Added to my tomato list, but would love some advice..
I've added a few determinates (to my list) to try in containers this year. I also found a couple misc. varieties I want to try in-ground. ("giants" & heirlooms). Any advice or comments are very welcome!
This is my first attempt at container toms, I realize there is a myriad of sizes people grow in, but to maximize yield is bigger always better or is adequate equally as effective? How big is an adequate pot exactly? I know there is a container gardener's forum, but I'd appreciate some Okie growers opinions since our summers get so ridiculously hot here. I've read some people use as small as 5-10gal. pots, but that seems terribly small plus wouldn't the roots get too hot here? Thoughts?
Silvery Fir (growing for looks primarily)
New Big Dwarf
(I'm especially interested in feedback about this last one. My grandmother is a German Mennonite that grew up in Corn, OK. I have been her caregiver for 7yrs, she celebrated her 95th birthday in Nov! I simply adore her and would welcome any info regarding this heirloom even if its only that it tastes good :) )
