Tomatoes

What growing medium and fertilizer is best to use for growing tomatoes? I am doing a self watering container garden this year and need some advice.

Thanks

Re: Tomatoes

barfussc, if you will scroll down on the main page, there is a forum dedicated to container gardening. They are the best source for answering you container questions. Oh, welcome to the forum!

I use 40 Earthboxes to grow my tomatoes. If not familiar with them, they are SWCs (self watering containers). I use Promix BX in them. Already has the dolomite lime needed, and also has mycorrhizae in it, which help the tomato roots fix nutrients.( not exactly correct, but thats the gist of it! :) )
My definition of insanity; trying to grow heirloom tomatoes in South Florida!
