The Q&A Archives: Growing Tomatoes In Hanging Baskets

Question: I see that you offer a variety called Patio Hybrid Tumbler that's specifically suitable for hanging baskets, but am wondering if I could grow any other cherry varieties this way? I'd especially like to try the pear shaped yellow and the orange types....

Answer: In my experience, many types of tomatoes can actually be grown from a hanging container, but the container size is very important. Patio types are adjusted to growing in the smaller root area found in a hanging basket. The limited root run will affect the size and production of what would normally be rather larger plants. If you don't mind experimenting, why not use the largest hanging container you can and give it a try!
