    Why not try all three? That way you can compare and see what comes good.image

    Ive gone with hanging basket, grow bag and a large pot,all outside now although started inside in all cases.

    Baskets and large pot have small green fruit on at the moment.  Grow bags are flowering.

    I am new to growing tomatoes and have 3 plants growing in the soil in a very sunny spot. They are  growing well but there are lots of stems growing in different directions. What should I do? Cut all but the main stalks off? They have flowers and I see early signs of fruit. Thanks

    Hi TiaC - do you know what sort of tomatoes you have - did they come with a  variety name, or are they called 'Bush type' or anything like that?
