Growing Tomatoes in Pots
Let's face it... Growing tomatoes in pots can be challenging. Unless they are specifically engineered for container growing ie: Tiny Tim or Container Choice or others. Tomatoes grown in the ground (even in pure clay) acclimate and produce better, not to mention the constant need for water. To help tomatoes grown in containers I have had success with Mushroom Compost which can be found at garden centers (not big box stores). Add it to the potting soil at the rate of half of each really seems to do wonders for tomato plants, but you will still have to water often.
