Nutrients


Plant the seedlings in pots, and poke a few holes to prevent water stagnation. Tomatoes need at least 8 hours of direct sunlight, and you should water them in the morning and in the evening. Transfer the seedlings to soil beds after a month. The holes should be about 20-24 inches, and make sure they are spaced by three feet.

Fish heads (nitrogen)

Nitrogen in fish heads is important. Use fish heads, fish tails, fish guts, fish waste and pretty much all kings of seafood waste.

Aspirin for strong immunity

Willow water is made from the bark of willow tree. Soak pieces of bark in some hot water, and use it after a few days. Before planting your cuttings, soak them in willow water for 24 days. Keep your willow water in the fridge.

Eggshells and calcium

The lack of calcium will result in rotten plants. Crush 3-4 eggshells, and add them to the hole.

Bone meal (phosphorus)

Phosphorus stimulates the growth of your plants. Bone meal is an excellent addition. You need a handful of this product.
