Tomato Plants Are Bending To The Ground As They Grow

Question From: L. DeNofio - East Greenwich, Rhode Island, United States
Q: Hi Nancy, just planted my tomatoe plants last week,however a few are growing well but will not shoot upward. They are bending to the ground. Never had this problem before. The rest of the plants seem to be shooting up fine. Any answers?

A: That is not unusual. Time to stake them. Do so quickly and gently or it will be too late. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
