To make mulch for tomato plants from dried papaya leaves, you'll need a mulch lawn mower and a wood chipping device. By beginning your mulch pile in the autumn months, and continually adding wood chips and mulched, dried papaya leaves, you'll soon be ready to add the pile to the earth around your tomato plants (in late spring or early summer).

The best mulches, such as mulch created with dried papaya leaves, are used to add height and width to tomato plants. The nutrients and chemical composition of dried papaya leaves makes these leaves very effective fertilizers for tomato plants.

Tomato Growing Tips

• When planting your tomatoes from seeds, be sure you space the seeds out and give each seed plenty of room to sprout roots and grow. The best tomato growers give each seedling a few inches of space before planting the next seed. If you don't have much soil to grow your tomatoes in, consider planting less seeds, but taking excellent care of the seedlings that are already in place. To get the best results, seeds need plenty of room to branch out and lay down roots.

• Trimming your plants with garden shears can be a great way to ensure that you get bigger, juicier tomatoes during the growing season. In general, removing leaves from the bottom portion of the tomato plant is the best gardening strategy. It's fine to leave the top leaves as they are when tending to your tomato plants.

Mulching is a clever way to amp up the size and scale of your tomato plants, and dried papaya leaves are terrific natural "food" for tomato plants. If you're examining ways to improve your yield of tomato plants this year, be sure to think about creating a mulch pile filled with shredded papaya leaves and wood chips.
