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.

- I have cucumber plants that I started growing from seeds in march of this year. I replanted about 2 weeks ago into a 20 gallon tub. I put the plant in a back room where the sun comes in alot, it started growing really well then i put the plant out side during the day and bring it in at night. Since then the leaves have started turning brown on the edges and it doesn't look very good. I have a tomato plant also and it is doing just fine, its very green and getting bigger by the minute. Do you have any suggestions for me?
