50-60 tomatoes from the bush

50-60 tomatoes from the bush

One bush of tomatoes can be grown on two roots - and the place is saved, and the crop will be more abundant. For example, I got from one such bush to 50-60 tomatoes. Variety does not matter.

To do this, I plant seeds in one container close to each other - at a distance of no more than 1 cm . When the seedlings grow older and the thickness of the stem becomes large enough, I remove the top layer of the stems of two neighboring plants with a sharp razor from the side in which they face each other so that the cambium is exposed. Cut length 2- 3 cm . After that, I tilt the plants towards each other so that the exposed areas of the stems are aligned, and tightly wrap this place with a ribbon of film about 1 cm . I grow it like a normal seedling.

Shortly before planting the seedlings in the ground in that of the plants that developed worse, I pinch the top - leave 3 - above the cut 5 cm . The plant transplanted into the ground is rapidly developing, as it now has a powerful root system. When it gets stronger, I carefully remove the film.

Caring for a double bush is different in that it is necessary to water and feed it more often and more abundantly, given the presence of two roots. When planting I put a reliable support, because the bush is larger than usual.

Try it yourself! What do you risk ?! In the extreme case , you will have a shrub growing on one root ...
