How to Grow Huge Tomato Plants in Pots

Growing tomatoes has never been so easy!

And you don’t need a big space to yield hundreds of pounds of tomatoes from just a handful of container plants.

This step-by-step guide will show you how to grow tomatoes in pots with big results—even if you don’t have a “proper” garden.

1. Choose the right type of tomato.

A good rule of thumb is to grow determinate tomatoes if you have a short growing season, got a late start in the season, or have a very limited footprint.

If, on the other hand, you have a decent growing season and enough space for a large, tall plant, indeterminate tomatoes will give you abundant harvests all summer long and are totally doable in containers!

2. Start with a strong and healthy transplant.

Ideally, the tomato plants you start with should have been repotted at least once, and hardened off properly so they’re ready to live outside in the sun.

3. Don’t be shy with container size, and choose a fabric pot over a plastic pot.

When it comes to tomatoes, the bigger the pot, the better.

4. Use high-quality potting soil.

I recommend using a high-quality premium potting soil or potting mix, and try to avoid reusing potting soil from past seasons if your plants had pests or diseases.
