Injured tomato plants and outgrowing support
This is my first time growing tomatoes, and I made a huge mistake...
I am growing two determinate hybrid varieties (better bush and celebrity) and two indeterminate (early girl and better boy). Well, my early girl plant quickly outgrew it's tomato cage - I had not realized that they would grow so tall! A 6' tomato plant? Wow!
I am so mad at myself, I thought I could place a bigger cage over the plant, but then I damaged my poor plant and accidentally snapped off a few branches trying to get them into the cage. :( No major branches were lost, just some of the thinner shoots. My plant is in the cage now, but I am worried about the damage I have done, to the branches and possibly to the roots. Will my plant be okay, and will it still produce tomatoes? How should I care for this plant?
I am also concerned that my better boy plant will soon outgrow its cage too. How can I continue to support it without damaging it?
Thank you! Live and learn I guess...
