Book Description

"The book is filled with lots of practical tips for growing your own tomatoes at home.  Everything is covered from where is the best place to keep them, how much sunlight is required, which containers to use, which is the best type of soil etc. The book goes into great detail when it comes to actually planting and transporting them, something I always struggled with."
-Damian

"There were several tips I would not have thought of not having experience growing in containers before so this book was very helpful. I enjoyed the chapter on companion planting and the advice about diseases and pests. Very helpful. I hope she will write a few more container gardening books for other plants. "
-SandraDW

"It has to be one of the best books about Growing Tomatoes I have found anywhere. I love the chatty way she writes. No lectures, just solid information.  It is very well laid out and goes into just enough detail to be sure that the reader understands what the author is meaning to convey to you. There is no filler, no rubbish only some great information on this subject."
-K. Evans

"Ms. Danielson's advice for the best containers to use, and where to find info on the variety that's best for YOU were very helpful. She doesn't leave you hanging either. Information is given on how to transplant your tomatoes as they grow."
-Jo

5.0 out of 5 stars Tomatoes for me this summer! May 14, 2012
By Damian
Format:Kindle Edition
Nice book here. I'm a hydroponic gardener myself, I grow tomatoes using lights, so I was interested in creating a few soil raised brothers for a change. The book is filled with lots of practical tips for growing your own tomatoes at home.

Everything is covered from where is the best place to keep them, how much sunlight is required, which containers to use, which is the best type of soil etc. The book goes into great detail when it comes to actually planting and transporting them, something I always struggled with.

You can begin reading this book not knowing a thing about growing tomatoes and you'll be able to go away and plant your own thriving tomatoes straight away. I'm going to plant some tomatoes this summer and compare them to my hydroponic tomatoes as an experiment which should be interesting.

One advantage hydroponics has over soil based gardening is that there are little or no pests with hydroponics. Thankfully this book goes into detail also about how to deal with the inevitable soil pests that you're likely to get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tomato Container Gardening May 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For years I have planted tomato plants in different areas in my yard. Some years I would have tomatoes, and most years, the tomatoes would ripen just as we get our first frost, so the crop was always disappointing.

Last year however, I did my tomato plants in a container, which really turned out great. My tomatoes ripened earlier in the season, so I was able to enjoy fresh tomatoes throughout the summer.

I want to make sure that this year's containers did well again, so I picked up this book to get some additional tips. The author has a bunch of interesting techniques that I will definitely be incorporating.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide on Growing Tomatoes in a Container May 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's been a few years since I've done any gardening but I have been thinking about growing just a few vegetables to add to the table. Nothing tastes like home grown but I'm just not up to a big garden right now. I figured a few containers would do the trick and looked around for some advice. This book by Danielson seemed perfect and my family loves tomatoes, so why not?

As I read through the book, I kept saying, "Yes, I remember that" so I knew I was getting good advice. But the tips specific to growing tomatoes in a container were just what I needed to supplement my own gardening experience and to remind me. Advice on type of container is spot on. I had read previously about two containers she talked about. I probably would have tried one if I hadn't read her cautions. The cautions she gave on these have me going for the exact container she suggested.

There were several tips I would not have thought of not having experience growing in containers before so this book was very helpful. I enjoyed the chapter on companion planting and the advice about diseases and pests. Very helpful. I hope she will write a few more container gardening books for other plants.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Primer January 21, 2013
By Nyssa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book provides all of the information you need to successfully grow tomatoes in containers. It includes sections on how to choose the best location for your pots, how to choose containers, which tomato varieties work well and the different categories of plants, soil preparation, pruning, care during the growing season, common pests and ailments, and a very helpful section on companion plantings to help control many of those pests and that attract beneficial insects. In short, a complete guide that is well organized, well written, and clearly presented. There are references to where to find additional information online on tomato varieties, pests, and diseases which are helpful and would be overwhelming information to include in a beginner's guidebook.

I only found two pieces of information with which I disagreed, but both are more matters of personal preferences rather than critical disagreements. The author states that she prefers to use ready-mix Miracle Gro potting mix for her container tomatoes, which can get very expensive if you're preparing pots for more than one or two tomatoes. I find it more cost effective and not that much more trouble to make my own potting mix. For those interested in making their own, my formula is two parts potting soil to one part peat moss plus a handful or two each of vermiculite and perlite and a handful of slow-release vegetable or tomato fertilizer.

The other disagreement is another minor one. The author says at the end of the growing season to dump the used potting mix into your yard or discard rather than to dump it into your regular garden or compost pile. I abhor waste, so I always mix my used potting mix into my regular vegetable garden beds or flower beds and mix in well with the existing soil.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Better Than Home Grown Tomatoes May 15, 2012
By Kat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wish I had found this book last year. I have never seen the information of preparing your containers and getting your tomato plants prepared for planting. That explains my lackluster results last year. This book contains a wealth of information to help you produce the perfect tomato. Some of the information I was familiar with, but there was a lot of information that I did not know. Great book and highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars What an absolutely useless book! November 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A publisher looks for manuscripts that, when discussing topics already published, still present new material and/or perspective that makes this new book compelling. This "book" fails on that criterion.

It discusses using plastic containers, but that's pretty much one of those "duh" topics. Many other gardening books will tell you that plastic containers don't dry out as fast as clay pots, and their lighter weight makes them easier to move.

The author discusses using the right potting mix, but doesn't offer any recipes or advice based on experience of what worked best for her, beyond buying Miracle-Gro mix. She discusses nutrition, but doesn't offer any suggestions on how a feeding program might be different for potted tomatoes as opposed to planting in beds. Same with the brief mention of watering, staking, etc. There's no detailed information that will help you make better choices.

There's discussion about bugs and diseases, but many other tomato books do a better job. Again, this was just a brief overview. You can gather more information on all relevant topics by searching Extension and college agriculture websites.

Don't waste your time. This thing shouldn't even be offered as a book, Kindle or otherwise. I'm going to see about getting a refund.
