Questions & Answers

How long can U keep tomato plant in a sunny window before planting

Asked by: cityfarmer
Cityfarmer, This tomato will need to be transplanted into a larger container soon. You can still keep it in doors in a sunny spot. They require 6+ hours of sun a day. A Better Boy Tomato will not be a good choice to grow indoors due to they can reach 7ft. high.

How can I prevent the blight that affected last years' crop? I live in southern Alabama and have just transplanted several Better Boys, purchased from my local nursery.
Asked by: Bob
Contact the Agriculture agent from your local University/ extension or Co-op on this one. He/she will know your local plant diseases and to prevent them. I was separate to save my yellow tomatoes two years ago, and an extension agent from Texas A & M was so helpful!

This little guy arrived a few weeks ago looking rough - most of the soil had tumbled out of the pot, and a few leaves were caught in the plastic container, and the whole plant seemed wilty. I ordered three other tomato plants in the same shipment and they fared much better. I put the soil back in the container, pinched off the dead leaves, and watered all the plants. The other tomato plants are doing very well and have grown a little. This plant is no longer wilty, but it isn't growing like the others. Is there something I can do to help it along? (All four tomato plants are still in their pots on my table because I'm in WNY and I think it's still too cold to put them in ground...
Asked by: lulaylulay
Get it in the ground if there is no longer a chance of a freeze, and be sure your soil is ready - - a good fertilizer or compost or whatever is needed in your part of the country to replenish soil nutrients. If weather is "iffy," add a bit of good potting soil to the poor baby until it can be planted. Tomatoes are pretty hardy, so it should survive, if not exactly thrive, until it goes in the ground.

4.5 in. Better Boy Tomato is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bonnie Tomato Plant Wow, I followed the recommended planting depth, fertilizer, soil amendment and the results are amazing. Only 10 days after picking out a larger tomato plant with a few flowers emerging and I have tomatoes. I highly recommend that you purchase these well grown Bonnie plants. Always get excellent results after following their recommendations.
