I would like to know how to plant a cherry tomato garden. I am just an 11 year old kid. What fertilizer would be best? (Please suggest a specific brand.)

Well, the first question is, will you be growing your cherry tomatoes in the ground or in a container? If you will be growing them in a container, then this article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/growing-tomatoes-pots-containers.htm If you are planting them in the ground, than you may find our tomato growing guide very helpful: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/tomato/growing-tomatoes-guide.htm But for all of this information, you should know that tomatoes are very, very easy to grow. Pick a place to plant them that gets lots of sun, put some compost or composted manure in the soil (You can find bags of this at the hardware store. They normally sell them as generic bags with no brand name), put them in the soil and keep them well watered and you will get lots of cherry tomatoes this summer. By the way, my kids favorite cherry tomato is called Max's Wild Cherry. They grow huge and taste very sweet.
