I'm planning my garden for this spring, and I am planting Roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and tomatillos. Should I group them together by type? Or mix them up? It's a container garden. I live in Fort Worth Texas, and this is my second year growing. I'm starting them from seeds. Thanks for your help!!

Depending upon the size of your containers, you can plant only one Roma or one cherry tomato or one tomatillo in each container. For one of any of these plants, you will need at least 5 gallons, bigger will be better.

Also, as your climate is hot, buy insulated pots or plan to insulate them. Your plants won't be happy with hot feet.

Welcome! @ Hurray! for YOU !!!
Group them together. Tomatillos get tall. Plant reg green type. I planted purple ones last year. They didnt do for beans for me. Romas are short. 3 or 4 feet. Cherries ! They go crazy. I planted one next to a 6 ft fence and it grew over fence, down to bottom of fence, and more ##!!!!
Lots of trash, unless you have mulch pile. I only planted it cause i got some free seeds. Not again ! Thumbs down Rolling on the floor laughing
I allways plant determine varieties. They do just as well and only get 3 or 4 ft tall. Happy growing 😁!!!
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
