Tomatoes in Pots

Anonymous added on May 30, 2011 | Answered

Last year I grew tomoatoes on my balcony. I pruned all the suckers. The darn things grew up to the top of the balcony, hit the ceiling and then kept growing (bending over). Should I trim the top of the plant so that it does not get too tall? There was no way I could reach tomatoes that high! With only one stem, they did not get very bushy.

I would not prune the suckers out this year. Removing the suckers encourages the plant to grow up instead of out.
