Comments about Product: The tomato I put in this planter is not growing at all. I planted several in pots and in the gound at the same time and they are flourishing. I used then same soil with all of them. The basil is growing but not the tomato.
Need to be able to buy replaceable bags.
Comments about Product: When they first came out, I bought two. Done good. Had average tomatoes, good taste. Just wish, was able to buy replaceable bags. Bought two more, now, have the stands, no bags. In due time they start going bad due the weather. Wish they start selling the bags for these like the others.
Best Tomato Holder Ever
Comments about Product: My soil has a huge amount of clay and even with fertilizer and compost, didn't grow my tomatoes and peppers well.
They are growing like gangbusters now, and if I forget to water them for one day, the drip method takes care of that for me (except on very hot days).
Also, I have less of a bug problem now that the plants are off the ground.
Perfect for All Gardeners
Comments about Product: These tomato planters and stand are wonderful for growing fresh and ripe tomatoes. I have in previous years purchased many different tomato planters but none of them compare in yield or quality to this planter. I am enjoying all the delicious tomatoes from my garden!

Comments about Product: I don't have time for a full-size garden this year but I really wanted tomatoes and herbs. This seems like the perfect solution!
Haven't decided yet
Comments about Product: Planted three tomato plants. Plants are huge, lush and very healthy looking but hardly any blooms. If they end up producing tomatoes like they should, I will be very happy with my purchase. There is no weeding or bending over and this is the first time I have ever had tomatoes that have looked this healthy. I just hope I see more blooms before long.

Just minimally satisfied
Comments about Product: I thought this would be an answer to the problem I have with deer eating my tomatoes. I set the tomato stand up on my patio. The top cover cracked and broke in the first few days I used it. My tomatoes definintely do not look like the ones in the picture! They are growing up instead of down (I believe that is their natural growing pattern.) I started out excited about this product and ended up rather disappointed.

Heads up, Tomatoes down.
Comments about Product: Growing three different kinds of tomato plants. Some do better than others.
Comments about Product: While this is a great idea, the stake is terribly flimsy and is in three pieces. Unless you had it so deep into the ground that the plants would hit the ground, it would not hold the weight of the planters. I threw it out and bought another stake that was one piece and more sturdy.

Comments about Product: The poles need to be taller for tomatoes, product did not come with needed hardware to hang. Had to add my own "S" hook. Attractive design.
Plants hang lower than expected
Comments about Product: Bought a topsy turvy last year from another store, but this is better.

So easy even my husband could do it!
Comments about Product: We love to grow vegetables and have not been able to in recent years for a variety of reasons. So when we saw the tomato tree we were thrilled. It gave us incentive to atleast grow tomatoes. We look forward to eating fresh tomatoes in the summer. The bag keeps the squirrels and birds away. I think the plants like it too. I don't know what is not great about it yet...if there will be something negative but so far so good.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
