It is about time for me to grow seeds in those little
peat moss pots. I usually plant three seeds per pot.
Then when I transfer to the garden, I wait to see who
deals with the shock the best and it cut off the rest.
Now Tomatillo need to be planted in pairs (or more)
as they won't self pollinate.
So, I was wondering, how about just leaving all three
in the pot? Are they too close together? Sprout them
in a wider pot perhaps? Is so, how far apart?
You guys thoughts?
I'm not Ecnerwal , but I do support my tomatoes . I use a cage made from
6x6" concrete reinforcing wire . About 2 feet diameter and 5 feet tall , and
tomatoes often grow over the top and drape to the outside . Those same cages
(or the shorter ones made from the same re-wire) work well for cucumbers ,
field peas , and pole beans .
I normally put the tomatillos in tomato cages. I prefer them upright
rather than laying on the ground. The type Snag/Terry descibes are
better than the commercial type, IMPE, though I have been using the
standard ones lately (used to have the re-mesh type when I grew up, have
not rounded the tuit to make a set.)
If 8" is even close to working you may have drastically different
tomatillos than I grow...
