Tips for Growing Tomatoes in Hanging baskets

Successful growth for hanging basket tomato seeds depends on a few factors. Produce tasty, juicy and vibrant tomatoes with these tips: 

  • Choose the right tomato variety: The best tomatoes for hanging grow well and produce heavily. Some types are bred distinctly for hanging baskets, such as Tomato Tumbling Tom, with flowing vines and bright fruit. Pick your seeds with varied colors, sizes and shapes.
  • Invest in a strong basket: Select a pot around 12 to 14 inches in diameter that holds at least 5 gallons of soil. Lighter-colored baskets are better for reducing heat during summer. 
  • Line your basket: Prepare your basket with a solid brown layer to keep moisture in the soil. Choose a moss or coconut liner with holes for drainage. 
  • Use high-potassium fertilizer: Fill three-fourths of your basket with potassium-rich liquid fertilizer. Slow-release fertilizer and liquid gels help extend the time between watering. Moisture retains plump and smooth surfaces on the tomatoes. 
  • Plant seeds deeply: Tomatoes need room for their vines to grow. Create a central hollow in the soil and plant the seed deeply. Make sure to water the seeds after planting. 
  • Hang in sunny areas: Place your plant so it receives eight hours of sun daily. Hanging tomatoes on the edge of porches or patios works well. South-facing sides with optimal sunlight and shade in the afternoon offer the best lighting.
