Organic Soil Sweetener and Blossom End Rot Block
Most Potting Mixes are formulated using Sphagmum Peat moss. Sphagnum is naturally very acidic, with a pH of 3.5-4.5. (High acidity means the same as low pH.) which causes the nutrients to be ‘locked” into the mix and unavailable to your plants. Tomato plants prefer a pH of 6.0 to 6.8. If you see a black spot on the bottom of your tomatoes or peppers, they most likely have blossom end rot because your plant isn’t able to get the calcium it needs. Our Dolomite “sweetens” the potting mix and allows your plants to get all the nutrients they need and packs a whopping punch of calcium for tomatoes. Use one bag of Organic Soil Sweetener and Blossom End Rot Block per GrowBox™. *** Use in addition to our Nutrient Patch™, this is not a substitute for fertilizer. ***
★★★★★ Make Sure You Use It Correctly
By Patricia Schieber
This spring I used these in my Grow Boxes but did not winterize the soil last fall with it as well. This season I have had some blossom end rot on my tomatoes and peppers. Last year I used it both fall and spring and had no blossom end rot at all. I will not make the mistake of only using it in the spring again. When used as suggested it works great….no blossom end rot at all!
