That could be true but only a problem if you have a small
number of plants. The idea is to have a few ripe tomatoes as
soon as possible. Best to try it on only one or two plants if you
others you can rely upon for the full season.
Besideds, that, I'm not really sure what effect the root pruning has
on the plant for the remaining portion of the growing season.
Right now, here in New Jersey, my garden is a few weeks behind
schedule compared to previous years (more rainy & cold this year)
and I don't even have any green tomatoes on the plants yet.
Therefore, I'll probably be trying this trick on the first plant that
produces decent sized tomatoes. Over the growing season
I should be able to compare the root pruned plant's production
to another similar plant that was not root pruned.
I'll post my findings here.
