    When sowing tomato seeds you will usually get several sprouts in one pot. Once they reach a certain size with a couple of sets of leaves, just pop the ball of soil out of the pot and crumble it until you can separate the plants and pot them on into individual pots.
    When separating tomato plants from a ball of soil, gently crumble away the soil (sometimes a chopstick or other dull implement can be useful in this exercise). Then, handling the plants by the top leaves and stem, gently try to pull them apart from each other. Try not to touch the roots. I don't think submerging them in water would be necessary and make sure you don't over water when you first replant them. Good luck!

    Almost any vegetable can be adapted to growing in a pot. Vegetables that take up little space, such as carrots, radishes and lettuce, or crops that bear fruits over a long period of time, such as tomatoes and peppers, are perfect for container vegetable gardens. I have found that herbs also make excellent container gardens.
    What you can grow in a container vegetable garden is limited only by the size of the container and your imagination. You can also find information on our website containergardeningguru.com.
