Read my posts with the following stupid accent: Canada
I don't have much soil, so last summer I grew beefsteak, yellow, cherry and grape tomatos in enormous 36cm diametre black plastic pots. I used transplants (starts) and left just one in each pot once I knew which one was strongest. I planted the weaklings in a garden bed and got a few tomatos off them. But the ones in the pots grew and produced great. I had a sheltered sunny spot for them and they were easily four feet tall and bushy in no time.

I used a standard fertilizer on them, and I found once they took off I had to water them heavily almost every day. They demanded a lot of water.

I did prune them some too, especially after the tomatos got fair sized.
