Julie provides 10 tips that will help you to  grow tomatoes in containers. Container gardening allows you to grow this veggie on patios, balconies, rooftops, and in gardens with poor soil.

As Julie says:

“Growing tomatoes in pots levels the home garden playing field, bringing a crop of homegrown ‘maters within reach for almost anyone, regardless of real estate. That’s because you can grow tomatoes in pots just about anywhere you have a sunny spot, whether it’s on a deck, driveway, balcony, rooftop, fire escape, or somewhere else. Just follow these 10 tips.”

Some of the things she discusses:

  • Picking a site
  • Picking the right pot
  • Picking the right tomato (she has a tool for this)
  • How to Plant
  • Best Soil
  • Watering
  • And more!

One neat trick – If you’re planting on  patio or balcony, you can use the railing as a trellis for your tomato plants!
