Tips for Growing Tomatoes: Trellising, Pruning and More


NH Audubon's Massabesic Center
26 Audubon Way
Auburn, NH 03032
United States

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.
