I’ll be planting up some window boxes and baskets shortly and will be adding some slow release granular feed to the compost. If I feed them later on in the summer with tomato plant food would they benefit any more from this or would it instead be too much feed for them? Best wishes and thanks.

Slow release fertilizers are designed to last several months and additional feeding is not likely to be needed.

But if you think the plants are slowing down and looking a bit hungry later in summer, use a general purpose liquid feed, such as Miraclegrow or similar.
