Q.Watering Upside Down Plants

Anonymous added on June 13, 2011 | Answered

I’ve planted two tomato plants in upside down plastic baskets. I’ve mixed potting soil, compost, and peat moss. My question is: how do I determine the correct amount to water these tomatoes (Hybrid ‘Early girl’ and Beef Steak)? I understand you should be very careful with the amount of water that is added.

It is rather difficult to over water an upside down planter. Most of the time, people do not water enough. Water it until the water comes out the bottom and then water it every time the soil just starts to turn dry at the top. Most likely, you will be watering everyday, or close to it.
