Mini & Micro Tomato Update

I’ve been searching for the last couple of years for Mini, Micro, Compact, Dwarf Tomatoes up to 450mm high that can be grown on a sunny windowsill (inside or out), patio or balcony and in my case a Small Space Saver Greenhouse. My original listing can be found Here

I asked the good gardeners and allotmenteers for further suggestion on a number of Facebook groups.

A big thank you to all who contributed to extending the list, there are some nice-looking tomatoes there and I'm defiantly going to try them all over time. If you know of any other varieties that are mini, micro, compact and will fit into small pots, patio pots/ containers or hanging baskets then please let me know.

This Blog doesn't not really handle tables so the hyperlinks to the varieties are listed below

I think another list of just those that are good for hanging baskets may be in order. I have to say I've not had a great deal of luck growing in hanging baskets and tend to shy away from using them as they need so much attention to stop them dying.
