I have grown toms using the ring culture method for about 3 years and have had a lot of success, but i have always put three tom plants in one bag, only this year i will do what Monty suggests and put two to a bag. The one thing i will try is to fill the inner ring with John Innes no3 and see if i get any better results.

After 10yrs of successfully growing tom's I thought to save space I'd try grow bags this year. This vid anwered all my Q, the advice was spot on. I will be keeping to my pots. Thanx Monty
