Is a 5 gallon bucket big enough to grow tomatoes in?
Some guy is selling five gallon plastic buckets that were used to store honey in for a dollar apiece. Would these be big enough to grow tomatoes in, and if I use them should I drill holes in the bottom or sides or both? Remember a five gallon bucket would be bigger than what the horiculture industry calls a five gallon pot, which is really about 3.75 to 4 gallons, because a 5 gallon nursery pot will fit inside a five gallon bucket with room to spare. If too small what size would you recommend, either in gallons or actual dimensions?
