Topsy Turvy Planters?

    Has anyone used these?  If yes, what did you grow with them other than tomatoes?  Any feed back appreciated...
    I have space on the north side of my house, that should be far enough from the house to receive plenty of sun. I'm thinking of trying these for a season, before digging/creating an elevated bed.  Also if they don't grow as well as I'd like, I can change the location of the plants.  Will most likely grow herbs and peppers out of pots in another location on my property.
    Thanks-

  • I've never used one, but my gut feeling is that sure, it might work but it's gimmicky. If you have to hang it, you can easily DIY something similar, and it doesn't have to be upside down. It can easily be out of a milk jug or vinegar jug, which can still be recycled at the end of the day. I've seen Rock Taco do this with cherry tomatoes and peppers. And just hang it off the handle. Or buy any hanging pot. Why pay $10 or $20 for a consumer product with more plastic and packaging.

  • Yeah, that's kind of my sentiment.  Either commit to setting up a real garden, or use planter pots if I want to play around with the location of the plants for a season.
