Multiple cherry tomatoe plants
May 27, 2007 10:47pm CST
I am new to planting vegies in pots. I purchased 4 cherry tomatoe plants and decised to pot plant them. I asked the garden centre and they said that as long as it was a large pot they should be fine. They are in a 14inch wide by 11 high pot and they are growing great and I have even seen some small flowers starting. My concern is should I put them in thier own pots or will they do fine in the one large pot. thanks bb smiles

I did the same exact thing as you're doing, last year. My only concern was keeping tabs on how big they grew! Really, the cherry tomatoes were all over the place, growing shoots faster than I could rearrange them, and soon they'd tangled up with the grape tomatoes...and then my morning glories started grabbing at them! I had a hopeless tangle of vines and stems. But oh, did I get lots of tomatoes! Best to keep poking them down by pinching them off a little. That's what I'll do this year, if I have the time to get any in the ground!

Oh this is very interesting, last summer a friend of mine gave me one cherry tomato plant and I got so many little tomatoes from it I am planning to have a couple of plants next summer, this was the first time I had grown anything like that but I was rapt, every day I would go out and pick a few tomatoes and eat them while I was sitting in the sun it was nice....I will keep watching what people tell you...happy picking

I always have my tomatoe plants in separate buckets. They grow better in buckets than in the earth. I have two friends who both have huge containers for growing tomatoes and they both plant several plants into them and I think their crop is bigger than mine. In any case, tomatoes grow very good in containers and taste delicious sunripened.
