Bush Tomato's
« on: June 16, 2012, 11:46:33 pm »
Thought I would be very busy whilst the rain came down, pot on tomato's. Was just a bit to clever & thought that Pomodoro Saint Pierre was a cordon & nipped off all side shoot from the bottom 3 sets of leaves. :'(   Question - has anyone done this & will the plant still bush??

it will be fine, but it will be a bit later. i would pot it up, so the soil level is just below the lower leaf joints, you could take the lower leaves off to bury more stem and maybe change the fertiliser to a higher nitrogen one temporarily, until you see new flower trusses.
