The terminology can be confusing when talking about indeterminate, cordon, determinate, semi-determinate, bush and tall varieties, so here's a guide that I hope will make things clear.
- Tall: indeterminate and cordon - plants that will keep on growing taller until they are stopped.
- In between: semi-determinate - can be grown either as a tall or bush variety.
- Bush: determinate - a bush variety - knows how tall to grow!
Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages for example, tall varieties are great to grow up against a wall, whereas bush varieties excel in large pots on the patio.
