That’s right, garden through the seasons with dozens of vegetable- and fruit-specific growing guides. Start with your favorites or learn to love something new (Asian greens or fruit trees, anyone?).

Whether you need to know the best vegetables to grow in the shade or the top gardening tips for soil health in winter, this book has it all.

Tomato & Veg Formula 2-4-2: Quart

This is a perfect fertilizer for your tomatoes, vegetables, and more. Made from fresh fish, seaweed, molasses, yucca extract, and humic acids, this formula was uniquely designed for plants with intense growth or “vegging” stages.

The Tomato & Veg Formula increases stalk and stems mass, resulting in higher yields and providing necessary nutrients to keep your plants vigorous with strong root zones and lush foliage, increasing their tolerance to various diseases, temperatures, and drought.

Directions: Apply every 1-2 weeks. Prepare for one application only. Do not store diluted fertilizer.

Lawns: Use 1-gallon concentrate mixed with sufficient water to cover 8000 sq. ft. Feed monthly during the growing season and again in the fall.

Compost Enhancer: Use ¼ Cup (2fl. Oz.) per gallon of water every 2-3 weeks.

Seed Germination: Soak in a solution of 1 teaspoon per cup of water.
