Our tomato plants are out of control. They have out grown the cages and are taking over the garden. What can we do?
Rate This FAQ
Tomato plants keep growing for a variety of reasons. 1) variety Daterminate type tomatoes are smaller and are bushy, while indeterminate keep growing and get much larger. And within the indeterminate varieties, some grow much larger than others 2) Nitrogen fertilizer makes the tomato plant grow lots of green, but it will produce fewer tomatoes.
Make sure you keep nitrogen fertilizer away and you can prune back some of the growth without injuring the plant.
