This 3-part tomato hydroponic food is precisely formulated for using in a hydroponic system and was developed at the old Hydroponicum in Achiltibuie. It provides all the nutrients needed for healthy plant growth: full details of constituents are given on each bottle label. This tomato hydroponic food comes in a either a dry powder form or as a liquid concentrate; the powder must be dissolved to a 5 litre batch of concentrate before using, for which full instructions are given. Some of the powders can be a bit tricky to fully dissolve, so we recommend that if you are not comfortable with this, you might prefer to order the liquid concentrate.
We supply instructions giving amounts of the concentrates to use for each stage of plant growth; the instructions for use can also be downloaded here. These should be used as a general guide, but please remember that weather conditions will influence your plants’ growth and you may need to adjust the feeding rate accordingly. To provide all essential plant nutrients, Parts A & B are always both used at all stages of plant growth. Part C is used until first fruits have set. If you’d like advice or help with using our tomato feed, please contact us.
The Achiltibuie Garden 3-part Tomato hydroponic feed gives great results for tomatoes, courgettes, melons and other high-yielding fruiting plants. For other plants such as salads, herbs, strawberries or houseplants, you’ll get good results by using our General purpose feed.
The feeds are available as a set (parts A, B and C) or individually. You’ll probably find after one season that you need to re-stock parts A & B, so a set is also available comprising 2 sachets or bottles of A and 1 of B.
