Cities are ideal places for growing tomatoes. Tomatoes require relatively little space, can be grown in soil beds or containers and thrive when attached to walls and structures. They can grow down the way (tumbling toms), as pot plants, small bushes or as large vines stretching 4-6 metres.
Tomatoes are an excellent crop for city growing, especially when grouping various heirloom varieties for texture and colour and combining them with varieties of beans and cucumber in the garden. With even a small garden a sufficient crop can be achieved to meet household needs over several months.
