1. Hi! Sorry...just saw this. Answers below

I grow all peppers and eggplants in containers because I find that the heated root zone makes yields skyrocket when compared with those grown on level typical gardens.

I grow about 200 varieties of tomatoes each year, mostly indeterminate, a very few determinate, and of course our big project to breed new Dwarf tomatoes - lots of those. For the indeterminates, I minimally prune, grow them vertically and tie them to 8 foot stakes - the containers are at the driveway edge, so the stake is driven into the lawn at the edge. this year I am going to grow them in my main dirt garden also - most tomatoes are going to be for pics for my upcoming book - I am featuring 25 varieties that are special to me, and one each will be in a large container and in my garden (so redundancy).

check my nctomatoman YouTube channel - many videos of my container efforts.....

have fun! Gardening is just the best! Keep asking questions...watch my blog at nctomatoman.com
