Is it okay to cut the TOP of the tomato plant before they become to big (high) for my terrasse ? Is there a tip for doing this and does it have any good / bad side effects ?



You normally pinch out the growing tip at the top when you have 4 - 5 trusses of tomatoes.

No problems in cutting them out but they will encourage more side shoots. Just pinch them out.

Perfect, thank you for sharing your experience :)

Though it breaks my heart I will go do the cut... :)
