I have planted tomatoes for the first time this year. Four Ailsa Craigs
and two Alicante's. Both seem to be doing well, and are starting to show
some nice (still green) fruit.
I have a few questions though:
1) Every plant has two stems though. I have removed every sideshoot that
i saw that grew at the junction of the main stem and leaf. The second
stem does not originate from this place, but rather comes out of the
main stem nowhere near a leaf. How do you identify these stems?
2) Given that I have now nipped out the growth point as each plant had 6
trusses, will the plant continue to produce new trusses and flowers
throughout the summer now that it will no longer grow upwards, or are
the one's they have now it?
Thanks in advance for any help on this.
