Use limited garden space as an opportunity to grow tomatoes in a hanging basket.
More in Outdoors
If garden space is limited, don't rule out growing tomatoes. Instead put them in hanging baskets:
1. Line a wire basket with sphagnum moss that's been soaked in water.
2. Amend sterilized potting soil with a slow-release fertilizer as well as some polymer pellets to increase the soil's water-holding capacity.
3. Fill the bottom of the moss-lined basket with a 1" layer of amended potting soil.
4. Choose a small-fruiting variety of tomato such as 'Sweet One-Hundred'.
5. Set the plant in the wire basket, and fill in around the root ball with soil.
6. Water the plant and cover the surface of the soil with more moss to help keep the soil moist.
Tomatoes grown in hanging baskets may need water every day in warm weather. Make sure you hang them in an area where watering won't be a problem.
