Now that we can grow in the open, I want to try a few monsters up here.
I don't want to get too off track because this thread was about amendments. I try to top as little as possible. It slows growth and messes with structure. A plant will naturally want to grow into a ball with lots of tops unless it is crowded at some point. This goes for foliage and roots. If you veg them in a packed greenhouse in small pots or transplant into small final pots you will need to top.
If i ever top, it's just 1 time after it gets transplanted.
