Zone 77301 | JackieW51 added on March 18, 2020 | Answered

I planted a few tomato plants a couple of weeks ago, I put them in the ground about 1/3 of the plant. Now they are going great I just wanted to know if I needed to prune the bottom leaves also should I be pinching the buds?

Tomatoes are best left to grow on their own. Pinching and pruning should be left to repairing damaged plants, or plants that have suffered from a lack of light and are stretched.

The best thing to be done, at this time, will be to provide the proper care and environment until you know what it is lacking. If it fails to branch, or becomes leggy, you will want to increase light or provide some more humidity, if possible.
