I'm not sure if this is nationwide or just select Costco stores. I bought 4 over a foot tall tomato and pepper plants for $12.99. So a little over $4 a plant. I think they are 3quart pots because the flat of 4 says 12 quart.
They look pretty healthy and I can trim back to clone some of the multi stems and large branches to root multiple plants from one as well. If you trim back large stems or large branches you can start a new garden plant two ways. Either just stick them in the dirt and water well or use root powder . I was at the Danvers, MA store.

I was just there this morning. Saw a long row of tomato plants. No price. No one knew the price. Looked everywhere and asked everyone. The nursery guys had already left.

I think that is a good article in general. If I was buying earlier in the season, I would love getting smaller plants, burying and building strong roots from the go. But , now I'm past mid May and don't have a long growing season. Sure I could get a six pack of a few inch tall plants for less, but I would rather at this point get stronger plants. I usually start my own seeds in a room with grow lights but life got in the way.

I didn't want to go to far into telling people the hows to plant because I am by far not an expert . So this my experience. Bury your stem some and trim up a bit. The stem will create new strong roots. Determine if you are getting determinate (ripen at once more bush type) or indeterminate ( vine type that ripen through the season) and determine what is best . You also have early late, etc etc types. I generally grow indeterminate and vine to a 6ft pole. Prune suckers through the season for indeterminate tomatoes. Determinate I think you let Bush in a cage, I don't usually grow these type. Some people allow multi stem from the first two nodes as suckers.

I've been wanting to grow tomatoes for a long time. I have no idea what I'm doing and live in South FL. I'll check my local Costco later.

I bought Moskvitch. They are a heirloom medium size tomato it looks like. Indeterminate so they grow tall and viny. I'm not sure if there are different varieties. The peppers were Hungarian wax, bell pepper, and it looked like some chili peppers but none of the chili's looked good at my store.

I don't think indoors works well, but I've never tried it. I use big tubs for mine and drill holes in the bottom. A lot of people use the Home Depot buckets. You just need a large enough container with drainage and a cage or pole.

Tomatoes grow well indoors if you have the right conditions:
