Tomato Plants for Free

By Englishgardener

We were all taught to remove the lateral shoots when growing tomato plants. This is the shoot that appears in the axis between the stem and leaf, also known as axial shoot, sucker, etc. The removal of these shoots would enable the plant to put all of its energy into fruit production. We were advised to pick out and discard, but not anymore!

I do this with petunias too.
Buy one expensive plant and take cuttings.

Thanks Caroline! I am rooting an expensive one in soil treated with rooting hormone. Didn't know petunias would root in water.

I usually root them in a tray of soil.
But should be good in water too.
