Perfect for My Garden Post
Choose dwarf tomato plants
I am having big juicy tomato success on My Garden Post. These are the tomatoes that I am growing.
The best choice for My Garden Post are plants that are less than 2 feet tall.
Determinate tomato varieties grow to a limited hight and usually do not need staking and caging.
Choose dwarf or bush type tomato plants. Look for plants bred for containers.
Extended release or slow release fertilizer applied when potting the plant will be one less thing to worry about.
Two foot tall tomato plants
- Bush 506 Container Tomato plants are less than 24″ tall. The thick stemmed plants easily support the 8 ounce fruits. These container grown tomatoes are early producers. The Tasteful Garden advertises tomatoes in only 62 days. It was the first regular sized tomato to ripen in my zone 6 garden.

- New Big Dwarf Heirloom tomato is not really new. An heirloom first introduced in 1915, tastes like the old-fashioned beefsteak. The plant is only 2 feet tall but the fruits are full-sized 8-12 oz. Expect early tomatoes in about 60 days.
