The Q&A Archives: Indoor Tomato Varieties

Question: What is a good tomato plant that can be grown indoors? Also is it possible to propagate herbs? Jeanine Griffin Chicago, IL

Answer: You can grow tomatoes indoors, but you'll need grow lights to get them to fruit. The best varieties to grow are "patio" types such as 'Pixie II'. They need to grow in at least 6-8 inch diameter pots, constant water and fertilizer and lights on at least 14 hours a day. Yes, you can propagate herbs. Many such as mint, thyme and oregano root easily from cuttings, while others such as basil, parsley and chives are easier grown from seed. It all depends on the herbs you have and what you want to grow. The following catalog and website offers a good selection of herbs and useful information on growing them.
