Growing tomatoes.
I have bougtht gardeners delight tomatoes as young plants. They are now 5"-6" high. Should i pinch out the growing tips to encourage the plants to bush out or leave them to grow on. Thank you in anticipation.



No. With tomatoes you grow them as a cordon. That means they grow tall and you pinch out side shoots. These grow between the main stem and leaves coming off the main stem. Some tomatoes are bush types but not gardener's delight. They will also need to be tied to a cane for support. Hope they do well for you.
