Tomato Growpots, any good?

Posted: 15/03/2013 at 16:47
I use them for growing my cucumbers - we got ours as part of a competition prize so didn't actually buy them. I think they are useful for cues as it is easy to keep water away from the stem
I use flower buckets with the bottom cut out for my tomatoes and think this is just as good

Obelixx - our Diablo is pruned hard each year as we have a small garden and it doesn't seem to mind this treatment

Becks - you could grow some mixed lettuce leaves with jess - they grow quickly and Jess could eat them in a sandwich
