At the start of the season some novice growers might get confused with shoots and trusses, so here are a few pictures to help.
Also I have a section here about potting on. As I have said before, this is what works for me but we all have our different rules that we stick to.
Here is a truss, and as you can see it is growing straight out from the stem. It is not a good idea to cut them off, as it could cause infection as it is part of the stem, unlike shoots, which are like little suckers so can be snapped off. If you feel your plant is weak and are tempted to cut it off, do not worry, as the plant will probably look after itself and not set
the fruit, then or slightly later on.
