One of my Tomato plants has done something odd.
It looks as though it has grown a branch but forgotten to send a main stem shoot upwards from the node. It grows up from the ground, has a branch off the the left, goes up a bit more and then turns right and has formed a branch, but there is no top to it, no cluster of leaves growing any further in any direction, just the leaves on the 2 branches getting a bit bigger.
The other 17 plants are doing fine (one seems to be splitting into 2 main stems about 4 feet up), some are almost to the tops of the cane support I built when I put them in the growbags but this one has fallen way behind and seems to have forgotten how to grow. Is that normal, or has something eaten the growing shoot?
For anyone wondring - yes I sowed the seeds fairly late so they are well behind most people's, I think I see some buds forming on a couple of the larger ones though.
