    Hey guys, does anyone plant tomatoes in pots? I was thinking about having a few plants on my deck. What kind do you like? Is it possible to do little cherry tomatoes in lots as well?
    Mega ks for the help!

    I do 3 cherry tomato plants in patio pots every year, nothing special get them from Walmart, I like using Miracle gro potting soil, water often & wait till ready. I wrap mine with chicken wire as it seems the squirrels like to dig in them. Good Luck

    Before I bought a house and built a garden I’d just use a 5 gallon bucket with a few holes drilled in the bottom. Had to water regularly but was more than pleased with the production. Cherry 100’s and romas did the best. I also put chicken wire around the cages to fight off the squirrels.

    An uncle of mine always grows a couple of roma plants off of porch in hanging posts every year with great results. Easy peasy.

    Last year I took a couple of the yellow cherry tomatoes from Walmart, cut them into 1/3s. Put them in miracle grow potting soil inside strawberry containers (mini green houses), set containers in a pan with some water in it. Set them in our sunroom. transplanted into larger containers when necessary, then out side. Plants ended up over 4 ft tall. Produced a bunch of what I planted.

    Thanks for the advice. I think I will do some cherry tomatoes and another bigger variety.
