I fertilized my tomatoes, green beans, and squash with Dr. Earth Home Grown Tomato and Herb fertilizer 2 weeks ago. We have been having heavy rains for the past 2 weeks. Since squash have such a short growing season, I wanted to ask how long I should wait to start doing compost teas/foliar sprays to continue to supply much needed nutrients as the summer season arises, temperatures rise, and it doesn’t rain as frequently? Also, in plants such as tomatoes and beans, how long should I wait to begin using a bloom fertilizer?

You can start right away doing compost teas & foliar sprays. No worries. You can start using Bud & Bloom Booster fertilizer now and through summer and can make our fertilizer tea with it as well! If you get a chance you should try our Liquids fertilizers in conjunction with our dry for the ultimate gardening experience!
