I am growing tomatoes in my greenhouse in pots -- they are looking good -- but I dont know when to stop their growth -- they have fruit on and about 3/4 trusses each plant
Thanking you



I usually stop after 4 trusses if they are growing strongly,
when you do the little devils start sending out side shoots again so be vigilant removing them

I grow mine in the greenhouse border, not in pots, and I usually stop them after the 6th truss has formed, they could grow a bit more, but then you would probably have to ripen them off the plant, {plus I would need longer canes, lol,} Derek.
