How To Grow World Record Tomatoes

Charles H. Wilber


Also available at:

 A bestseller for Acres U.S.A., this book captures the tactics of growing giant tomato plants. 

For most of his 80+ years, Charles Wilber studied how to best work with nature. In How to Grow World Record Tomatoes he tells his personal story and offers his philosophy and approach to gardening. He reveals for the first time how he grows record-breaking tomatoes and produce of every variety. There's no magic involved. Just a well thought out system that gives plants more than they could ever want, and makes it possible for them to reach their full potential.

Wilber's compost is the cornerstone along with a wide circumference around plants layered with compost, alfalfa meal and mulch. Valuable pruning and watering details are given, too, as well as a new way of looking at seeds. As you will learn, growing awesome tomatoes integrates every aspect of gardening that you can imagine.

Includes photos and clear instructions.

Problems with a recent order of DVDs

From: Ronald Fournier Subject: Problem - Re: A shipment from order #32559 has been delivered Date: September 30, 2021 at 11:45:21 ADT To: Acres USA I ordered the items below. The enveloppe (should have been a box) arrived thorn open at my local post office. They put it in a plastic bag until I came to pick it up. There was only one DVD left inside, the 2019 Eco-Ag keynotes. The other two were absent. I just tried calling the number indicated in your email, but it seems I’m blocked out, calling from Canada. Am truly disappointed that the package was not more secure and that it could be so easily thorn open and 2 DVDs lost, which represents over $50 USD. How come I can’t even reach you by phone from Canada? I was contemplating to resubscribe to Acres USA monthly publication (I got it for several years in the past, even attended and sang at the 1998 Convention in Minneapolis. Now, given this incident, I’m not sure if I should proceed. Ronald On Sep 28, 2021, at 20:24, Acres USA wrote: Shipment Delivered Hey Ronald, The below items from your order have now been delivered.
