●● Ripening greenhouse tomatoes
Your greenhouse tomatoes should now be swelling, so it’s time to take action to ripen the fruits on the lowest trusses.
The most effective method is to cut off the lower leaves around the tomatoes, allowing more light and heat to be shed on the ripening fruits and increasing air circulation which in turn deters fungal diseases.
Repeat this higher up the plant throughout the summer as fruit appears on the higher trusses, and keep removing sideshoot regrowth.
By the end of the summer, you won’t have many leaves left but your tomatoes should be fantastic.
