Did you know that removing unhealthy leaves from tomato plants can make your plant healthier and produce more tomatoes? In this video, a farm to table chef explains exactly how to easily remove leaves from tomato plants and have tomatoes galore.
When removing leaves, select leaves that are spotted, yellow, dry, or just don’t look healthy. You can use small scissors or garden shears to remove the leaves by cutting them at the base of the stem. This will help lighten up the plant and provide energy to the necessary areas of the plant for fruit production and flowering. Do this throughout the growth period of the tomato plant.
