You can purchase plastic pouches for growing tomatoes upside down. Look for them in the garden section of your local Home Depot. You simply fill them with potting soil and plant your tomato plant at the bottom of the pouch. Plants tend to grow upward towards the sun and when the plant branches out and sets fruit, the tomatoes will be heavy enough to pull the branches downward. It's an interesting looking plant when it hangs like that.

enjoy!
