This class is the final installment of a series on tomatoes, each is perfectly timed for what you need to know. We will pick up from planting out tomatoes into the garden – where we ended last time, and share best practices in fertilizing, watering, pruning, and disease management.
Questions that will be addressed:
- When should I plant the tomato start in the garden?
- What are the best ways to support my tomato plant?
- How do I grow for better health?
- How do I prune, water and fertilize tomatoes?
- What are the common tomato diseases and disorders? And how do I manage them?
- How to best meet weather challenges, environmental problems, and insect pests.
- What will help me get an early harvest?
- How do I maximize the harvest?
- Can tomatoes be stored well?
