How to useGive the bag a good shake, this will help 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.
Delay planting tomatoes until the first flowers open. Make sure that you add in support canes and tie in the stems.
Watering: After planting, water in using about 6 litres and then water as necessary to keep the bag moist. This planter requires less frequent watering than smaller grow bags.
Feeding: We recommend feeding 20ml of Levington Tomorite Concentrated Liquid Tomato Food in 4.5 litres of water. Use 4.5 litres of diluted Levington Tomorite Concentrated Liquid Tomato Food for most crops, use once a week for heavy feeders such as tomatoes under glass.
Avoid piercing the bottom of the planter, as this will stop the nutrients from being washed straight out, but 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 a good air flow to pass through.
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.
