Q.Best size container for indeterminate tomatoes

Zone Tyler, tx - NE TX | Depnomore added on May 2, 2014 | Answered

I need to get containers for these types of tomatoes:

Better boy
Big boy
Early girl – 50 day

How big should they be? I have a water hose very close, no problem there. Should I use something bulky besides potting mix to fill these containers? I have 16 plants.

The most popular size seems to be 5 gallon - buckets are inexpensive at the big box stores. Don't put anything but soil in the container - the more room for roots, the better.
