Trying to catch a few rays – or just have a bumper crop of tomatoes? The Sun Seeker can help.
A listener wrote last week to ask about pruning tomatoes. The first thing to know is, you don’t have to do it, it’s up to you. Secondly, you probably only want to prune vining varieties.
Well that took long enough. Finally, we grew a tomato or two!
Hornworms can devour all the leaves on your tomatoes, peppers, and other plants in that same family very quickly. But don’t reach for the pesticides just yet.
Tomatoes need sun to grow, that much we know, at least 6 hours of sun a day or so. But too much sun and heat can also be bad for them.
When you see it says on a plant label that something needs ‘full sun,’ what does that mean?
