Touted as a good choice for busy people, the EarthBox uses a 2. EarthBox is not limited to determinate, or bush, tomatoes, giving you a wider choice of cultivars. Location Place your EarthBox where the tomatoes will receive plenty of warm sun, at least six hours of direct sun a day. This will encourage the best growth and fruit set. You also need adequate air circulation around the plants to help prevent diseases.

Evenly spread 2 cubic feet of the potting mix into the EarthBox and soak it thoroughly with water, allowing excess water to drain before planting. Leave the soil level 1 to 2 inches below the rim of the EarthBox, to provide room for the mulch cover or plastic sheet that helps retain moisture, reduce weeds and prevent the fertilizer strip from washing or blowing away.

Water and Nutrients With the self-contained EarthBox, you only need to add fertilizer and lime at the time of planting. Mix 1 pound Dolomite or lime containing calcium and magnesium into your soilless potting mix. For fertilizer, use an analysis such as , , or 6, and place a 2-cup synthetic or 3-cup organic fertilizer strip, mixed into the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil, on the container-side opposite the tomato plants.

Do not use slow-release fertilizer. Keep the water reservoir under the box filled throughout the season to provide all the water necessary for your tomato plants. Do not water through the top of the EarthBox.

Planting EarthBox recommends growing two tomato plants per box, one early variety and one late, where conditions permit, to extend your growing season. Choose strong, healthy tomato plants when buying or start your seeds inside, six to eight weeks before the last frost date. Bury the stems of your plants up to the lower leaves of the plants into the soil.
