Tomatoes for balcony cultivation


Joined Oct 11, 2018
Hay! How are you doing? A few weeks ago I bought tomatoes seeds. They are for balcony cultivation so it is a perfect alternative for me - a person who doesn't own her yard and live in a flat. But in a few years it will change! Anyway, I have never grown tomatoes from seeds..I always had seedlings of tomatoes that I bought somewhere so could you tell me any tips for growing them from 0? If it will help you this is the variety that I bought: https://gardenseedsmarket.com/tomato-bajaja-low-growing-cherry-type-variety-with-trailing-habit-for-balcony-cultivation.html . What is the depth of a pot for them?

There are a lot of people that grow tomatoes in 5 gallon buckets, there are tons of videos online, but you basically drill a few holes add a layer of gravel then a soil/pearlite/fertilizer mix. The best deals I've found on buckets are from the deli or bakery department at the grocery stores. I can get them for $1 each.

Besides growing produce in the ground and in buckets as well as large clay pots, I have also used grow boxes with good success. Not cheap by any means but they work well. When I got mine years ago, they did not offer fertilizer as they do now. Here is a link:
