Determinate types (also called bush, compact, or patio plants) are usually the best tomato plants for containers, as they grow to a predetermined size.
Ideally, the tomato plants you start with should have been repotted at least once, and hardened off properly so they’re ready to live outside in the sun.
When it comes to tomatoes, the bigger the pot, the better.
Plants in containers need a good combination of breathability, absorption, and moisture retention.
Tomatoes are heavy feeders and need ample nutrients to produce well and long into the season.
