Question about Galvanized Stock Tanks

Posted by lnewport TX (My Page) on

I'm thinking about buying a 2FT tall, 2FT wide, 6FT Long Galvanized Stock Tank. I want to grow tomatoes in them but not patio sized plants

If I want to use Stock Tanks would it probably be better if the bottoms were removed for the tomatoes root system?

Thank You

The tomatoes you are thinking of would definitely grow beyond two feet and into your soil if the bottom of the tank was removed and you were then growing in a raised bed. Al
