Potting seedlings up.
 
Hey, grabbed a 4-pack of green tomatillos at the nursery today...to make up for their lack of what I was really after -- Thai or Tobasco peppers....oi.. -- but they are quit spindly. Can I plant them a few inches deeper like tomatoes and have them root out from the stem?


Thanks in advance!:yes:

I plant mine up to just the first set of leaves, and have had great success with that.

Rooting Tomatillos
 
Last season I planted 3 spindly tomatillo seedlings from the nursery and they grew to about 8 feet on a trellis with multiple branches bearing fruit. The interesting thing was one of the main branches was laying in a full birdbath full of water and ended up with massive roots in the birdbath water! It was extremely productive but wuite unsightly. Probably could have severed the plant stem below the birdbath roots and replanted.

This season I will intentionally drape a tomatillo stem into a bucket of water, keep it full and see how productive it is as an experiment.

I will be interested to see how that turns out.
