Hello all -
I am posting this topic in the tomato forum as well, so I can get the widest variety of feedback. Any and all feedback is welcome, so please comment if you've grown tomatoes at all! While I am asking specifically concerning container plants, any experience with tomatoes will be beneficial, as this is my first time growing tomatoes at all. Please comment!
Here are my questions:
1. How tall does the average tomato plant (indeterminate) grow? If you can give me a specific height with a specific varietal, that would be a great answer as well.
2. What method of support do you use when growing tomatoes and why? IE: stakes, cages, hanging, etc
3. What are the positives and negatives of the various methods of supports you've used? This is the question I am most interested in, so please don't skimp on words! I'll read whatever you write.
Thanks to everyone who reads and comments. I understand that growing container tomatoes is more difficult and attention-demanding than growing them in the ground. I have no choice in this matter, as I don't have ground to plant in, and must make do with my patio. But I want home-grown tomatoes! Thanks for your help guys!
