Yes, you can grow tomato plants in pots, buckets, or bags. They’re perfect for a sunny small garden, a patio, deck or balcony. You’ll need a large container with drainage holes in the bottom—one that holds at least 15 gallons of potting mix (or one that’s at least 24 inches tall and wide—the bigger the better). Add organic, soilless potting mix to within an inch of the pot’s rim. Place a...
