Best Way to Grow Tomatoes in a Container

  1. Germinate the seeds & let the saplings grow to a height of 8 inches.
  2. Make the final growing medium ready.
  3. Carefully uproot each sapling. Scrap the stems almost up to the leaves with a fine blade. Apply rooting hormone (for softwood plants) to the scrapped portion.
  4. Plant the sapling all the way up to the leaves.
  5. Tend to the plants in the usual way.

The plants grow a very dense network of roots and will need a lot of watering/nutrients and will bear abundant fruits.

We have tried this with a bottle guard ( Family Cucurbitaceae) with no great result. We will try with potatoes next.
