Better Bush Hybird Tomatoes!

Post  JackieB999 on 4/10/2013, 10:40 am

Hi everyone... I know these plants are a hybird, and not my normal heirloom variety, but I am just so impressed with these plants. Look how strong the stems are. They're about as thick as my big toe! They're only about 1.5 ft high right now. I got them at HD from Bonnie Plants. Even tho I cant save seeds, I will definitely seek these plants again next year.

Is this variety among anyone else's favorites?




And an update on my 20 squares of container gardening. I grew most of these from seed.

I've never heard of that variety, but it looks really cool! I grew a dwarf variety last year that reminds me of what you're growing. It was an older hybrid (and therefore kind of hard to find now) called Red Robin. They only get to about 12 inches tall, but despite that, these two tiny bushes actually produced 2 pounds of tomatoes over the season, which is about the same as I got from my Brandywine vine!



Make sure to take lots of pictures! I love seeing tiny plants like that. They're so interesting.

Littlesapphire.....I grew Sophie's Choice tomatoes which gave me a half dozen normal-sized toms and they were good. The plant itself grew less that 1 1/2 ft tall.

I grew them in a pot.
This year I think I'll try Totem and Tiny Tim.
