Hello to all, I am new here and a novice gardener.
Since my family and I love homegrown tomatoes, I want to plant a tomato-only garden. OK, I'll confess, I'm already obsessed with tomatoes and know that I have too many plants.
I have enough space for a 10' x 25' garden (Hubby says I can't have the entire backyard--but I love him anyway.)
The seedling tags state to allow 3' between plants. I would like to plant as many plants as possible (who doesn't), to make the best use of my garden space.
I see that a number of you grow 2 plants in rubbermaid storage bins. (I'd rather not do any containers, but I might try a couple.)
Is spacing different for garden-grown and container-grown plants?
How much garden space do my plants really need?
I prefer beefsteak types; 2 hybrid, 4 heirloom, plus 1 plum-type and 2 cherry tomato varieties.
Thanks, in advance, for your help.
