Yes they can if you are using upside-down tomato planter! It can save you a lot of space and add a unique view to your home garden. You may want to hook it on your mansard or balcony and I am sure the friends or family will be surprised when they see the tomato that grows upside-down. Also there are some other great benefits: you don’t have to take so great care about them as you do in normal garden: there will be no weeds and you’ll not find your tomatoes spoiled on the ground. Because they grow upside-down all nutrients go “faster” from the roots into the plant and the tomatoes are ready for harvest 4 weeks earlier than tomatoes planted in traditional way.
The idea is so great that this product was called The America’s Best Invention by TIME magazine in 2005!
All you have to do is to have your tomato plant ready for that. You can’t just add home garden seeds into the bucket. They have to have their root system formed. Water them as you normally do and that’s all!
