Tomorite substitute?

madpenguinmadpenguin Isle of WightPosts: 2,422
My Mum has asked me to get her some Tomorite for her single tomato plant.
Current times mean my choice of shops are limited and the supermarket had none.
Online prices are too much for a single plant.
Is there a substitute that I could get her?

    Have you got a co-op to try?

    I got westland Gro-Sure Tomato feed from them for a fiver a litre.

    Online was a rip-off when I last looked.

    I actually went to the Co-op today and they didn't have any.
    Now found some Tomorite online so Mum and her tomato plant should be OK!!!
    Price a bit steep but not overly so.In these times we sometimes have to pay more as we can't get out and about  :/

    Is the pound shop open? 
    I’ve bought it there in the past, or Wilco, or B & M.

    Tesco had Tomorite last weekend, if all shops sell the same stuff. It was in the ambient food part if I recall. £3.50.
  • I've bought the Wilko version with just as good results as Tomorite
