Costoluto Fiorentino Tomatoes
« on: May 23, 2020, 15:41 »
Trying these out for the first time. 4 plants in green house and 2 outdoor. Some say its a bush and some                                                                        indeterminate. Question is should I pinch out side shoots or does this make them more bushy?

Taken over neglected veg garden at new home. Enemy number 1 Ground Elder. Then there is the furry terror - bunnies - to contend with!
Made a start have beds established but moved in too late for serious planting. We shall see what 2015 brings.

Pinching out the side shoots will help an undecided indeterminate to be the latter (i.e. it will make sure it grows as a cordon.)

Grew these a few years ago in the GH, and must have grown them as cordons because there isn't room in there for bush plants shooting off in all directions (even my cordons sometimes finish up a bit that way somehow!  ::) :lol:)
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older

Pinch all the side shoots if you want a single-stem plant, or pinch out the top if you want bushy plants  :D
