How tall should they be before putting them into growbags?
Don't plant until you see the flowers forming.

How about using the growbag compost as a general purpose compost when potting on veg?
Nothing wrong with it-in the days when everything was peat it was just a rougher grade.
You could always buy growbags on offer in the past and it was a cheap way of buying compost- especially if you could pick up split ones-not quite sure if that is the case now as I don't use grow-bags any more but pot tomatoes into the big pots used by florists.
Last year i grew tomato's in a grow bag but i couldn't support the plants and in the end they broke. Last year i also used pots and they worked much better. So this year i am just going to use pots so i don't lose any plants this year.
when and how do I remove some of the side shoots please
You remove the side shoots when you can see them-they should just come away.
help my cherry toms leaves have got brown speckels on most of the leaves whats the mater with them they are just starting to get their flowers on what have i done wrong they are in a hanging basket
Just reading back on this thread! I wonder how the person got on that planted 3 seeds direct in a grow bag!(in november)
My tomatoes are 2 ft talland have 2 lots of flowers, i wouldnt give much hope for seeds just sown, they wont have long enough warm
Light days to ripen.
i planted tomatoes in greenhouse in april had yellow flowers appear but no fruit when should toms appear
Hi Marie, they should start soon, I planted my seeds about March so they are a month ahead and full of fruit. Got one red one..yippee (just praying we dont get blight).
Re grow bags, I grew peppers in them last year (first time I have used a grow bag) and also grew some in pots. Pots every time for me, the growbag plants were very stunted but the potted ones were fine!
