Keep your tomato plants "in line" by spanking them! It helps with pollenation, stimulates growth, and keeps them from misbehaving ;) We also talk about pruning tomato branches & suckers, the use of apple juice for "setting" tomato blossoms, and why blossoms sometimes fall off.

There are multiple ways to root or clone tomato suckers. For hydroponics, it needs to be done without soil. One of the easiest ways is with the use of growplugs. They hold a good amount of moisture, while still providing proper aeration. A couple of things to remember, keep them out of direct sunlight during the rooting process. And make sure you have some type of cover over them to maintain good humidity levels. Doing so will greatly increase your chances of success.

Learn how to get 50-80 lbs of tomatoes from every tomato plant. Planting a garden can be a lot of fun but get a harvest is really what it is all about. Follow these steps to dramatically improve your tomato harvest. 1. Buy the right plants for your area. Talk with the Master Gardener association or university agriculture extension in your area. 2. Lay plants on their side so the tips will grow upwards. 3. Dig a trench and bury all but the top 3 inches. 4. Add 1/4-1/2 cup slow release fertilizer, like cotton seed meal, Osmocote, etc., to the trench. 5. Build a 5 foot high 2 foot diameter cage around each plant. 6. Cover cage on the sides and on top with "floating row cover" (a light polyester material) or plastic to protect from wind and weather until plants are large and strong and weather is warm. 7. Weekly apply water soluble fertilizer, like Rapid Grow or Miracle Grow, through a hose-end fertilizer applicator on the leaves. 8. When plants have set their first cluster of fruit, side dress with two to three tablespoons of ammonium sulfate and water well. 9. Pick tomatoes when 30% ripe to avoid the birds from eating them. 10. Do not put tomatoes in the refrigerator. Keep on the kitchen counter.

When you're growing tomatoes and pruning them to a single stem, you need a way to keep them growing vertically. The simplest way is to tie twine to a purlin or rafter in the top of your greenhouse, and secure the stems with "trellis clips". I prefer to use baling twine, since it won't rot and is very strong. However, if you want to grow the 15-20 foot tall plants, you need to be able to drop the string down and move the top of the plant laterally. This can be accomplished by running a heavy wire or cable horizontally in the top of your greenhouse, and using a roller type string system. It works pretty good for tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, pole beans, and anything else that you want to grow vertically. Also, I've had many requests to explain the trellis that I built for growing tomatoes last year. Essentially, it's a souped up clothesline, designed to support a good amount of weight. Since I like to rotate crops, I'm using it for pole beans this year, Fortex and Red Cranberry. https://www.facebook.com/mhp.gardener

How to prune and train tomatoes up a string from http://www.youtube.com/user/headgardener2u/ and award winning garden author Doug Green. There are several important things to understand about pruning tomatoes, the first is that they way a significant amount when fully loaded and the tomatoes are ripening. You can find me at G+ here https://plus.google.com/u/0/107836847806083557330/posts Facebook is here https://www.facebook.com/DougGreensGardening Twitter is here https://twitter.com/douggreen Secondly, when pruning them up a string it is important to remove the suckers and only allow a single stem to grow up each string. I used to grow tomatoes commercially and this system works perfectly for both training the tomato all season and cleaning it up quickly in the fall. Beginners sometimes ask what you attached the tomato to the string with? The answer is nothing. If you bend the tomato around the string a complete revolution every 6 to 8 inches, you will find the tomato will stick quite nicely all by itself by friction. You can see this in the video. So feeding and watering tomato are critical steps to success but so is the way you train and prune it. The nice thing about a tomato is it grows so quickly that if you do manage to take out the wrong bits from the wrong piece of the wrong direction, it will regrow and give you a second or third chance. I prune and thin my tomatoes in this way because pruning to a single stem, will give me more tomatoes per square-foot than if I let them flop on the ground. Pruning tomatoes is easy once you get the hang of it. You can see other videos at http://www.douggreensgarden.com
