The Q&A Archives: Starting Tomato Seeds

Question: I plan on starting several types of tomatoes from seed. I am purchasing your "Tomato Seed Starter" soil. Has that have enough nutrients in it to sustain the seedlings or should I still use Miracle Gro?

Answer: Seedlings don't require fertilizer until they produce a second set of "true" leaves. (The first set of leaves are seed leaves and are somewhat rounded.) After two sets of true leaves develop, the seedlings will benefit from dilute solutions of fertilizer with each watering. (I dilute Miracle-Gro to one-quarter strength and feed my seedlings everytime I water, in place of plain water.)
