Although its a bit late

I took 3 internodal tomato stems (the side shoots you pinch out) and potted them on into individual pots. Straws and plastic bags were put over to create a tent to help stop them from wilting:
All being well, they should be rooted in a couple of weeks, grown on and potted into large pots after that.

These will live outdoors then be brought into my conservatory later in the year, and with a bit of luck, will provide some late tomatoes.

  2. I had to do this a few years ago when I suddenly lost a few plants. They're so quick to germinate aren't they.

  4. That is such a clever idea, we have plenty for now but certainly something to think about for next year.
