This is the elevated tomato garden that trains vines to grow downward, allowing tomatoes to ripen in the air (not in the ground) where they won't rot. The compact planter can fit in any space with ample sunlight, even balconies. Complementary plants like basil and parsley can be planted on top, which holds up to 80 lbs. of topsoil. A hollow base filled with sand (not included) or water keeps it stable and upright. The plastic bed, supported by PVC pipes, has openings for four tomato plants, with pop-out perforations for four additional openings. Minimal assembly. Black. 48" H x 25" sq. (19 lbs.)

Product works but had assembly glitch
By Long-time Gardener
from Apple River, Illinois
This is my first year to use. I have planted four tomato plants hanging and five herbs in the container on top. So far all is going very well as I experiment with plants. The only problem I had was with assembly--the center post did not fit into the opening in the base. I had to file some of the gooves in the base to get it to fit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Upside Down Tomato Garden
from Fort Collins, CO
Just got it so still open on the results of the tomatoes... However it's a perfect size for a patio garden, looks great too. One trick when putting the center post in place, directions say to place a piece of wood on top of the post and pound with hammer into place....that doesn't work...instead...put a piece of wood on top then LEAN INTO IT putting all your weight on it then it will pop into place.
This product is poorly designed
By Jo Jo

The product was easy to assemble. Unfortunately, it was very difficult to put the tomato plants into the upside down tomato garden. Of the four plants I did plant one died in a day or two because of the trauma of shoving the root through the small hole in the bottom of the planter. It seems to me that a plant that is potted is a poor choice for planting in this product. A hydoponicaly grown plant with just the roots should be able to fit through the hole. You should provide such plants.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
