Default European based fertilizers I'm using this year

All these products came from England or Europe.

Keep us posted Ami, I will be very interested to hear your results.

I have used the Maxicrop seaweed extract before and find it to be a good product (not based on scientific testing or anything just that it seems good!)

I also have the same bottle of Ecoworm tomato fert, but haven't used it yet, definitely will as the season progresses.

maf, this is the third year I have been using and completely satisfied.

Go to the www.biotabs.eu site for some interesting reading. It is new and should be showing up in the US in the near future. I'm using the tabs both in the ground and in containers.

An interesting assortment of organic products Ami.
Most of these are new to your program this year?

Our local hydro store carries some.The site even declares almost "world wide shipping" for most items.

Clara, when you bring up the Amazon UK site do a search for "Tomato fertilizer".

gosh darnoodley, some of those are really expensive. In general anything with organic and liquid in the name seems to be worth gold.

Azet Tomatendunger is a perennial for me whether I'm growing in soil or containers. I sent Raybo a box to try with his Earth Tainers and he was very pleased with the results. Unfortunately it is not available in the US.

Yeah, that's the stuff I am using for my toms, cukes & peppers as well as for the eggplant - it was the mention of mycchorizes that impressed me. So far, I have been very pleased. I am curious if the taste differs from those that were grown with horsemanure (I loved them last year and would happily recommend horsepower to any gardener, but I wanted to try something different )

Auf Englisch:

It's a pity if it's not available in the US, but I am sure there are similar ones in the American brands - based on what I have been reading here, there is a wealth of organic stuff in the States. If not available in every local shop, at least easily found on-line.

Speaking of horsemanure last year at our garden center I found pelletised horse manure and bought a bag for my surrogate garden at work. The plants really loved the stuff. Used it again this year as well.

Thanks for the link, Ami! I have used horse manure (not pelletized) in the past years, but also pelletized cow manure - no difference for me.

The cow pellets are much cheaper than the horse pellets, so if you have a Thomas Philipps shop nearby, please have a look at it.

Got a box sitting in the garage from Thomas Philipps which is about 3 K's from the house.
