(8 of 9) Growing Tomatoes & Peppers: Side Dressing, Pruning, Suckers, Removing Leaves, Sprays

(8 of 9) Growing Tomatoes & Peppers: 
Side Dressing, Pruning, Suckers, Removing Leaves, Sprays

Video #8 of 9 gets your tomatoes and peppers ready for growth and production. I show you how I remove bottom leaves from my peppers and talk about fertilizing them. They don't need much. I also show you how I stake, prune and remove suckers from tomato plants. I explain what a production stem is and discuss why you may want to manage stems on your tomatoes. I also show you how to side dress tomatoes with fertilizer and lime.




Good Luck with Your Garden,

(7 of 9) Growing Tomatoes & Peppers: Prevention, Splash Barrier, Aspirin & Sprays, Planting

(7 of 9) Growing Tomatoes & Peppers: 
Prevention, Splash Barrier, Aspirin & Sprays, Planting

In video #7 I talk about disease prevention. Mulch is used for moisture and weeds but also as a disease splash barrier. Bottom pruning leaves helps create a disease barrier. Slugs are treated with Iron phosphate and I plant my indeterminate tomatoes. Finally I talk about Aspirin spray (which really works) for bolstering you tomato plant's defenses. Baking soda makes a great anti-fungal.

(6 of 9) Growing Tomatoes & Peppers: Pepper Planting, Container Soil, Basic Feeding, Tomato Progress

(6 of 9) Growing Tomatoes & Peppers: 
Pepper Planting, Container Soil, Basic Feeding, Tomato Progress 

This is the 6th video of 9. Peppers and tomatoes like the warmth and generally like to be planted when the nights are in the 50's and the days are in the 70's. Too much nitrogen grows a lot of pepper leaves. While tomatoes love to be fed, a bit less for peppers is better. I talk about some basic fertilizing principles and how to make a basic container soil. I also show you how to plant your peppers in containers and in earth beds. Tomatoes show up in the video to but they will be the star of the next video.
