2018 Tomato Pruning and Trellising (Working Lab)


Part of our year-long series of tomato-related workshops, this hands-on working lab will introduce students to a variety of trellising and caging techniques for indeterminate (vining-type) tomatoes.  We'll be trellisiing a 34' row of slicing and cherry tomatoes and reviewing the how's and why's of bottom-pruning, sucker-pruning and top-pruning.  These techniques are relatively simple, extremely affordable and an effective way to increase the health and productivity of your tomato plants.
