With so many different brands of tomato food on the market these days, it is difficult to know which one to choose!
Liquid Tomato Food Best Brands
Here are a few of the best selling and popular brands available:
They include, Tomorite which is a very popular tomato food from Levington and Vitax which is a well known brand that sells a number of nutrient products.
The above are all liquid tomato feeds and easy to dilute in water.
Dry Tomato Food Best Buy
One brand that has been popular over the years is Chempak Standard Tomato Food and was voted Best Buy by Which.
This is a dry, soluable feed that contains calcium (liquid feeds usually don’t) and is very highly rated in trials of tomato food brands.
However, so much depends on the amount of sunshine we get during the summer. This effects the taste of our tomatoes a lot, so it can be difficult to compare one season’s feed with another because the weather can be so different.
To be honest, I don’t think there is much difference between the liquid brands as long as the feed is given correctly – in the right amount at the right frequency. This may mean feeding less, more regularly than the recommended amount. In other words, half strength twice as often.
Tomato plants always do best when they receive nutrients regularly but overfeeding can cause problems.
All of the above tomato food brands will produce good results – especially in a good summer!
