear
    how other gardeners approach things even when it’s different from my
    approach. The important thing is to have healthy productive tomato plants.


  20. Hey mate how is the pumpkin challenge going. Would have loved to taken part
    but could not get any seeds. Could you send me some of your pumpkin seeds
    if you get any from your giant? I would love to use some for next year, but
    Holland’s Giant Pumpkins could not send me any due to customs. Would gladly
    send you some tomatoe seeds you might not have.
    Cheers David. 


  21. What is the fertilizer you mentioned that you give after the. 4th. What
    source can we use for tomatoes? I had that exact problem last year. I had
    an abundance of a plant but little fruit. I also would like to express my
    appreciation! You have been a main inspiration for my garden this year.
    Thank you !!


  22. Hi wanted to let you know that my Ox heart tomato’s are doing great & the
    leaf miners have just stopped attacking… My plants are 8inchs, healthy &
    already starting to get out flowers 😀 . I got a few questions if you dont
    mind too. I bought a Tomato Grow Bag & im gonna use a Botanico Tomato Cage.
    What i wanted to know please if i have to try & tie the tomato branches
    also? I was only gonna tie the stem. Because im worried that the friut
    would be so heavy in the future that they can break the branches. I have
    read that Indeterminate tomatoes will grow and produce fruit until killed
    by frost.
    My tomatos are Indeterminate ones(i live were it never snows) will they
    still die for me if i keep them in the shed in winter. It shouldnt get
    colder then 5C. Or will it keep living & making fruit? Thanks :)


  23. hey bro, is it better to buy tomatoes plants that has already been growing
    or its better to grow your own? and if to buy is better how do you know its
    organic? and when buying or growing what else you need to buy for the plant
    one time to help it grow?


  24. Is it possible to grow a tomato plant from a glass jar?


  25. MABY someday i can make the grow boxes love looking at them
