Tomatoes

lucille(Houston)February 2, 2014

I am interested in intensive gardening since my space is limited. I plan to devote two beds to pepper and eggplants.

I do not think I'm understanding correctly, I don't think a full size tomato plant can grow in one square and I saw that on one of the sf sites I was reading through. How many square feet do you allow for each tomato plant?

I grow my tomato plants to 1 sq. I grow only indeterminate (vining) type tomato plants and allow them to grow along the trellis. I keep my plants to just 1 leader sometimes 2.
