Grow larger stronger plants and bigger tomatoes

by Brenda Wolfe

Stake your plant .......Sucker your tomato plants. To do this- after each branch has started growing from the plant, there will be a small growth where the branch meets the plant. When this occurs pinch the new growth from each stem, you will have to do this several times as the plant grows.

When you sucker tomato plants the plant will grow taller and stronger and you will have larger tomatoes. The tomato plants will not be as bushy and the nutrition will go to the main branches and tomatoes.
