Adding Fertilizer during growing season
« on: June 11, 2018, 03:32:33 pm »
This is my first year using EarthBox.  So far I am very happy with the results!!  I used the fertilizer strip when setting up my boxes 2 months ago.  I've noticed that my peppers are looking a little yellow in the leaves like they need some iron or fertilizer.  I am wondering if people have a proven fertilizer boost they add on a regular basis for their veggies.   Thanks for the information.

1 tsp calcium nitrate every 7 to 10 days will provide that needed nutrient boost. This has been affectionately called "The Snack"
Why Google, when you have me?
