Calcium Nitrate?

Danielnc84(7b)April 10, 2013

What is Calcium Nitrate used for and how often should it be used? what are the pros and cons of using it?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I grow tomatoes in Earthbox containers and use it almost weekly during my long growing season. It is a water soluable nonorganic source of calcium and nitrogen. At two tomato plants per Earthbox, I typically add a teaspoon down the watering tube once weekly from plant out.

At planting time, I will include 2 cups dolomite lime and a cup to a cup and a half of 10-10-10 fert.
