My tomatoes aren't growing, they just stay little babies. I don't know what's going on!

Ok, don't fret! We'll figure this out together! First, what kind of tomatoes are you growing? (tiny cherry tomatoes, big beef steak dudes, etc) Second, are they staying tiny babies that turn red, or are the babies still green and unripe?

This is really great. Many people have trouble with growing tomatoes. My name is Marty Ware and I am an agricultural horticulturist.
I love growing Toms.
So I wanted to share some knowledge.
1. Plant your toms with sweet basil. These tow are companions and your Tomatoes will stay a lot healthier with Basil around.
2.Containers need to be deep and wide. Roots like to spread accross.
3. Plant your seedlings nice and deep. The hairs on the stem form roots.
4.Plant Parsley at the bottom of your Tomatoes to also help improve flavour.
5. In super small spaces grow Cherry tomatoes for larger crops.
6. Liquid fertilise once a week with fish immulsion and seaweed extract for lushious tasty fruits
7. For more info visit http://hubpages.com/hub/growing-tomatoes-in-pots

Happy Gardening
