First time posting and first time gardening.
My dad has a small farm in Michigan and brought down some tomatoes that my family went crazy over and we decided to give it a crack. We saved the last tomato and cut into quarters and planted it and viola! Then I noticed they were turning brown and yellow and then my research started(I know, bass ackwards). Now I have them in separate pots and started to water regularly and added some natural fertilizer. They are doing better but then I may have done it again, and the reason I am posting.
I went and bought a large whiskey barrel planter and put one or my dads tomatoes and a Bonnie Original and Improved Park's Whopper in the same container.
I asked the people at Lowe's and they said they would be fine but I would like to get some feedback from you all.
Is this ok?
Will I get a different tomato from the seeds that are produced from the fruit due to cross pollination?
Thank you for you help and patience
