  • What fertilizer should I use in my Earthboxes?

    Created by Nan Aitel-Thompson on

    I need a dry fertilizer substitute for my Earthbox. I don’t like the fertilizer that it comes with and it’s not 100% organic. Can you help?

    Hi Nan –

    I’ve been using the Dr. Earth Tomato, Vegetable & Herb Fertilizer in my Earthboxes that last several growing seasons with great success. I also include a little bone meal in my tomato boxes to prevent blossom end rot. Give it a try… I think you’ll be happy with the results!

    Hope it helps!

    I replanted last year using Espoma Organic Garden Lime (turns Hydrangeas Pink for the visual reference) and Espoma 10/10/10 Garden Food.
    Would be more than glad to add a picture, but don’t know how to do it.
