Squash and tomatoes: Recommended care - 01. September 2021
Tomatoes still bear a lot of fruit. In order for them to mature, the plant shouldn’t waste its energy in new flowers. Remove all of them, as the new flowers will not produce fruit until the beginning of winter. Even side shoots can be removed regularly. If necessary, a bit of fertiliser can still be useful.
Ensure that the squash have enough water and nutrients. The fruits are only harvested from the end of September to the end of October and still need a lot of energy to mature. Diseased leaves can be removed. Tip: Put the fruit on a wooden crate or another support to avoid contact with damp soil. Squash will rot far less!
