Hi has anyone tried growing hanging basket variety of Tomatoes and any tips on growing them??
I have recently potted up 3 plants ( Tumbling Tom Red) into 1 hanging basket as recommended from the nursery i bought them from, and plan to hang them on a south facing wall.
Any tips on how to get the best crop?
Feed and water regularly-but do not put it outside permanently for at least another 4 weeks -it is still too cold at night-you could soon start putting out in the day -but bringing in at night-to gradually getting them used to being outside
thanks Lazy gardener, ive got them indoors in a southfacing room at the mo!!
Ive never had much luck with tomatoes, so hoping these hanging varieties are better!!
Do i need to nip out the tops of them once established to encourage them to be bushier, or just leave them as they are?
Thanks for your advice
Beth, don't bother nipping out the tops. Tumbling Tom are a determinate (bush) variety, meaning they will limit their branch growth themselves.
rrrr thanks people for your help!!!
