Leggy Tomato Plants
Thanks for writing. Some varieties of tomato are leggier and rangier than others --- so if you're growing your plants in full sun, changing varieties may help.
Also: Do you fertilize your plants a lot? If so, this could also be encouraging the tomatoes to put on lots and lots of leafy growth. So cutting back on the fertilizer a bit may help reduce the plants' size without cutting back on yield.
Thanks for writing. I hope this helps!
