I finally successfully grew tomatoes in pots last year. They were on a balcony in full sun. I used 5 gallon pots. The trick is to plant the plants very deep (cut off bottom leaves so stem goes deep), soak them every other day when it is hot and use a tomato fertilizer (mine was Armstrong's, which is where I bought the plants as well), once a week. I had so many I was giving them away like crazy because we couldn't eat them fast enough. I am in Santa Monica, CA. (02/24/2010)
