Campari Tomatoes: I have these in 80cm high containers (1 in each) they sit on white limestone chip. Will snails get to these? How tall will these grow, and I have a large stake in each container. Will these grow the same as a normal tomatoe ie beefsteak etc.? Or should they be espaliered? I am watering each day, and they are growing at the rate of 1cm per day.

Yes snails can reach up the pots but would be unlikely to want to eat your tomato plants. They prefer beans and lettuce. To safe guard if you have lots of snails try sprinkling salt directly on the snails in the evening when they are out or lay snail bait in a little shallow dish next to the plants. Your Campari Tomatoes if fed well with Tomato food like Tui Tomato food will grow to a good height. A tall stake pushed right to the bottom of the pot will give good support and be sure to tie it to it as it grows.
