    I bought a pack of the calcium and wetter, from an earlier newsletter, and has done wonders to my tomato crop, but alas no suitable weather, so not yet getting a ripened crop, they are tunnel grown and are over 8ft tall now, so I have had to start to layer them down as they are still going strong.
    I decided to try the calcium on my runner beans, and they too have gone from good to better, and I am the first to start cropping beans this year in my area, brilliant stuff.

      Hi Harold,
      I’m pleased you’ve found the calcium a success – I’ve been using it for the past few seasons and it has made a big difference to the health of my plants.

      Hi Alan,
      They are good as a slow release calcium additive but they need to be added at the beginning of the season because they take a while to break down into the soil.
      If you are concerned about blossom end rot, you need to foliar spray with calcium such as Chempak Calcium.
      Regards,

    I have found some old Tomorite feed in my greenhouse and rather than waste it I watered it down and fed the plants, I’m now concerned about the use by date if there is one, which has been lost in the recycle bin.Is it possible to poison plants with out of date feed.

      Hi Joseph,
      I’m not sure, but if you are concerned, you could flush the soil with a good amount of slightly warmed water – then let it drain out of course. Adding a very small drop of washing-up liquid to the water also helps to remove unwanted chemicals or nutrient build-up from the soil.
      Regards,
      Nick
