Tips for Growing Tomatoes: Trellising, Pruning and More
June 22 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm EDT
Fresh tomatoes from the garden are the BEST, but growing them can present some challenges. In this workshop, we’ll explore some ways to overcome challenges of disease and pests and support the plants for better production. We’ll discuss and demonstrate different support methods: staking, caging, overhead trellising, and the “Florida Weave.” We’ll show how to prune tomatoes to control growth and improve disease prevention and more.
The workshop will take place primarily outdoors. Dress for the weather and prepare for a short walk over grassy, flat, but uneven terrain.
Presenter: Will Lowenthal is a Extension Master Gardener Volunteer with extensive knowledge of various vegetable gardening practices.
