Do you pinch out the top growth to make them bushy or leave alone ? .

What do you do



Give them plenty of light to keep the stems strong, and they pinch themselves when they bloom.

Are you growing in a greenhouse or a polytunnel? I find the polytunnel better but not everybody has one. Tried a test a few years ago and pinched the tops out on some and really no difference. Just give them plenty of light, heat and water.
