G&B Bone Meal is another essential component to our planting hole recipe. Bone meal is high in calcium, a very important nutrient for tomato plants. Without adequate calcium, tomato fruits develop Blossom End Rot (BER). BER causes a black spot on the blossom end of the fruit, and imparts a terrible flavor, rendering the fruit inedible. It's hard to have too much calcium, so don't skimp on the bone meal. Egg shells also contain calcium, although they are not a sufficient source alone--we use bone meal and egg shells!
