The Q&A Archives: How do I get my tomato plants fuller?

Question: I have tomato plants in pots but they are not very full nor do they have many blossoms on them. They are staked up and quite tall. Any ideas?

Answer: Pinching out the growing tips will force branching towards the middle of the plant. It will also promote new flowers (which are produced on new growth). Give it a try!
