Prepare the planting hole well, at least twice as large as the pot. Incorporate organic matter such as compost , and a handful of blood fish and bone. Water in well. Mulch in winter. Feed in spring.

A bit late in the season for potting on Toms. Where are you?

Anywhere north of the midlands, and you will not get ripe tomatoes this year.

Please put the planter square on the stand. I am known for my exuberant untidyness, but that's bringing out the OCD.

The usual way to train espaliers up against a wall is to start with one or two year old whips, a single stem. If yours is already multibranched, you will have to do some careful pruning to get the right shape. I would do that and move the tree with as large a rootball as you can get, in winter when the tree is dormant.
