  1. Another growing guide for you all, If there is any other growing guides,
    let me know which ones to do!

  2. Hey mate how is the pumpkin challenge going. Would have loved to taken part
    but could not get any seeds. Could you send me some of your pumpkin seeds
    if you get any from your giant? I would love to use some for next year, but
    Holland’s Giant Pumpkins could not send me any due to customs. Would gladly
    send you some tomatoe seeds you might not have.
    Cheers David. 

  3. Excellent tips for growing tomatoes, Luke! I’m always interested to hear
    how other gardeners approach things even when it’s different from my
    approach. The important thing is to have healthy productive tomato plants.

    Excellent info, Luke! That tomato plant responded to your TLC in record
    time! I love leaf compost – esp the way it brings in the worms!

  5. Nice informative video great tips :) 

  6. Thanks for the info! I planted my first square foot garden (following the
    book to the T – 1ft spacing, 6in depth) this year and I feel that my
    tomatoes are stressed – flowers falling off, blight, low yield, etc. My
    experience has me questioning the square foot gardening method in general.

  7. I give my tomatoes WHEY from my greek yogurt making. Mulching with thin
    layers of organic grass clippings helps with the splash back from the soil.
    Plus, worms love the grass clippings, then POOP and fertilize my tomatoes.
    After all this then I PRAY I DON’T GET BLIGHT. :0)

  8. Why did you get so many thumbs down? I thought your info was great! 

  9. Hi i have two Ox heart plants which keep getting attacked by leaf miners.i
    used a pesticide on them and even moved them to the shed but they are still
    being attacked. How can i get rid of them? never had a problem last year
    like this :( . What im doing at the moment is scraping the leaves to get to
    the worm and kill them.

  10. I noticed 2 out of my 8 tomatoes plants are looking like the leaves are
    curling. What causes that?

  11. Thanks for sharing the great tips.

    What is a good source of organic Potassium?

  12. Very good growing guide Luke. Thank you for sharing!

    Rick

  13. Thanks for the information Luke. :) 

  14. What if they have fruit? I always heard to remove it. Is this best?

  15. a lot of people’s tomatoes get the blight when it rains. the soil splashes
    up on the leaves, and the problems begin. mulching keeps dirt from
    splashing up.
    i think it takes a long time for eggshells to be ‘edible’ by tomato plants.
    love your videos, man! thank you.

  16. What is the fertilizer you mentioned that you give after the. 4th. What
    source can we use for tomatoes? I had that exact problem last year. I had
    an abundance of a plant but little fruit. I also would like to express my
    appreciation! You have been a main inspiration for my garden this year.
    Thank you !!

  17. How do you fertilize with your blood meal and bone meal? Like, how much,
    etc? Thanks!

  18. How often do you fertilize during the growing season?
    Also a quick onion question. Mine keep wanting to flower…does this mean
    its time to harvest them? Thanks!!

  19. Lovely update can you use normal cooking or table salt as I do not have
    Epsom salt have a blessing of a week

  20. Great info, I’m not growing tomatoes this year but I might do it later on,
    maybe next year :-) 

  21. Love your videos. Great time to buy plants from nurseries. Good to know.
    Thanks!

  22. Hi wanted to let you know that my Ox heart tomato’s are doing great & the
    leaf miners have just stopped attacking… My plants are 8inchs, healthy &
    already starting to get out flowers :D . I got a few questions if you dont
    mind too. I bought a Tomato Grow Bag & im gonna use a Botanico Tomato Cage.
    What i wanted to know please if i have to try & tie the tomato branches
    also? I was only gonna tie the stem. Because im worried that the friut
    would be so heavy in the future that they can break the branches. I have
    read that Indeterminate tomatoes will grow and produce fruit until killed
    by frost.
    My tomatos are Indeterminate ones(i live were it never snows) will they
    still die for me if i keep them in the shed in winter. It shouldnt get
    colder then 5C. Or will it keep living & making fruit? Thanks :) 

  23. Great info! This year I planted at only 1 foot intervals, but I’m using a
    string trellis and pruning continually. This is the first year I’ve tried
    it this way and so far the plants seem very healthy. Most are 4-5 ft tall
    with multiple flower/fruit sets. We’ll see how it goes, I could end up
    regretting it. But sure love experimenting with different setups. Thanks
    so much for another great video!

  24. Watering seems like a simple topic, but I read an article in Urban farming(
    about stressing tomatoes for better taste and nutritional content) that
    Commercial growers water their plants once initially by flooding the area,
    then once again a month later. How is that even possible when if I water a
    plant too late in the day it seems to crack all over the place?

  25. Good info. Thanks!
