I left it too late to sow tomato seeds this year so jumped at the chance to buy a small tomato plant from the supermarket at the beginning of June. I presumed it was a cordon variety but didn't want the hassle of staking it or indeed pinching it out. I decided to try growing it upside down as a trailing tomato. I knew that the stems would naturally grow up towards the light but the weight of the tomatoes would bring them back down.
I reused an old hanging basket that had a hole in the bottom, lined
it with a plastic bag that I had punctured with holes, pushed the tomato
plant up through the large hole and filled up with multi-purpose compost. Six weeks later I have a plant that is thriving and
covered in clusters of mini tomatoes. I will definitely use this method
of growing again.
