About this Event
Are you hearing conflicting tomato-growing advice? Not sure what to do for your tomato plants? There’s more than one way to care for your tomato plants over the summer. Emma walks you through different ways to train and care for your tomato plants. In her own garden, Emma uses a variety of techniques including staking, cages, trellises, and dangling twine. Pick a growing method that suits you, your garden, and the type of tomato you’re growing. Leave this talk with pointers for caring for tomatoes and trouble-shooting common problems.
Emma Biggs is a 15-year-old gardener and garden communicator. Emma raised over 130 tomato varieties in her Toronto garden in 2019—gardening in containers, in straw bales on a driveway, in a neighbour’s yard, in wicking beds under a walnut tree, and on the garage roof. Her garden is the source of many of her stories—and the source of produce that she sells in her neighborhood. Emma gives talks at libraries, seed exchanges, garden clubs, and garden shows. She is the co-host of The Food Garden Life Radio Show and Podcast, and co-host of kids gardening videos on the From Dirt to Dishes gardening channel on YouTube. She writes a monthly Gen XYZ Edible Gardening blog for Harrowsmith magazine. Her latest book, Gardening with Emma, helps kids find the fun in gardening (and helps adults remember how much fun gardening is!)
