Essential Tips for Growing Small Tomatoes in Containers

Plant the suitable variety

Patio or bush tomato plant varieties are the best choices for container-growing tomatoes. Although these tomatoes grow only 1 to 3 feet tall, they can still produce hundreds of tomatoes in one season. 

These pot-friendly varieties include the Small Fry, Bush Early Girl, Tiny Tim, and Patio Choice Yellow tomatoes. 

2. Use a large pot.

Use a large pot
Image: HGTV

The best pot for growing small tomatoes are those which can hold at least 5 gallons of soil and are 20 inches wide or more. 

Tomatoes develop a wide root system and need as much room to establish their roots. With a broad and deep pot, the tomato plant will have enough room for its roots to grow. 

Using a large pot will also ensure the tomato plant receives enough water and nutrients during its growing season. 

However, avoid using black containers since they absorb plenty of heat and can cause the roots to warm up and stunt the plant’s growth.

We recommend using plastic or fiberglass rather than clay pots since their materials don’t dry out quickly. We wouldn’t want dry soil because it will hamper the plant’s tomato production.

3. Provide drainage.

Provide drainage

After choosing the right large container for your tomato plant, don’t forget to drill holes at the bottom. We want to keep the roots moist but not soggy.

These drainage holes will allow excess water to escape and prevent root rot and other plant diseases. 

4. Use a well-drained potting mix.

Potting mix is the best choice of soil for small tomato plants. They are lightweight and provide good drainage so fill your container with high-quality potting mix until an inch from the top of its rim. 

5. Feed the tomato plant.

Feed the tomato plant

Regularly introduce balanced NPK slow-release fertilizers in the potting mix to give the tomato plant the necessary nutrients. It’s best to fertilize your plant every 4 to 6 weeks to replenish any nutrient deficiency. 

Adding a one-inch layer of mulch on top of the potting soil is also highly advisable to preserve soil moisture and protect the plant from too much heat. You can use chopped leaves, shredded bark, straw and wood chips as mulch for your potted tomato plant.

6. Give plenty of sunlight.

Give plenty of sunlight

Tomatoes are sun-loving plants that need at least 6 to 8 hours of full sun daily. Sunlight is essential in the tomato plant’s growth and encourages it to produce flavorful fruits. 

So, place them in a sunny location, like the south or west side of the building, for optimum growth and yield. 

7. Water the plants daily.

Water the plants daily
Image: All About Gardening

Tomato plants tend to get thirsty and need watering at least once a day. The best time to water them is in the morning so they’d get hydrated, and there will be enough time for the damp leaves to dry out during the day. 

These plants dry out quickly when grown in containers, so you may need to water them once or twice daily during summer. They need consistent moisture to grow evenly and to avoid wilting, splitting or developing blossom end rot.

Make sure to water directly onto the roots and not on the leaves of the tomato plant. When water gets splashed on the leaves, especially the low-lying ones, they become habitable to harmful bacteria and viruses that can cause plant diseases.

8. Give plant space and support.

Providing good air circulation also helps prevent tomato plant diseases since leaves will quickly dry out. Place your tomato plant away from the walls or from touching other neighboring plants.

Small tomato varieties can be grown in large containers, but most need wooden stakes or cages to prevent the bending or breaking of stems. We want to protect these items since that’s where the ripe tomatoes grow upon maturity.

As the tomato plant grows, you can further secure the stems with twine, ribbon or wire for additional support.

9. Enjoy harvesting ripe tomatoes.

Generally, small tomato varieties can be harvested after 60 to 100 days from planting. 

But don’t get too excited when you see them growing on the vine. It’s best to leave these tiny tomatoes on the vine until they are fully ripe to maximize their flavor. 

Other characteristics of a ripe tomato include a glossy skin, deep and uniform color, easy release from the stem, and strong tomato fragrance.
