I think I've told the story before, but my local fruttivendolo in the town grows his own toms and we swap seedlings every year. Last year he gave me too many. I left the spares in a bucket with only the soil that was hanging onto the roots. Forgot all about them. Not a drop of water, nothing. They flowered and were producing fruit when they finally gave up the ghost.
That's why I always bang on about overwatering and overfertilising. Toms just don't need it.
