I am growing an early greenhouse tomato,Bloody Butcher. Apparently an indeterminate variety. Always successful.This year,plants are better than ever.First flowers open on bottom trusses but then the stems have gone into 2 directions.What I would consider as the the main stem, with the next flower buds on has veered off leaving a vertical stem and leaf where I would expect the leader to be. It is the strongest and the stem is darker. Now at last the question. Have I nipped off the right stem,the central one,on some plants that stem as well has flowers on but much smaller and immature.With this variety it has not happened before.
