Tomatoes can be grown in pots and containers in the greenhouse or tunnel. Prepare the soil by digging in compost or well rotted manure adding a granular fertiliser 2 weeks before planting.
Grow bags are great for tomatoes.
Make sure the plants are planted in full sun.
 
Sow March - April planting on either a warm windowsill or in a heated propagator the temperature for germination needs to be between 21 - 27 degrees.
Make sure the seedlings have plenty of light and when they get their first true leaves transplant to a larger pot to grow on. Transplant when the plants are around 15cm tall if they are to be planted outside ensure they have been hardened off and all chance of frost has passed. Water well before transplanting tie the main stem to a cane for support. 
 
It's important to water regularly and feed with tomato feed fortnightly when the flowers appear.
