    What is the best fertilizer to use for tomatoes and how often should you apply it?

    Tomatoes are heavy feeders and need a steady diet of water and nutrients. I use Espoma Tomato Tone because I am an organic gardener. I start side dressing when tomatoes have formed and then repeat every 2-3 weeks. Dig a small trench around  each plant 4-5 inches from the stem and add 2-3 tablespoons per plant. Do not get any fertilizer on the stem or leaves. Cover the fertilizer with 1-2 inches of soil and water.
