One gro-bag of tomatoes is over, so I have cut it back, and dragged it out of the greenhouse, replacing the area with chrysanths, which have been in a cold frame during the spring and summer. My query is, they have grown very leggy, the leaves are mainly at the top of the plants, so can I cut them back?
Second query is about used gro-bags, and I think I have asked this before, but can I use the compost for potting up young plants?
No doubt others who really know the answer will be along soon. But I don't suppose you'd do any harm to pinch out the growing point, see if the grow bushy.

Should be fine to take out the top. How far depends on how leafy they are down the tall stem as you must leave some leaves. It might also take more time for the flower buds to appear but your plants will be stronger. Good luck and hope you have a lovely show.
