Hanging vegetable plants..........

This spring I would like to sink a 4x4 pole in the ground with two plant hangers, one opp the other. I want to put a hanging cherry tomato plant on one side, and a hanging strawberry plant on the other. Is this ok growing two diffrant plants on the same pole?

I think you're asking if the post will keel over? Depends on how well balanced it is, how far the hangers extend, how heavy the loads, how deep the post.

The proximity of the plants won't be a problem.

What I was asking was, is it alright to hang a tomato and a strawberry plant that close together.

They both love sun. They'll look cute paired up. The tomato wants more water though.

Hm. I once had a house-mate who could tell you which vegetable plants harmonize, like, spiritually with each other...

All else being equal, mixed plantings do a bit better than monocultures. The pests have to travel farther, their predators have better cover.

Thanks, as soon as my plants come in and I set the post, I'll send a pic.
