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 really enjoyed the article and was inspired to take my own cutting. When that one worked, I took another. Both have been potted and pinched off two more today. We're in Georgia, so we have a long growing season . At the very least, it's good to practice propagation (even if this is the easiest way lol)!
for the inspiration!
First rooting tomato plant!
