Tips for Growing Tomatoes in an Urban Garden
Tomatoes are a staple in every home. So it makes sense to give it a try and grow them at home. But for urban farmers, you need extra research due to limited space.
Homegrown tomatoes taste better and are blemish free. They are also firm but juicy with a sweet but tangy taste. You also get to know where your food is coming from.
Determinate varieties – Determinate tomato plants are smaller and more compact than indeterminate varieties. They make a good choice for urban gardens. They also have a shorter growing season. This is a big plus in areas with a shorter growing season.
Tomatoes need a lot of space, if you consider growing tomatoes in pots, Backyard Gardeners Network recommends you choose a large pot. A suitable pot should be twenty inches in diameter. But for most dwarf varieties, you can still grow them in smaller containers.
