A bestseller for Acres U.S.A., this book captures the tactics of growing giant tomato plants. For most of his 80+ years, Charles Wilber studied how to best work with nature. In How to Grow World Record Tomatoes, he tells his personal story and offers his philosophy and approach to gardening. He reveals how he grows record-breaking tomatoes and produces every variety for the first time. There's no magic involved. It is just a well-thought-out system that gives plants more than they could ever want and makes it possible to reach their full potential. 

Wilber's compost is the cornerstone, along with a wide circumference around plants layered with compost, alfalfa meal, and mulch. Valuable pruning and watering details are given, and a new way of looking at seeds. As you will learn, growing excellent tomatoes integrates every aspect of gardening that you can imagine. Includes photos and clear instructions.
