Tomatoes – Indoor Growing in the Winter

Q: I am growing tomatoes in my garden. Is there any way that I could trim the plant back and pot it for indoor growing through the winter?

A: The tomato won’t bear fruit unless you give it VERY bright light. A normal-sized plant would like around 400 watts of fluorescent light, 16 hours per day, in a room kept above 70 degrees. If this seems daunting, I have had success growing indoor tomatoes with an AeroGarden (www.aerogrow.com) .
