do you remove any leaves from your plants?
We have had widely varying opinions about this but my opinion is leaves need to be removed progressively as summer proceeds. A limit to the number of trusses allowed to set snd the tops nippped out. Side shoots need to be removed asap.
I have been eating tomatoes for a few weeks now.....some will say it is because I live in a warmer part of the UK...West Cornwall. I have tomatoes ripening every day and they now have very few leaves on the plants. I will not have any unripe tomatoes.
I never shade the glass,,always allow good ventilation and start removing lower leaves from early in the season.
so.....remove leaves that ahade the fruit
