Bush cherry tomatoes
« on: August 08, 2018, 18:29:55 »
I have grown tumbler tomatoes in hanging baskets this year and yield has been quite good so far. I am not sure if I should trim back any unformed tomato stems to encourage larger growth in the small green tomatoes. Any thoughts?

Considering cutting back my basket toms.. Garten Pearle, Whippersnapper and so on and giving a nitrogen feed to see if  I can encourage new growth.. taking side shoot cuttings to raise new plants is also possible..

I've grown two baskets this year, one tumbling tom and one tumbling tom yellow.  Crops have been average.  I did not use The contents of a tomorite bag as I usually do, opting for ordinary compost instead and feeding tomorite once a week.  Most of the fruits have ripened now and i am going to leave them to finish off as we have had bumper crops of all the other varieties.  Been a really good year for Italian tomatoes grown outdoors in pots.    :blob7:
