Aquaponics – Pruning climbers and creepers

Whenever I start pruning our vegetable plants my wife always asks, should we really cut these branches? Won’t they produce more vegetables?

Cutting off the branches of a healthy plant is a hard thing to do. But every time I prune a plant results are visible in a matter of days, interms of more flowers and fruits, and better growth of main branches.

Similarly if you see a small plant having flowers pluck them off early. Having fruits on young plants will reduce the growth of the plant and ultimately  reduce the productivity of the plant.
