This year I'm growing 'Tumbling Tom' cherry tomatoes, strawberries and
Aji limon chillies all of which I'm told are good to grow in hanging
baskets. What I want to know is could I mix these plants? i.e could I
grow the chillies and the tomatoes in the same basket?
I'd probably keep the strawberries seperate but I thought it may be nice
to mix the Tumbling Tom (yellow & red) and the yellow chillies.
Any comments or advice please?
PS - I live in North West England
Sure. The usual caveats about competition apply though, if multiple plants
of either (or any) species are competing for nutrients, sun or water then
all will have less than maximum vigour. So it depends on the size of the
basket. Make sure it hangs in a warm sunny spot sheltered from wind and
check every day that it isn't too dry.
