Hi - I've purchased 3 x 8.5cm tumbling tomato plants and want to put them into my hanging basket. Is it OK to plant all 3 in one basket or do they need more space? Basket size is 12" x 8" deep. Thanks Pat Woodings
You will only want to plant one per hanging basket. Though they are more compact than other cultivars, a single plant will take up the entire basket. Planting more than one in the container will cause competition and you may lose one, or all of the plants. It will be best to plant them separately.
Here is an article that will help you to grow tomatoes:
Should I put more than one plant iin each basket?
As long as the planter is 2 gallons or more, then 1 will be fine. Anything under 2 gallons will not support a full grown tomato plant.
Dwarf tomato varieties will do much better in hanging baskets than standard will.
