It's Time To Decide!

Category: Tomatoes | Posted: Sat Mar 03, 2012 4:29 am


No Growth :( ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

Almost a month had passed and there is no sign of any growth from this fella and I had to make a decision.


Retarded! ( photo / image / picture from KK Ng's Garden )

I decided to yank it out to see what was happening below ground level. It was easy to pull it out and the roots looks retarded. Guess that is why there is no growth, just struggling to keep alive....... is there some problem with the bed to retard the root growth? ..... I wonder!!

Yes Cayuga Morning, it was transplanted from a seed starter pot.

There maybe too much mulch around it?- Why not wash off the roots, and repot in a small starter pot and see what happens.

Errr ..... Gaila it's too late, thanks for the thought.

This might not have anything to do for this tom plant, but I always plant tomatoes deeper than they were potted in containers and/or lay them so that more of the stems are covered. Roots will form along the stem making the plant more vigorous. Might be something to think about since tomatoes can be sensitive to extreme heat or drying out if not planted deep enough.

Jewell, after my first failure with tomatoes I learned to plant it deep ... hmmmm maybe it is just still not enough. OK the nest one will be deep enough ...........I hope!
Thanks Jewell.
