Regarding tomatoes ... My plants are about 7 weeks old and currently in 3" pots, but they seem a bit leggy. I grew them in a heated propagator, but maybe the temperature was too high.

When I plant them in the greenhouse, in 9" ring culture pots, should I maybe plant thm deeper than normal. I think I read somewhere, tomato plants readily make ne roots from their stem, if this is under the soil level.

Thank you for any replies.



Every time I pot hem on I bury some of the stem as they readily root from the stem. so nothing to lose in doing so.
