The Q&A Archives: topsy turvey tomatoe planter

Question: my upside down tomatoe is growing up instead of down. How do I fix this?

Answer: It is normal for the growing tips of plants to head upwards towards the sunshine. As the stems elongate and become heavy with fruit they will naturally bend downward. There's nothing you need to do to encourage this - it will happen all by itself as the plant continues to grow. Enjoy your tomatoes!
