tomato side shoots

Posted: 03/06/2013 at 19:36

my Tom plants appear to be splitting into two stems after the 1st oTruss,leaving me undecided which is a side shoot and which is the main stem do I leave them alone or do I pinch out what I think is a side shoot.

had to replace a few panes earlier this year, large panes were  £3 00,so assuming all 24 panes are large  you should be paying approximately £72, or less if some panes are smaller, go direct to your local glaziers cut out any middlemen

Hi flower bird,

bit early where I live (nottingham) don't plant my bedding out before 1st week in June if you are further south you will be a few days ahead of us but not that many,would be safer to wait until the end of may or better still early June,better safe than sorry.

nice plants.

For a profusion of flowers try cascade and jack shahan, or swing time / marinka and Eva boerg

try layering, expose a piece of stem by slicing with a Stanley knife place slightly under the soil and either place a brick on top or peg down,provided the stem is in contact with the soil it will produce new roots, you can do one/two or more at the same time.

I have a very old stove which burns scrap wood in the day (needs constant attention otherwise goes out, and a few bits of coal to keep it going thro the night).
The chimney is vented to the outside,minimal cost, maximum return.
A safety guard is necessary to safeguard young children.
