The Q&A Archives: Hanging Tomato Plants

Question: What Kind of tomato plants
do I need to buy, to put in the upside down tomatoe

Answer: Choose some of the smaller patio tomatoes or cherry tomatoes such as Red Robin or Tiny Totem rather than the big beefsteak types. Plants naturally grow upwards so if you plant in the bottom of a hanging basket the stems will begin to grow down and then will start growing upwards because of gravity and orientation to the sun. As the stems produce leaves and fruits, the weight of these will drag the stems downward again. Essentially, the plant will be growing almost upside down, but you need to plant in the bottom, not the top of your container.
