how many vines per semi-determinate container tomato plants?
Some people say a plant should only have one vine in order to get good tomatoes, and other people are satisfied never pruning and no doubt ending up with lots of vines. This is my first year and my plants have small tomatoes and about 4-6 vines each. What about the difference between one vine and two vines? Have any of you experimented to see how much difference it makes between one, two and three vines? Since some people are happy with a dozen or more, it seems there might not be a really noticeable difference between one and two, or one and three.
Also, when it comes time to plant in the final container should we be sure that any extra vines we want to have besides the main one are already growing, and make the hole deep enough so that where the vines branch out from the main stem is below the surface of the dirt so each will develop their own roots?
