hi, i am a new gardener. i live in a flat so i don't have a garden but i decided to try grow tomatoes and peppers.
I stupidly planted the whole pack of seeds so now have 50 plants.
Just wondering how deep and wide an area of compost 1 plant needs.
its just so i can figure out what size of pots/how many pots/how many plants per pot.
appreciate any help!
Usually one plant per pot, regardless. But the varieties dictate the sizes of the pots. Indeterminate varieties, those that can grow to 5-6' feet or more, need bigger pots than determinate varieties (otherwise known as "bush" varieties).
Tell us which variety/ies you have and we can give you a guide.
