"Tomato Growing Secrets"


Tomato Growing Secrets by Doug Green

Doug Green is a semi-retired Canadian nurseryman with years of experience in the garden. According to Amazon this “award winning garden author, brings a down-to-earth style and easy gardening systems to his lifetime of organic garden achievements.”

I always enjoy his writing. Tomato Growing Secrets is no exception. So if you think you know everything there is to know about growing tomatoes, think again. This book contains hints and tips for growing a good crop of tomatoes. Some tips include: how to warm the soil for early planting, how to increase a late crop of tomatoes, how to get a ripe tomato before your neighbor (a must read for you competitive types).

Pests and diseases are also covered. A chart to compare with your plant’s symptoms tells what you can (and can't) do about it.

Other books by Doug Green: Tender Roses in Tough Climates, Vegetable Gardening in the North, Successful Organic Lawns and many more. (Some books are offered only as ebooks) Doug’s Website “Doug Green’s Garden

I only grow two tomato plants, both in containers but I still need all the help I can get.

I only grow one or two tomato plants also. I move them around the flower garden each year wherever I can find sun.
