GROW­ING GUIDE

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Garden Produce -

dig deep

If buy­ing seedlings in a pot, plant them deep enough so half the plant lies un­der­ground. Toma­toes de­velop roots along their stems and they will grow into stronger plants.

find an an­gle

If your seedlings are leggy, dig a shal­low hole and lay the plant in it side­ways. It will quickly straighten up as it searches out the sun.

cut to be kind

Re­move shoots that are grow­ing be­tween the main branches. They take away en­ergy from the plant that will be needed to pro­duce the fruit.
