Can anybody tell me whether it is a better idea to grow tomatoes outside in a growbag or, can the crop be just as good, if you grow directly into the ground.
There is another alternative, that is to use 'tomato planters'. These are the same as growbags, except they have about twice the amount of compost.
The problem is they cost more than the traditional growbag, although you may see them as a bargain sometimes...I bought mine yesterday from a garden centre who were offering them as 'buy one get one free' deal.
Also it helps to plant your plants in bottomless pots (as seen on the home-page) and place them on the growbag.
