Wonder if anyone can give me some advice. I have a small garden with a section of fencing (about 1.5m high and 2m wide) inset in a dividing wall. It is in full sun and there’s a wide ledge at the bottom. In the past I’ve grown herbs in pots along the ledge but would now like to grow some veg up the fence. Is there a variety of tomato that is relatively low growing which would train out sideways, almost like an espalier fruit tree? I can’t actually grow the fruit tree, as it would need to be in a container on the ledge!

Any suggestions for varieties of tomato or other crop most welcome!



Most indeterminate tomatoes tend to grow horizontally, unless tied up.
