I'm new to growing tomatoes and I have a question on pruning.
These plants are Husky cherry tomatoes and Cherry 100 tomatoes. When is
a good time to start pruning.
These started a little late and are about 3' tall. I see 2 have 2
stems. I have yet to look for suckers.
Right now they have started flowering and 2 have some fruit. Whets a
good height for these guys.
From what I can gather these are indeterminate plants.
Any insight is appreciated.
I just get rid of anything that is dead or that is seriously crowding out
the fruits. I never follow a plan and I get hundreds of tomatoes every
summer. I leave the suckers on too--just push the extra branches back into
the cages. More tomatoes for me!

Depending on the variety some people like to prun their tomatoe
plants. Prunning decreases the number of fruits, but increases their
size. I have never prunned cherry tomatoes. I just let them grow
anywhere except I do keep them off the ground.
