High PK fertilizer- when and how to use
After browsing through old posts on this forum, it seems that people generally like to provide their tomatoes with high phosphorus and potassium fertilizer, but take it easy on the nitrogen.
In my garden we have a lot of fishmeal at our disposal, which I think is something like 6% Nitrogen but no more than 2% P and K. Also I've got field peas as a cover crop that will be turned under a few weeks before tomatoes are transferred to ground, and a fair amount of composted plant material.
So I think the plants will have plenty of nitrogen between the fish meal, cover crops, and liberal use of compost. Supposedly the soil around these parts is often deficient in P and K, however. Since I am required to use organic fertilizer, I was thinking about getting some Neptune's Harvest 0-10-10 concentrated organic liquid fertilizer, and simply watering the plants every few weeks with this stuff diluted as per instructions. Is this a good hassle-free way to provide my tomatoes with the P&K they need? Has anyone used it for tomatoes before? Will it make the soil too acid if I am not careful?
Also- do you think that the Neptune's 0-10-10 stuff would help seedlings out if diluted according to instructions, or perhaps even more diluted?
Advice is appreciated, as always!
