Tomato Rootball. 4 November 2013 Tomato Rootball
Pictures depicting a typical tomato root ball. There is no tap root and a cluster of roots surround the plant at a depth of about six inches and a foot in diameter. One or two roots may extend out further, probably seeking moisture. This was a free growing Lemon Boy tomato plant supported by ropes tied to the trellis. The point being if growing in containers the pot need not be excessively large.I have noticed if transplanting outdoors and the soil is too cold another root ball will form just above the existing one. 5 September 2013 Lemon Boy Tomato
