Tomato grow bags make the perfect, easy growing medium for greenhouse tomatoes and outdoor tomatoes. You can either plant the tomatoes directly into the growing bag, or you can try using a growing ring to increase the amount of compost the roots sit in. This can increase the amount of water and nutrients available to each tomato plant, and therefore increase your tomato crop.
How to support tomatoes growing in grow bags
Use a support like bamboo canes to support tomatoes growing in grow bags, and then tie the plant to the cane using twine. If using culture rings you will increase the depth of compost to push the cane into. Use one cane per plant, ideally pushing it through the bag and into the soil beneath. If you’re laying your grow bags over a hard surface such as concrete, you can buy a support frame to hold the bamboo canes in place.
