Tomato Gardening Containers


There are just a few vegetables or fruit with the mass appeal of tomatoes. They are incredibly versatile and may be used for salads, Italian dishes, and a wealth of other culinary masterpieces. Unfortunately, in some areas, tomatoes are being priced at over $2.99 a pound. The up side is that everyone, regardless of their available space could grow their own healthy, delicious tomatoes by planting them in a tomato gardening container.

All that is really necessary to grow your own tomatoes is sunshine. Of course there are a few other odds and ends that will make it simpler. You will need to get containers. Five to six gallon sized pots work well. For best results plant just one tomato plant per container. We will also need the tomato seeds or seedlings, soil, and wooden stakes to hold the plants up when they grow too tall. String is also helpful for attaching the stalks to the stakes. You might find certain types of tomato plants seem to grow better in containers than others. A lot of experienced growers of container tomatoes suggest using the bush varieties of plants. Cherry tomatoes are very popular because of their smaller size, but do not let that stop you from experimenting with the full sized versions. Early Girl and Celebrity also do well with tomato gardening container use, as do Sweet 100s and Christmas Grape. Decide what size of tomato you need to grow and what purpose you want them for. For example, if you are planning to use your tomatoes primarily in salads, cherry or grape varieties will be an excellent choice.

Of course sufficient sunlight is vital with any tkind of plant. Before planting your tomatoes select the area you want to place your containers for roughly 5-6 hours of sun. Sunlight promotes good, steady growth. The right balance of water and sunlight is crucial for tomato gardening container success.
