Have you ever thought of planting your tomato plants horizontally instead of vertically ? This is a great tip !
Why should we do that instead of the traditional way ? By planting your tomatoes horizontally, you encourage the plants to develop roots closer to the fruit, and you give them even better access to the nutrients in the soil.
Here is how to do it :
Start by removing the leaves and branches that are at the base of the main stem, then dig a shallow trench. Lay your plant by bringing out the top of the plant and cover it with soil.
Your plants will need less water and fertilizer to grow and reach their full potential ! !
There are other tips for having beautiful tomatoes ! Here are some that will be very practical for you to have delicious tomatoes.
If your soil is acidic (check you soil!), wait until your plants reach a diameter of at least 1 inch, then sprinkle baking soda over the soil and around the plants. Repeat another time during the summer to get abundant and juicy tomatoes ! !
This trick is not very famous, but it's very effective: by planting your tomato seedlings, add a toothpick near the main stem. The larvae of insects will not approach your plants !
It's important to add mulch to the soil around your tomato plants so they retain as much moisture as possible. In addition, mulch can regulate the soil temperature, which is very advantageous for tomatoes !
Before adding the mulch, wait 1 month after planting, so that the soil has absorbed heat from the sun. First, soak sheets of newspaper in water, place the soaked sheets on the ground, then cover them with mulch. Wet newspaper will help conserve soil moisture and then help to disintegrate it into the soil.
