Container Tomato Plants

Garden Containers

Anonymous added on July 23, 2011 | Answered

I have some old iron containers, no bottoms so the drainage would be good. I'm just concerned about the amount of rust on these containers. I think the rust will leach into the tomato plants and I just want to make sure it is not a heath issue when the tomatoes are consumed.

The rusty iron itself will not be an issue. Just make sure that there were no harmful substances stored in the containers before.
