So, what are BUSH & VINE tomato plants????:
There are two basic shapes of tomato plant, and you grow them differently.
Bushy plants to 3 or 4 feet high
Side-shoots bear flowers & fruit quickly
May still need a stake or two
Don't need 'pinching -out'
Very lanky plants to 6 or 8 feet high
Side-shoots don't flower soon
Need tall stake or string
Side-shoots must be 'pinched-out' to
Of course, there are in-between types that need some support but not side-shoot removal.
Bear in mind that all tomato plants grow taller and thinner indoors. Outside, the wind makes them grow shorter and bushier.
But don't despair. Its simpler than it sounds - you just need an experienced gardener to show you how!
