Growing Tomatoes in Containers

I just bought a tomato plant in a 3 gallon container, it is about 2 1/2 ft tall. Should I transfer it to a larger container? It's almost ready to spring tomatoes.

I know some people will say that you should transfer it and tomatoes need a lot of soil, but personally I have grown big tomato plants in regular flower pots (around 1 gallon each) and have gotten some great harvests from them in those small pots! Just water and fertilize often. I think your pot is just fine. (03/30/2010)

I agree with haushinka. Also if you transplant you could disturb the roots and end of killing the tomato plant. (03/30/2010)
