For Arlene

I wrote about picking out the side shoots on my tomato plants in the last post. Here's a link to a video on how to do that very thing.

And here's another.

I've been pinching out the side shoots every day. It's surprising how fast they grow.

Hope this clarifies everything, Arlene.



  1. Thanks for that Mum, very useful.

  2. and we always found that there was always one we missed until it was about a foot tall!

  3. I'm growing hanging basket tomatoes this year so am not worried about side shoots, but next year I am armed with the knowledge so thank you x

  4. Thank you so much for that advice and the 2 videos really helped me clear up which bits need to be taken off the plant. I appreciate your help very much. Thanks again for your excellent help! Arlene from NJ (US)
