Container Gardening Part 2

You're interested in container gardening, but you don't know what to grow or how to get started. This is the second in a series of articles examining some fruits and vegetables that grow well in containers and what they need to do so.

Why Tomatoes?

For a person who enjoys the taste of tomatoes, this question may not even need to be answered. However, for those who merely tolerate tomatoes, here are some reasons tomatoes are a good choice to grow in a container garden. They are very healthy. Tomatoes have vitamins A, B (folic acid), C, and E . In addition, tomatoes are rich in lycopene. According to the American Cancer Society , a diet high in lycopene can help reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. Of course, none of this is helpful in deciding to grow tomatoes in a container garden without knowing that certain types of tomatoes grow very well in containers. Of course, that list is not all-inclusive.

What Size Container?

The size of the pot you use will depend on the size of the plant. Some of the smaller tomato plants can get by in a one-gallon container, while others do well in a five-gallon one. With larger containers, more than one tomato plant may be able to grow--or even tomatoes and something else. If you plant your tomato plant in a smaller container and it does not seem to be doing well, you can always try potting up--transplanting your tomatoes into a larger container.

What to Use as a Container?

The options for containers are nearly endless. One obvious answer is a pot intended for household plants. However, I have even used plastic storage tubs. Wooden crates are also usable. As long as the container will not release harmful chemicals into your potting soil and meets your plants size requirement, just about any material will work. However, you will want to cut holes in the bottom if it does not already have them. This allows excess water to drain, keeping the roots from rotting.

Fertilizer

When it comes to choosing a fertilizer for your plants, it is really all a matter of personal preference. Many people are happy with commercial fertilizers, such as Miracle Grow. Others prefer organic fertilizers. Some even use their own compost. If you are interested in composting but have minimal space, you can buy or make your own compost box for your deck or patio. There are also slow-release plant foods available to mix into the potting soil.

Soil

Like fertilizer, soil comes down to personal preference. You can buy commercial potting soil--regular or organic. You could also mix your own with a combination of pine bark, peat moss, and perlite. These items can often be found at local gardening and home improvement stores.

Watering

Plants grown in containers need to be watered more frequently than plants grown in a garden in the yard. The basic rule is to water them when the soil is no longer damp. To check, stick your finger into the soil. If it feels dry, the plant needs to be watered thoroughly. However, this is just a general rule. If your plant looks like it is getting too much water, cut back. If it is starting to look too dry, water it more often.

Sunlight

You can give your plant the light it needs in a few different ways. You can put it outside in the nice weather. As an added bonus, this allows bugs to do the pollination. It can go near a south-facing window. Otherwise, an indoor gardening light will suffice.

Pollination

If you do not put your plants outside in the nice weather or if they are flowering in the winter, you may need to pollinate them in order to get tomatoes. A good way to do this is with an electric toothbrush. Otherwise, you could use a regular toothbrush or a small paintbrush.
