Growing Tomatoes In ContainersPrinter Friendly Version
In a recent gardeners’ survey, the tomato took first place in the homegrown vegetable popularity contest. And … no surprise … it wasn’t even close—cucumbers and peppers, in second and third place, were 40 points behind! The fresh-picked tomato experience is not just for those that own a sunny plot of rich soil. You can successfully grow tomatoes in containers on a patio, deck, or even a fire escape, as long as it captures at least 6 hours of sunlight a day.
