Talkback: How to grow tomatoes in a growing bag

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:28
My wife grew some tomato plants in two of those upside down tomato planters and also had very good results, so i think she will be growing some more toms in them this year. What may be a good idea is to use John Innes no3 instead of using compost from a growbag as tomatoes are greedy feeders, it will be interesting to see what the results are and maybe grow them that way next year.

Talkback: How to feed your plants

It is most important to feed plants in borders and pots as Kay Curtis mentioned in her comment back in March. I use either chicken pellets or growmore and a watering of tomato food to plants when in bud once a week.

What a great idea for my bird table, i may also modify this to give my lawn feeder a roof to keep the bird food dry. Many thanks for this idea.

Talkback: How to grow tomatoes in grow bags and pots

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:28
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.
