Planted some tomato cuttings for Fall

behlgarden(9)September 21, 2011

I planted some cuttings of Italian, 1884, and Chocolate Stripe tomatoes last night. I cut about 12" long from tip of the new growth/sucker and trimmed its lower leaves. drilled a hole with pencil about 6-7" deep in moist/wet soil and planted the suckers.

Hoping to see some success here and I will post once I see any growth. These three tomatoes were best tasting tomatoes in my garden. Fingers crossed.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I might need some clarification from experts on this one. I did not get cutting from lower branches, instead I cut the top 12" of the plant and got cutting from there. will it work? what is the best place of plant to get a cutting that will produce good?
