Q and A: tomato leaves turning white and adding calcium to tomato plants — 4 Comments

  1. Cindy,

    Yes, some folks do that; others bury crushed egg shells beneath their tomatoes. But without adequate watering you’ll still get blossom end rot.

  2. Margie,

    We leave the plants in the WOWs until they are growing out of the tops. Past that and we feel it’s a waste of time and WOWs to leave them on longer.

  3. I don’t know if it is my imagination or not, but someone had told me to use powdered milk for calcium. It always seems to help my tomato rot. Just sprinkle some on the ground under the plant and water or wait for rain.

  4. This may sound silly but how long do you leave your plants in the Wall O Waters and what is that. I’ve seen pictures you have but still not sure. I grew up in North East Texas and anything would grow. I’m now near Houston Texas and cant get nothing to grow, it rains and floods, my next step is raised beds until we can move back up north one day.
