Growing tomatoes

I didn't think it was possible to grow tomatoes in our tropical heat until I saw these growing in someone's backyard. These were attacked by pests but somehow they were still laden with tomatoes.
I have tried growing tomatoes in my patio several times but they had never given me any fruits. Some had grown well enough to produce flowers only to die a sudden death. Others succumbed to white flies and aphid infestations. My parents, on the other hand, had grown cherry tomatoes successfully.
Maybe if I grow mine in large pots and give them enough fertilisers, they will do well. I am inspired to try again.


  1. i love growing tomatoes but i have the same prob with white flies n aphids too.

  2. I recently successfully grew full size tomatoes in a pot in my hdb balcony. Managed to get 2 tomatoes before root rot set in. I have moved on to rockmelons now.

  3. I am trying to grow them too. My husband keeps telling me that tomatoes won't grow well in our climate. I, on the other hand, is a hoper. I hope for a miracle ;-)
