Need more tomato advice

Should you cut down the smaller stems growing at the bottom of the plants?

They're starting to grow tomatoes now butI'm afraid there''s too much growth around the bottom of the plants.

 

TIA

    No. I wouldn't. Why? What's wrong with fruit on the bottom of the plant?

  • It depends. Some plants will work better when "suckered". This is the removal of the small leaves and stems toward the bottom. If they are producing fruit, I wouldnt worry about it. I usually get them early on so they havent produced fruit and then allow the other branches to get more nutrients.

    This is what I had heard.  I was only going to clip the low, non producing stems
