Growing Tomatoes in Early September 2015

I grew my tomatoes using the method described on the website (www.vegetable-garden-guide.com/how-to-grow-tomatoes.html) this year.


Preparing greenhouse soil, hole in underside of growbag, using a planting ring, planting tomatoes in growbags and filling ring when plant was tall enough to encourage more feeding roots from the stem.

I have had amazing results. The best tomatoe crop in years! I've been growing tomatoes for about 25 years in total!

I had a nasty few caterpillars eat away some leaves but this was soon taken care of.... It was around early June and I found out it was a type of moth that loves tomato leaves.

A small frog took delight in making me jump when he leapt out during watering! But he took care of the slugs!

I would say that two plants per bag worked, but I will investigate how much grow bag soil was left root free.... I might try three plants next year....Amazing results and still more to ripen..... First tomatoes picked mid July and still picking!

Thanks for the advice!

Hi John,

Thank you for sharing!

I'm so pleased for you and your success. It gives me a real delight to know others are getting a real benefit from what I share from my own experiences of trial and error...

I choose to plant two tomato plants per bag to give enough room for air to circulate. But that's a personal choice, it would be interesting to know the results of three plants per bag should you go ahead.

I wish you all success for next years crop!

Laurence
