Last year was our first using
Last year was our first using one of these planters - but it was also our first year having agarden in our new home. We placed it on the wrong side of the house (too much direct heat in 100+ degree weater), but after switching it over it did amazing. We did have to water mroe frequently, but this just meant more time examining for pests. We did not have nearly as many pest issues with the topsy turvy plant as we did out 5-Gallon bucket tomato plants. I would recommend using these for smaller tomatoes - cherry, plum, or something like Early Girls. The Topsy Turvy broken when we tried to pull the dying plant out, so don't expect them to last more than one season - if memory serves, the included informational packet noted that it should last more than one season. =D
