Poll: What's your secret for great tomatoes?

Jo McCarroll - NZ Gardener editor Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

In the October issue of NZ Gardener, we share 50 tips on tomatoes from keen gardeners all over the country, and it turns out a lot of people swear by adding a "secret ingredient" when they plant their favourite crop. All the suggestions below are from NZ Gardener readers ... do you use any of these yourself? Or do you have another tip for better toms you want to share in the comments?

Do you take Levlen ED?

Mandy Te Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours, there are supply issues with a popular contraceptive pill. Pharmac announced that Levlen ED should be rationed and dispensed in monthly amounts to ensure "sufficient" supply. Will you be affected by this? Tell us your story or contact hannah.martin@stuff.co.nz
