Question by : Cutting back tomato plants?
My Tomato plants are huge and have grown into each other and out of the garden. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. They’ve grown about six feet high and five feet wide. Can I cut the branches off or will it damage the plant? They’ve gotten so big that they can’t support themselves anymore.
Answer by Auntie Anne Arkey
Wow, sounds like you’re going for a super-crop this year. Unless a dwarf variety, I think all tomato plants require some kind of caging and staking to keep them upright. Yes, you can trim without damaging the plant. It is actually a good idea to clean out the plants so the insides of the plants get air and light. Needless to say, don’t trim branches that are loaded with flowers. Make yourself the most popular person on the block and take your branch trimmings, stick them in some super moist soil, and in about ten days, you’ll have brand new, viable tomato plants to give to your neighbors.
