Verticale Tomatoes

Post  NC7acreproject on 5/13/2014, 7:46 am

I'm sure this question has been answered, but I can't find it.  In book, it says to cut suckers off of tomatoes when growing vertical.  To only leave the top leaf.  Does this mean all of the branches?  My wife and I have a disagreement of what this means.  If you cut all branches, do you let them start growing once top leaf reaches top of trellis?  First year using the square foot garden, were use to growing tomatoes on standard tomato rack, so confused where tomatoes will grow if they have no branches.
