Advantages: Seems effective in promoting healthy growth
Disadvantages: It's more expensive than some other brands
Actually you don't spray it - it's important not to get it on the foliage!
For the last couple of years we have been growing tomatoes in the greenhouse, with mixed results.
In Year 1 the tomatoes were very small and I didn't start feeding them until too late, I was later told. You ought to start when the first truss of fruit has set.
Last season I bought some Tomorite from our local garden centre (a 1 litre bottle for £2.99 - had to go back 6 weeks later and buy another) and the results were a lot better. Mind you, I was a bit more conscientious at looking after them as well, but the liquid feed was certainly doing its stuff.
At the recommended dilution a one litre bottle lasted me for about 50 watering cans full @ 5 litres capacity, so it is likely to prove more cost effective to buy the larger 2.5 litre size and depending on the number of plants you have, this could last you the full season.
I love it when it gets to the stage where you can count all your teeny tiny tomatoes and watch them grow big enough to eat - and of course they do taste much better than shop bought ones - all growers say that.
Tomorite is a concentrated liquid that you have to dilute according to the instructions (measure included) and use as a feed for your tomato plants. You can use it for other plants too but I used mine just for my toms and, later in the season for some chilli pepper plants which were a great success, keeping a watering can especially for it in the greenhouse.
It's a brown colour and is full of nutrients, carefully balanced to ensure that your plants get all the goodness they need to grow and prosper.
In this country especially, your plants need a bit of help and it pays to use a good quality growing medium rather than a cheap grow bag. To optimise your crop, your greenhouse should be well sited to get plenty of sun and the plants do need checking every day. They don't like it if you let them dry out.
Summary: Good value
