I have 3 tomatoes in a pot and I wanted to know will they be ok without transplanting and if not how would I transplant them without harming the tomatoe plant
You will be better off by snipping off the two weakest plants. A 5 gallon container is the minimum size container for 1 tomato plant. The roots of those plants are tangled and intertwined and separating them will lead to root damage, stunting and possible death, but if you want to try get the garden hose and wash away all of the soil from the roots and very gently try to separate them. Do not let the roots dry, work with them underwater.
