The Q&A Archives: container gardening for tomatoes

Question: I purchased a large wooden barrel - big enough for 4 diff tomato plants/stakes. One, now 2 more appear wilted/dying. The fruit grew to about 1" on one plant then a dark spot appeared then dropped off. The others look like they'll do the same. I have the barrel positioned South side of the house and there is a hole in it's bottom for drainage. I used Home Depot's organic soil for vegetables.
