well, just that really?

obviously they have stopped flowering, i've been pinching out the tops for weeks, and i've got quite a lot of fruit, some are even turning orange now grin

but how do you know when to stop feeding?

thanks thanks

Once all the fruit have set and they are turning colour, you can stop feeding. You only feed to encourage fruiting so once that's happened then further feeding is unnecessary. I've now picked around 15kg of toms, both from my greenhouse and outside toms and today I've pulled the last of my outdoor fruit off and now have all my window sills full of green toms, which should ripen nicely. The greenhouse toms are still going strong smile
