I have a raised bed 4’ x 6’. It was recommended that I mix a bag of Vegetable Garden Planting Mix in with the existing soil. I would like to know if that mix contains fertilizer. If not, when should I begin fertilizing and what fertilizer do you recommend for tomatoes and eggplant?

Our Home Grown Vegetable Planting Mix does contain soil amendments/fertilizer and has about a 30 day charge, but we do highly recommend that you use our Home Grown Dry fertilizer when first planting new seedlings to really maximize your yields of your veggies in your raised garden beds. I also encourage you trying our Liquid Home Grown as well and use in conjunction with our dry for the ultimate growing experience!  First mix Home Grown Vegetable Planting Mix, mix into raised bed, dig holes for veggies apply dry Home Grown fertilizer, then water it in with Home Grown Liquid fertilizer. Your garden will love this combo!
