I grow mine outside and I grow them hard - only watering when the foliage begins to flag, then giving the soil/compost a real soaking. Sometimes that means only watering them once a week, even in sunny weather.
They get fed when the first truss has set and again when the second truss has set. That's all.
We get very little BER or (fingers crossed) blight, and we find the flavour of the tomatoes very good indeed.
If you listened to Gardener's Question Time last week, you'll have heard the experts recommending a similar regime to ensure well flavoured tomatoes.
