Planting Tomatoes in hanging baskets

Hi, this year I've grown 'Tomato 'Terenzo F1 Hybrid' from seed for my hanging baskets. How many plants would you recommend planting in a large 15 in basket?

    Bump for Kirkigirl.....and me as I've grown Tumbling toms and would like to know the same.

    Welcome to the forum by the way.

    I would say one plant per basket as they will spread quite a bit and they are hungry plants when cropping.

    They're a bushy variety, I'd go with one plant per basket. Overcrowd them and you'll compromise growth and production.

  • Thank you so much for all your replies and great advice. As I've only grown five plants from seed I can share them out - my hanging baskets seem to be breeding this year!

    Would that be the same for Tumbling Toms?  Thanks

    I grow a single tumbling tom in a 15" hanging basket. 
    Hung on the corner of my shed and facing south, I get seemingly hundreds of toms every year.
    Only 1 per basket though. As stated above they're hungry feeders, but don't use tomato feed until the first tiny toms form on the truss.
    Last year I picked tumbling toms from july until end august.
    Good luck


    Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
    Because if you do it today and you like it - you can do it again tomorrow.

    Fab, thanks Pete.  As with everything else I'm growing I think I may have too many, about 15 yellow and 15 red!!

    I will be giving some away image
