Free Tomato Plants from Side-shoots
Oh, the marvellous tomato plant! This video shows an easy way to make clones of your tomato plants from otherwise discarded foliage. You’d prune off those extra shoots as a matter of course because they take energy away from the plant that you want it to spend on producing tomatoes.
This would be a good way to skip the seed starting process entirely — if a friend or community garden is willing to let you have a shoot.
