Before putting tomato plants in the ground, pinch off all the lower leaves. Remove all leaves except the main stems branching at the top.

Removing the lower leaves exposes the tiny hairs on the plant’s stem. Now when you plant tomatoes, small hairs will sprout in the roots, supporting the growth of the tomatoes.

After removing all the lower leaves and exposing the hairs, you can place the tomato plants in the ground, covering most of the stem with dirt. Bury the plant up to the top of the leaves so the plant can get more nutrients.

How it helps

FarmingInTheBurbs encourages TikTokers around the world to create their own home gardens. Growing your own produce is a great way to save money on groceries while ensuring your fruits and vegetables are organic.

Gardening has also been found to improve your physical and mental health. Recent studies reveal that individuals who consistently tend to the garden have lower levels of stress and higher levels of overall well-being.

By gardening for only a portion of your total produce, you also help reduce demand for mass-produced items that are shipped globally. Reducing the amount of food you buy also helps reduce pollution by reducing car trips to the store.

What everyone says

TikTokers appreciated the gardening hack discovery and were eager to share additional tips for growing healthy produce.

One user wrote: “Oh my goodness, after all my years of gardening, this is amazing to learn.”

“What?! I’m so glad I saw this. I’m going to get tomato plants today!” another TikToker commented.

“Now that you have that, look for companion plants,” one gardener replied. “The first year I did basil and amaranth with tomatoes, and they are thriving.”

“Brown Thumb is here. If they’re in the ground, is it too late?” Another user asked.

“If it’s been less than a week, I’ll dig and replant,” FarmingInTheBurbs replied.
