Q.Tomato Plants Spindly and High

Anonymous added on April 10, 2011 | Answered

I have started tomatoes from seed in my house and while waiting for them to be transplanted outside, they are getting very tall and spindly with very narrow stems. Can I cut the main stem back by about one third or so to try to limit the height of the plant and thicken up the main stalk?
