Feeding Chemical Fertilizers
When choosing a fertilizer, be sure that you know the type you need. First you should use feed that is meant for vegetables such as tomatoes. Now you need the one for your specific goal. For lush foliar growth development, a higher ratio of Nitrogen(N) is neccesary. Use a powerful vegetive feed like 28-14-14 or 30-10-10. Notice the N ratio. Other numbers are fine as long as the ratios are similar. They also contain all of the necessary micronutrients needed for this stage.
