Maybe you would love to grow tomatoes but don’t have access to a plot of land that would be suitable. Well so long as you have room for a container and a sunny spot on your porch or balcony, you can have a fabulous container garden.
For small varieties to be grown in 3- to 5-gallon pots:
Sweet 100 Patio
For even smaller containers, including baskets, NJ.com also recommends the “Florida Basket, “Floragold Basket,” and “Micro Tom,” which needs as little as four inches of soil to grow.
For medium to large container tomatoes, look for “Jetstar,” “Celebrity,” “Early Girl” and “Better Boy VFN.”
And if you also happen to be a fan of peppers like I am, looking for some companion plants at NJ.com’s Peppers and Tomatoes that grow well in containers.
