topsy Turvey Tomato Planter
I am sure many of you have seen the advertisements for the upside down 'hanging basket' style tomato planters. Well, Gena -knowing how much her uncle and grandfather love gardening- thought this was would a great Christmas present for both of them. Please remember these are seasoned farmers that have been gardening for well over 60 years. Both were extremely excited to receive these thinking they could walk outside on their patio and pick tomatoes for dinner....WRONG. First they went and bought a mid-size plant to use in the planter...after planting it was treating with tender loving care for weeks...the results----both men's plants shriveled up and died within a month. Thinking they had possibly made a mistake when planting they emptied the planters and tried a second time and guess what? Dead Plants within a month. I personally know instructions were followed to a tee and these plants were looked after like new-born babies but the results were horrible. Our family loves gardening in all forms but everyone PLEASE be aware of this product because it basically does not work. Do not waste your money!!!
