I did a lot of research on how to trim, but all I could find was the general advice of “determinate plants don’t need trimming.” Does this mean I SHOULD NOT trim my determinate tomato plant at all, and leave yellow and dry leaves on the plant?
If not, and I should trim, how? Should I cut off just the leaves that are yellow? If an entire branch is yellow and drying out, should I cut off that branch? The entire circled branch 1 is yellow; the entire circled branch 2 is also yellow, though no leaves and very short; circled branch 3 looks like it will all go yellow but currently it’s just some of the leaves.
Background: It‘s a German Johnson variety that I transplanted from a nursery into its current pot almost two months ago. I water with filtered water; I fertilize with Fox Farms Grow Big liquid plant food 6-4-4 every two weeks; the soil is covered with organic mulch.
Just noticed that one of the tomatoes (pictures) looks like it might be getting blossom end rot. I have added an eggshell to the soil roughly once per week for the last month. Should I be doing more and/or something else?
