My tomato plant is about half a metre high and is a moneymaker variety, (didn;t know until I had already bought and planted it.)

It has one cluster of yellow flowers which the bees have visited, will it be ok in a pot about 25cm in diameter, and should I go out and buy anything for it, or will it be ok, tied to canes or just have canes around it pushed deep in to tne ground so they are sturdy.

By the way it looks really healthy.

I will post photos on my blog

Thanks in advance




Hi Alex, One cane pushed into the ground should do. Tie the plant to it and feed with tomato feed. I always use Tomorite, it's a personal thing but I find it to be the best.

My Nan used to use Tomorite every year when growing tomatoes, so I know that it is a good reliable brand.

Thanks for the advice
