Feed your tomatoes (and other veggies) the natural, safe way! Tomato-tone® provides all the macro-nutrients your plants need to produce bumper crops all season long, with a guaranteed analysis of 3% Nitrogen, 4% Phosphorus, and 6% Potassium, plus an infusion of Bio-tone® beneficial microbes that help your plants absorb nutrients and fight off disease. This premium-grade fertilizer contains only nutrient-rich ingredients, with no sludge or fillers. And all this garden goodness comes from all-natural organic ingredients that are completely safe for animals and the environment, and are slow-release so that the nutrients will not 'burn' your plants.

The organic composition of Tomato-tone feeds your tomatoes what they need over time, developing more blooms and better tomatoes all season, as opposed to chemical-based fertilizers that produce an explosion of fruit growth, but at the expense of the plant's overall health. And your tomatoes will finish the season strong with Espoma's® signature blend of beneficial microbes, which aid plants' roots in absorbing nutrients and fighting off infection.

Tomato-tone® gives your tomatoes everything that they need, but is not intended as a general fertilizer. For general garden uses, try these other Espoma® organic fertilizers: Garden-Tone, Soil Acidifier, Holly-Tone, Bio-Tone Starter Plus, Super Phosphate, or Bulb-Tone. Tomato-tone® simply gives that extra pop of nutrients specific to tomato growth, but also useful for peppers, eggplant, and more.
