The best Suckering/tomato pruning video....

Post  quiltbea on 5/15/2011, 9:53 pm

I just thought this video would be very helpful to any tomato gardener.

It shows how to remove suckers from your tomato plants. Though its also showing how to string them (I use this method for some of mine and love it best) the suckering works with any type of support system.

I've checked out several videos and I still find this the best one. Very good closeups and excellent instructions. I hope its helpful, especially to the newbies who are a little more unsure of themselves.

Thank you. Great information - especially how to know which is the main stem when it branches.

I really appreciate this post. This is my second year growing tomatoes and my first time growing indeterminate varieties. The video really gave my a great foundation of tomato maintenance. Thanks so much!
