it had been doing great when i first planted it. then we had a stretch of really hot days killed off one branch. it hasn't grown at all since and now another is wilting/browning. is there anyway i can save it? i've been watering daily during the hotter days, every other day otherwise. TIA
A lot of watering may help, but this is what usually
This usually happens with gimmick plants and growing
methods. I know from personal experience.
Next year, stick with a local nursery or a
catalog such as Burpee or Park, and grow right-side-up. If
you're limited to containers, consider cherry tomatoes. Good luck.
I grew TopsyTurvy tomatoes for several years just for their value to start conversations, but don't bother anymore since yields were never satisfactory.
For tomatoes you can grow in a medium-sized container, you might want to investigate the products of the ongoing dwarf tomato project. Some varieties are already in commercial release at Heritage Tomato Seeds, Victory Seeds, Tomato Growers Supply, Gleckler Seedmen and I think maybe Tomatoville. I'm growing Tasmanian Chocolate this year, and just spotted the first green fruits.
