I grow mine outside in what can be a blustery garden in Norfolk - I use big plastic pots the size of large buckets, and a bamboo cane and soft twine. I've grown all types, usually cordons, including large Russians and Marmandes as well as Sungold and large plum tomatoes.
They've withstood all sorts of conditions - if there's a very strong wind forecast I move them up close to the fence and occasionally have been known to put a loop of twine around the top of the cane and fix it to the fence so the pots don't blow over.
I think you're right Steve, in that it's the selection of pots that's important - plenty of depth gives stability to the cane and the plant roots.
