Adding Calcium Nitrate
« on: April 28, 2020, 01:34:05 am »
I'm in central Texas and have had good success with Earthbox tomatoes using the Earthbox planting medium, fertilizer and dolomite.  I occasionally have a not too serious problem with blossom end rot, and when I see it developing, I begin treatment with calcium nitrate (the Snack).  My question is, should or could I begin treatment with the Snack well before fruit appears or should I always wait until I see the problem developing.  I'd rather not lose any tomatoes to blossom end rot.

Thanks

I'd start before flowering
Why Google, when you have me?
