I remember seeing this video last year, but it has never been updated as a success/failure.
Did it work??

and the results please?

I feel that doing this will only make more growing points which will result in smaller fruit, not rocket science.

Scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Did this work out with an increased yield?

I'm determined to grow masses of tomatoes this year. Did okish last year but blight even in the greenhouse.
I'm making changes....to compost, to way I feed, to way I grow them, to the way I water them.
I'm sticking with Shirley.....ssh! That's another story.......but switching gardeners delight to Sungold.
Ive got tomato theory overwhelming me so, how can I go wrong?
( mind you, the best and most prolific tomato crop I ever grew was when I knew nothing and prob guessed everything)

Hi,
I have tried to watch 3 different videos without success even though I have adobe flash player 11 installed. All I can see is a blank whitespace where the video should be. Can anyone advise me on a workaround?

Hows the tomatoes coming along Verd?  fairygirls got some ripening. I think she must be next to a nuclear reactor.

My first attempt is coming along nicely. I wittled my plants down to 2x Black Cherry, 2x gardeners delight and 2x Tigarella. They went into grow pots in grow bags, 2 per growbag, and look good. The black cherry have been the most prolific and they have a set of fruit ripening already, the other have just had their first set of flowers. 

I've got autovents on the greenhouse so hopefully i should avoid the dreaded blight, not that i would know when i got it..

First big test though as we're off on holiday for 2 weeks.. hopeing my auto waterer does the job!

Hi elemental

Assuming you're using Internet Expolrer, I found that turning off Tracking Protection allowed me to see the videos - Click on the No Entry icon in the address bar and Turn Tracking Protection off. You can turn it back on again after the video to prevent annoying ads. Hope this helps.

Get yoursel an IPad. On a more serious note, has there been an update on the video showing the results of nursing the sideshoots method?

Commercial growers get fantastic tomato yields but they don't taste so good. Concentrate on quality

My tips would be make sure that you have good light with clean glass and you give excellent ventilation

I'm growing gardener's delight and the final growing position will be grow bags in the greenhouse. What sort of feed is best and what can I expect taste-wise? Last year I grew money maker and while they were nice and big, the taste was more bland than I was expecting.

Gardener's Delight are one of the best flavoured of the older varieties, so you should be in for a pleasant surprise.   Modern hybrid cherry-sized varieties like Sungold are sweeter and have more flavour too, but the seeds won't come true if you save them.

My top-tip for flavour is to avoid over-watering and over-feeding.  As our resident tomato expert Italiophile says, give them 'tough love' and they'll reward you!
