Due to bad soil, I planted my tomato plants in individual large pots. My question is how often should I fertilize the plants and what would be the best fertilizer?

Because your plants are in containers you'll want to be extra careful with fertilizers. I think the best approach is to feed with a half strength dilution of a water soluable fertilizer such as Miracle Gro. Feed every 3-4 weeks with this solution all season long. You'll be able to avoid burning the roots of your tomato plants, and you'll still be supplying a constant level of nutrients so your plants can thrive. Hope you have a great harvest!
