Monty Don on 'maximise amount' of tomatoes – 'A number of issues’ gardeners ought to do

“A fundamental tomato feed – we’re trying to feed the fruit, and never the plant a lot, we don’t need a larger plant, we would like extra flowers and fruit,” Monty commented. 

“Now comfrey feed is nice, however one thing I do very often and I don’t even make it right into a feed, you decide leaves and also you merely place them across the base of the plant as a leafy mulch. 

“That does two issues; it suppresses weeds and retains the moisture in, and likewise in a short time breaks down and feeds potassium into the roots and that goes into growing actually good fruits. 

“And at last, and maybe most significantly, decide all ripe tomatoes, eat them if you happen to can, and if you happen to can’t give them to somebody who will get pleasure from them.”
