How to Grow Tomatoes Without a Yard

Advertisements

Would you love to start a tomato garden, but you don't have any land to grow your tomatoes in? Many people find that they want to take on tomato gardening, but feel that they cannot, due to a lack of having a large. Well, even if you live in an apartment, without a garden, this article will show you how to grow tomatoes without a yard.

An easy option when it comes to growing tomatoes without having any land is to use a tomato planter. They are basically little containers in which to grow tomatoes. Many stores sell them, and they come in a wide variety of sizes and materials.

A free alternative to buying tomato planters is to use a container as a substitute. This is a much more cost effective option for growing tomatoes, as just about any container will do. I have had success growing the tomatoes in old buckets. All you have to do is to drill a couple of holes in the bottom of the bucket for water to filter through.

I recommend that you get a large tomato planter (or whatever type of container you are using) as tomato plants can grow really large. The last thing that you want to do is to restrict the size which your tomato plants grow to. A larger container, with more soil, will also retain water for longer therefore you will need to water your tomatoes less often.

Since you are looking to grow tomatoes without having any outside land, you can place the containers on your porch, as they will be close to sunlight and fresh air. Just make sure though, that the tomato plants are not exposed to outside conditions, such as frost. If you cannot find space on your porch, then place them in a room where the tomatoes will be close to a large window. You should keep curtains open so that maximum sunlight can enter the room.

Be sure to get yourself some high quality planting soil. Most gardening stores will sell organic growing soil, and this is a great option as the soil has all the nutrients you tomatoes will need to grow big and juicy. Avoid flower potting soil, mainly because of the fact that their ph and nutrient levels are not conducive to growing veggies.

Now that you know it is possible to grow tomatoes without yard space, you can finally attempt to grow your tomato plants. Just remember to get a large container (if you are not going to be using a tomato planter), organic tomato growing soil.
