Pruning tomatoes properly can help them produce more fruit and extend their growing season. Take care of these plants with routine maintenance and you'll have seasonal fruit all summer long!
Look for branches and leaves that are at the bottom 12 to 18 inches of the plant. This helps to direct the plant to grow upright, giving you a taller and fuller plant. Be sure to always prune at a 45-degree angle for a clean cut, as breaking the stems or leaves off of the plant and leaving unprotected stems can endanger the plant.
As you're cleaning up your tomato plant, snip off the plant suckers using a Fiskars microtip pruning snips and place in water to allow for new root growth. Once the roots have reached 1 inch in length, transfer the sucker into soil to sprout a new tomato plant!
