Crop Maintenance

  • Keep plants moist at all times
  • Maintain a high humidity in the greenhouse
  • This can be done by pouring water on the greenhouse floor in summer
  • Plants should be supported with canes or tomato spirals
  • Plants respond well to a liquid feed after transplanting

Harvest
