My tomato plants have already produced a ton and now have stopped. They are growing
and taking over the garden! They are so big that they've weighted down the cages that USED to support them and are now an ugly mess laying on the ground. I know that when they were seedlings
and I was transplanting them, the advice was to plant them up to the first set of leaves because the stem was capable of making roots. So my question is this...
If I pull up my mater plants and clip off one of the healthy "branches" can I plant that in the ground and it will root? I am hoping to clean things up in the garden and hopefully get another crop of maters (THIS time securing the growing
plants much better!)
BTW, if it makes any difference, I'm in S.Texas and the variety of tomatoes are Roma, Beefsteak and Better Boy.
