Topsy-Turvy Planter makes it easy to grow tomatoes and vegetables because it eliminates the need for a backyard garden plot, stakes or cages, weeding, soil prep, hole digging, cut worms and in-ground insects! Saves your back and knees too! Hang it from a hook on a deck or balcony and you'll work standing up. Water and fertilize through the built-in top funnel; trim... More and harvest at chest height! Also for cukes, peppers, flowers. Just add your soil and plants. FLOWERS thrive in TOPSY TURVY, too! And talk about an interesting way to grow them! Flowers grown in TOPSY will "curl" upward seeking the sun, creating gorgeous "upside down umbrella-like sprays" of flowers. Flowers grown this way look "interestingly different" (almost like a new variety of plant). Set of 3

So far, they're working as expected. Basically what you have here is a plastic bag with a foam retainer thing on the bottom to hold the plant in. Putting the plant in and getting soil/fertilizer in there properly is really a two-person job, though if you're very clever maybe you could do it alone. It's not hard, it just requires more than two hands to keep things from falling over.
I've been comparing the growth of my starts in the garden to the same starts in the topsy turvy planters. They've been in the ground/planters for over a month, and the garden planted starts are winning in terms of size, but we're not anywhere near harvest time, so it's a little early to judge.
Tip: READ THE INCLUDED PAMPHLET with a bunch of tips on how to use the thing. Read it before you plant. :)
UPDATE: June 28 2014. It's still early in the growing season, but so far the tomatoes in the topsy-turvys are doing OK, though not *quite* as well as those in the ground. I find that if I don't water these EVERY SINGLE DAY, I get instant wilt -- other reviewers point that out, and they're right. We have fruit on all the plants, and are looking forward to some of it maybe turning red soon. Oh yeah, and the one with two starts crammed into it is not doing as well as the others. So I'd stick with one plant per planter, as recommended.
