What types are best for growing in containers? Do potted tomatoes need special care?
The best tomatoes for growing in pots are cherry tomatoes. They do well in containers (at least 16 inches deep and wide), and need watering
and feeding more often than tomatoes growing in the ground. The bigger the container, the less frequently you'll have to water
in hot weather, and the more room roots have to run. A half whiskey or wine barrel is perfect.
