Taking away the potato shoot

The TomTato® plant can sometimes produce potato foliage from the base of the plants which may grow through the tomato foliage. These can be removed by pinching out to ground level and will not affect the potato harvest, you will only need to remove these up to the end of July.

If however this is left to grow through the tomato foliage, any potato flowers should be removed. Top up the compost in containers every so often to prevent potatoes near the soil surface from becoming green and inedible.
