pruning or not on tomato plants

Post by CajunMom on Tue May 19, 2009 7:38 pm

I just wanted a quick survey on everyone's opinion on whether or not to prune tomato plants. I have had some that have said not too and others that insist on it. I have a hard time cutting off branches that I know will have flowers on them. What do you do?

Pruning helps get an earlier yield, which is important up here, where we don't plant in the ground until late May to early June (with cover when frost).. it's been said that flowers after the middle of August will not have time to develop tomatoes. Now I'm trying to remember... I think it might have been the end of July, actually. Will have to ask someone. But when you have a long growing season you could probabaly just let the plants go. You'll just eventually have a very, very large plant.. Is that what you all have found?

Yes, my plants are very large. I will try and take a picture and I will let you decide how they compare to others. Here in LA. we can start planting way earlier then most.
