HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – This week’s Garden Tips is about grafted tomatoes.

George Bennett of Bennett Nurseries says this is a new way to grow tomatoes, where one type of plant is ‘grafted’ on top of another tomato plant’s root system.

Bennett says this grafted tomato will ‘take off’ – growing faster, and growing bigger fruit.  He encourages you to grow one next to another type of tomato and see the difference.
