Did you know that tomatoes tend to perform best when you plant from starters? Seeds can be started indoors and then transplanted two to three weeks after the last frost. Transplants also tend to bear more fruit than if started directly from seed. Take care when transplanting – plant the root ball a couple of inches below grade as this will help strengthen the stalk.

Did you know that you should prune stake tomatoes so only one main stalk is left? Prune by removing all suckers that are below the first fruiting cluster. This provides more energy for the plant to produce fruit. This is an especially important tip for beginning gardeners as not pruning can lead to disappointment in the amount of fruit grown. Let suckers that grow above the first fruiting cluster remain – but remove all but two leaves. This will provide shade to the fruit.
