Directions for use

Directions for planting in garden beds:

  1. Water plants thoroughly before planting and allow to drain.
  2. Add a layer of mix to the planting area.
  3. Dig a hole, approximately twice the depth and width of the root ball of your plant.
  4. Gently loosen the root ball of your plant and position in the centre of the hole.
  5. Fill in with Tui Tomato Mix.
  6. Press soil gently around the base of the plant.
  7. Water your plant well and continue to water regularly.

Directions for planting in pots and containers:

  1. Water plants thoroughly before potting and allow to drain.
  2. Half fill your container with Tui Tomato Mix.
  3. Gently take the plant from the current container, loosen the root ball and remove any loose or dead plant material and roots.
  4. Position the plant in the centre of the new container and fill with Tui Tomato Mix up to 3cm from the top.
  5. Gently firm the mix around the base of the plant. The mix should be at the same level on the plant as it was in the previous container.
  6. Water your plant well and continue to water regularly.

Stake your tomatoes when planting to provide support and avoid damaging the roots later on.

As your tomatoes grow remove the laterals to encourage bigger and better fruit. Laterals are the shoots that grow out from the side of the stem.
