Use ‘pinching’ trick to get ‘the best results’ from your tomato plants – ‘boosts fruiting’

With regular watering, after a month, you should see some flowering, according to Tom.

As well as maintaining good moisture in the soil, fertiliser is also an essential when growing tomatoes.

The gardening pro said: “You can also boost fruiting by feeding the plants every 10 to 14 days with a high-potassium liquid fertiliser once you see the first fruits begin to swell.”

Samantha agreed on the need for fertiliser, but suggested a weekly feed instead.

She said: “To boost fruiting, especially with plants in containers, feed once a week with a high potassium liquid fertiliser once the first fruits start to swell. 

“There are lots of very good organic tomato fertilisers available on the market.”
