Tomatoes are by far the most popular edible vegetable or fruit grown in gardens- US plant nurseries and seed websites stock many more varieties of tomatoes than any other vegetable or fruit. The popularity of heirloom varieties has further fueled interest. Aimed at both food-lovers and gardeners, Tomato showcases the different varieties and shows how to grow them-in pots, hanging baskets, grow bags, under glass, and outdoors-and harvest tomatoes, as well as cooking and preserving them.

Gail Harland has been growing tomatoes in her garden for nearly twenty years. Experimenting every season, she's now grown over 60 international tomato varieties.
She started writing articles for the horticultural press in 1993 and was awarded The Royal Horticultural Society's Diploma in Horticulture in 1999.

Trevor Cole started working at the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa in 1967, initially on the adaptation of native flora to cultivation. He was appointed curator of the Dominion Arboretum in 1972, and retired in 1995. Author of three gardening books and many articles, he has received awards for his writing from the Garden Writers Association of America and the North American Rock Garden Society.
