do dwarf tomato plants need caging and staking?
By dwarf varieties I'm referring to compact and determinate varieties of cherry and grape tomatoes.
Do they have to be caged or staked?
The one I'd like to grow is a grape variety called tomato totem; the dimensions of the plant are 12"-18".
Also what size containers should the dwarf varieties be grown in? I don't have the space to grow them in the ground; I use container gardening because that's the most feasible option for me with gardening.
I was thinking of using a container with a capacity of 1-5 gallons for a dwarf cherry tomato plant? Would this be big enough size?
How many plants would be able to fit in a 5 gallon container with dwarf cherry tomato plants? Only one? Or could I do more than one without overcrowding?
I'd like to know what size container is the right size to grow them in so I don't cramp the plant and grow it in too small a space.
