How to Graft Tomatoes

Ever thought of grafting your own tomatoes? Grafted tomatoes combine rootstock that is bred for disease resistance and vigor with the top of another tomato variety that has excellent flavor and productivity. Grafting tomatoes allows you to create a tomato plant that will work the best for your specific needs.

At High Mowing we work with grafted tomatoes often, and we’ve produced a video to help walk you through the process. Grafting tomatoes takes a bit more time and effort, but the (very tasty) benefits are worth it!

Looking for organic rootstock? We carry Estamino, the first tomato rootstock bred for organic growing conditions and available as organic seed.

    What do yo use as the clip to hold them together?
    I like this idea as I have groundhogs, rabbits, squirrels, etc. in the woods around me who love to nibble on things. This winter I am growing tomatoes, eggplant, onions, etc in the house (y floor to ceiling windows. I don’t have a green house, but I do have a long deck. Could I attach a trellis to the deck railing and support the plants and do you plant determinate or indeterminate tomatoes?
