I bought a pack of the calucim and wetter, from an earlier newsletter, and has done wonders to my tomato crop, but alas no suitable weather, so not yet getting a ripened crop, they are tunnel grown and are over 8ft tall now, so I have had to start to layer them down as they are still going strong.I decided to try the calucim on my runner beans, and they too have gone from good to better, and I am the first to start cropping beans this year in my area, brilliant stuff.
