Damaged tomato plant advice?

Midlife | Aug 21, 2013 11:33 AM

So I planted a second round of tomatoes in containers and accidentally badly bent the tallest branch of one plant while placing the cage in the pot. We tried taping it upright for a few days but everything above the break has apparently died.

We've cut the branches just above the break and left the bandage on for now.

Wondering if it would be better to remove the wrapping and cut just BELOW the break. OR.... Other thoughts?
