celebrity tomato plants

Asked May 30, 2013, 10:52 AM EDT

Is it ok to pick the first blossoms off the tomato plant? After planting them in a container? And can I transplant the tomato plants in a bigger container, they are about 18' high now with blossoms.

You can pick the blooms off if you want to get the plants larger before they begin to bear fruit. I would say the minimum size for a container for tomatoes would be a five gallon pot. While they will grow in a smaller container, they dry out so quickly in the heat of our summers.
