Tips for Growing Tomatoes: Trellising, Pruning and More

July 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT

Tomato season is coming into full swing! In this workshop, we’ll discuss the differences between the two major growth habits of tomato varieties: determinate and indeterminate. Understanding these differences will determine how best to manage them. We’ll discuss and demonstrate different ways to support the plants for better production: staking, caging, overhead trellising, and the “Florida Weave.” We’ll show how to prune tomatoes to control growth and improve disease prevention.

Instructors: UNH Extension Master Gardeners Will Lowenthal and Maureen Sinclair

Location: Demonstration and Teaching Garden at NH Audubon’s Massabesic Center, 26 Audubon Way, Auburn.
