This product works as advertised, my tomatoes are doing very well. However, it is VERY heavy when filled with dirt and watered. You need a sturdy hook and place to hang it. I was having problems with it drying out quickly (granted, I live in New Mexico, where it is quite dry) even though I had added water absorbing crystals to the soil. I ended up removing the top 6 inches of soil and placing a plastic milk jug in the top. I punched some holes in the bottom of the jug and I fill this with water nearly every day. The water then slowly seeps in to the soil instead of running out the bottom, dripping is reduced and the plant gets the water it needs. I would give it five stars if some system were in place to keep it from dripping so I could use it indoors and if it were a little easier to plant.

To be fair, we have 2 turvy's and 2 potted.
I must confess the turvy's are in far better shape than the potted plants.
Our biggest fuss is that the position makes it awkward when keeping in full sun. We spent weeks turning the plant every other day. It's not that big of a deal though.

Requires lots of water. You must water every other day without fail if in dry, hot, humid areas.

WARNING:
DO NOT BUY FROM THE WEB ADDRESS topsyturvy.com/hangingtomato.com/ or any other redirects this company may send you to.
This company is deceptive. You've seen the commercial. Buy one get one free? Just pay extra shipping? They charge 31.00 for shipping, and it all comes in one box. It totals $71.78
If you return it, you are refunded on $39.99.
They do not refund the whole amount.

Instead of $71.78, which I am still fighting the company about through the BBB, I bought 2 on Amazon.com

I paid about $30.00, that includes shipping.
BUY AMAZON, NOT DIRECTLY FROM THE COMPANY.

I have used the Topsy Turvy Tomatoe Planter for 3 seasons now, and will never, ever plant my tomatoes in the ground again. This product is sturdy, simple to use, and produces beautiful fruit. Because the plants grow toward the sun and never touch the ground, the slugs and other critters cannot ruin or run off with your produce. As I have already stated, I have used the same bags for 3 seasons now, and have not had any problems at all. I highly recommend this product.

****Later Posting****
I used these for 4 seasons, and that was about the end the first pair...they do wear out eventually, and they were well worth the price I paid for them. So, I guess I need to replace them! Four summers' worth was pretty good!

Expensive, heavy, and over board! Just use a market bag you can obtain at any grocery store or Trader Joes for .99 cents. The handles are sturdier and the bag expands. Slit bottom center with an X, slip seedling in, add soil mixed with vermiculite and peat moss and hang on a sturdy pole. If your soil mix has vermiculite and peat in it you will water less often. I would use a gallon jug with top cut off to water slowly on really hot days. The whole set up with soil, plant, and bag cost me $2.50 each.

I was very intrigued by the Topsy Turvy when I saw the infomercial and heard the great reviews. I ordered 2 TT's, got the soil, fertilizer, and tomato plants and followed the directions. My plants wilted and died after 3 days. After reading some helpful hints online, I re-planted and now they are doing great. Tips that helped: First, pick a seedling that's only 6" tall or shorter, making sure the roots are white. (The one I originally got from Home Depot was about 12" high and too gangly.) Next, carefully feed the plant into the bag and the leaves out the bottom hole. (The first time I planted, I forced the big root ball thru the hole from the outside. I think it damaged roots.) Then, bury 3/4 of the plant in soil with only the top leaves out the bottom hole. Add extra soil and fertilizer. Cut a milk gallon container in half, poke several holes in the bottom and place it in the bag. Pour water in and it will slowly drip/drain to water. I water 2-3/day. Wrap the outside with foil if you live in a hot place (I live in Hawaii) to deflect some of the sun's direct light. Now it's been 3 weeks and the plants look full and green. I hope to have lots of tomatoes this summer for all my effort and experimenting...good luck!
P.S.-The shepherd's pole I got at Home Depot could not support the weight. It broke, so we ended up having to hang it from the eaves.
P.S.S.- With more detailed directions and tips, this could have received a 5 star. I had to research on my own.

I have read most of the reviews before I bought the Tosy Turvy Planter. I have harvested tomatoes successfuly. I changed the planting procedure like this. To make it 'not so heavy' I layered the planter with potting soil, styrofoam peanuts and spaghnum moss. Each layer was about 3 inches in depth. This took away the weight problem. I hung them(3) from outside fence posts surrounded by sun. This took away the rot problem. It is a good product if you customize the procedure to fit the environment. Dave Kunkler, Rushville, Ohio.

about a month ago, i built a sturdy wooden frame, and hung seven topsy-turveys, planted
with 'better boy' tomatoes, in my backyard garden. the area gets about 6 hours of good
florida winter sunshine per day.
so far, i'm very pleased with the results. the plants have grown well, have good and
healthy looking foliage, and lots of blooms. at this point...a high percentage of the blooms
have set as fruit, the biggest of which is now about 1" in diameter.
i read many of the reviews, took note of the problems that were experienced, and worked
around them. yes, a filled planter is heavy--the solution, build a sturdy support, it'll last
you for years. yes, you can break a stem when loading the plant--the solution, follow the
instructions, and you'll avoid that problem. to be honest...filling the planters is easy, if
you have someone help...support and protect the stem as you're filling the dirt.
there was one complaint about tomato horn worms--the solution, google those nasty critters,
and learn about them. a moth lays eggs on your leaves, and the hatched-out worms do the eating
on your plants. BELIEVE ME... the offending moths can't tell the difference between plants that
are in topsy-turveys, as opposed to those in the ground. they're just not that smart!!!
yes--you do need to water frequently. tomatoes need a steady supply of water... if you
visit 'the land' at disney world, and take the backstage tour of the hydroponic gardens, you'll
see that most plants receive constant watering. this is the 'world capital' of gardening, with
plants, and yields enough to make any gardener jealous. they had one tomato plant, that produced
over 30,000 tomatoes!!! in this case...
