Cherry tomato planting depth

Muncie, Indiana, United States Us

Hey guys. I just bought some cherry tomato plants. The info tag on it says the plant deep, 80% of the plant... do they mean 80% of the leafy stalk? It seems kinda strange to me..? Just looking for advice on if I am thinking correctly.




they will mean the stalk. tomatoes produce support roots from the stem. if this seems too deep go for 50% but dont get the compost too wet initially as you may get rotting off. I tend to repot mine only slightly deeper each time.
