If you have an area that receives at least 6-8 hours of sun a day during the summer, such as a patio, deck, or small backyard, you can grow Tomatoes in containers. Any pot roughly the size of a six-gallon bucket will work, as long as it has drainage holes in the bottom. Use a good-quality potting mix because soil from the ground won’t drain well and may rot the plants’ roots. Watch as nursery manager Barbara Pierson tips a young Tomato seedling out of its pot and plants it into a large container. She discusses potting mix and amendments, how deep to plant, when to stake, and the best way to find out if your plant needs water. Visit whiteflowerfarm.com to learn more.
