There are many advantages to growing tomatoes in pots and with the right knowledge and preparation it is fun and really easy to do. Something that will help get all that is needed in place is the e-book, “Your Guide to Growing Big, Juicy Tomatoes,” it will ensure you get to enjoy the best results from your efforts. The truth is that tomatoes can really grow easily and well in most places as long as certain conditions are present for long enough for your tomatoes to grow and ripen.
The Difficulty With Pots
In deciding on growing tomatoes in pots it is wise to get an understanding of the conditions you will need to be aware of to achieve success. The best conditions include a certain number of hours of sunlight each day, and a temperature range for air and soil that is optimal. Then there is your soil conditioning and preparation and watering. Too much water can drown a plant and too little won’t work either. Then are you starting with seeds or purchasing seedlings from your local nursery or maybe going with heirloom varieties from Seed Savers for instance. These are my favorites.
Indoors or Outdoors
Some people who live in rather harsh or unpredictable environments, or who don’t have space for an outdoor garden of any kind (even in pots), will prefer to plant an indoor garden by growing tomatoes in pots. Others may want to grow tomatoes above ground simply so they don’t have to tear up their yard or for ease in preparing the soil. Whatever your desire is, you will need to prepare your environment as much as possible. The book explores preparing the temperature of an indoor space as well as finding suitable lighting. For outdoor spaces, you will want to find a spot with a suitable amount of sunlight.
Go Big Or Small
You may be wondering if you should start your seeds or little plants in a smaller pot and then transplant them to a bigger pot later, or if you should start growing tomatoes in pots that are of a larger size. This is indeed a good question, and you will find those answers in this book. You should be aware that there is an ideal time to transplant seedlings or smaller plants into a larger space, whether that space is a larger pot or the ground. You do want to give your plant plenty of time to establish roots below the surface before it gets too top heavy.
When growing tomatoes in pots, you also want to pay attention to the type of soil you choose to grow in, as tomatoes love nutrient-rich or freshly fertilized soil. Stay away from chemicals. Use natural fertilizers especially if you want your tomatoes to be healthy and taste great for you. You can learn more about which types of fertilizers are best as well as how often they should be applied to your plants. If you want as organic as possible then that is covered too.
