One way to grow a tomato plant is in a special type of hanging basket (Image 1). The tomato actually grows upside down with the fruit at the bottom rather than the top. The plant goes into the plastic planter, which then secures around the stem. Turn it upside down and feed and water it through the opening in the top (Image 2). A hanging planter can hold one or two tomato plants, depending on the size of the variety you choose.
Another way to grow tomatoes is in a large container such as an old trash can (Image 3).
Drill a few holes in the bottom and add a few inches of gravel for water drainage.
Punch or cut holes in the bottom of a regular trash bag, place it in the can (Image 1) and add soil halfway up the sides (Image 2).
