Additional Information

NEW & Exclusive | Harvest Armloads of Tomatoes from Two Tomato Plants in this Self-Watering Tomato Planter!

  • Grow the tastiest vine-ripened tomatoes in our revolutionary planter
  • Clapboard-style planter is sized to fit 2 super-productive tomato plants
  • Includes Classic Planter and integrated 34" high support
  • Make it mobile! Add optional Casters, sold separately
  • We recommend compact determinate (bush) varieties that grow up to the height of the support
  • For taller tomato varieties add the Classic Tomato Support Extension, sold separately, which provides an additional 22" of support
  • We recommend filling the planter with three 20-quart bags of our premium Organic Self-Watering Potting Mix and 2 cups of our GSC Organic Tomato Fertilizer, sold separately

Get ready for a bonanza of delicious, juicy tomatoes all summer long! Breakthrough technology makes this self-watering planter the most effective way to grow tomatoes on your patio or deck. It holds a generous 60 qts. of potting mix — plenty of room for two tomato plants. Made from durable, low-maintenance polypropylene. We recommend using the included tie-backs to secure the planter to a post or railing.

Success starts in the roots. The perforated planter with sidewall ventilation and lightweight Grow Bag liner air-prune roots, ensuring a dense, vigorous root system that can take up more water and nutrients — the secret to super-productive plants.

Dual-Hydrate Watering System. Draws water from the reservoir into the soil two ways — an evaporative grid plus capillary strip — efficiently providing roots with water. And the large water reservoir provides consistent moisture and reduces watering chores.

Customizable support. The Sturdy Snap-Lock Rings and 34" integrated aluminum spines provide support wherever and whenever it's needed — and you can open, reattach and lock in the rings to gather up and support wayward branches.

Deborah, our lead Product Tester, says, "This planter is by far the best container for growing tomatoes that I've ever used."

      I should have paid more attention to previously posted comments. Assembling this planter ....the support clips....is an exercise in pure frustration. It goes back tomorrow

        The locking clips that hold support ring clips in place are poorly designed and almost impossible to install. This is noted in the instructions which say "some people may find the locking clips difficult to install". There is a note that we can call customer support to get new locking clips, available in the late spring. Gardeners Supply, if you are listening, don't sell these units without the new clips.

        Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Planter:

        I purchased the kit, so I got the planter, fertilizer, self-watering potting soil, and I got casters.

        Let me just say, the supports were just impossible to assemble. I fought with the locking clamps, and couldn't get them to connect. Also, I think some pieces were missing from my box, as I don't have the support connectors... or at least, not that I can find.

        So in the end, this is just a very large, self-watering tomato planter on casters. Which is fine, because that's mostly what I wanted - it's very hot and dry here (Los Angeles) and so I'm experimenting with ollas and self-watering pots to try and conserve water while still having a decent garden - but I'm using bamboo poles and such for supports, because the built-in supports are just impossible.

        Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Planter:

        I haven't found anything GREAT about it. The top soil drys out and when you try to fill the bottom it leaks all over the place so the plants tend to droop because they are not getting enough water from the bottom. Who ever designed this needs to have their head examined!

                Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Planter:

                I bought a similar tomato growing pot last year and Gardener's Supply did not do a good job of designing that planter and now they come out with this new one which is essentially the same. It may hold two plants but your tomatoes will be smaller. The rings that hold the plant up were constantly falling off. As the plants got bigger high winds would blow it over. I have also bought the large terra cotta planter which I liked better but after one year in the sun the plastic would easily crack and break. Gardener's supply did back me up and would send replacement parts but they weren't any better in the long run. I have shelled out a lot of money over the years and for what you get it's not worth the money. I have to grow my tomatoes in plants but decided (It's way too costly), after growing tomatoes all my life that I will no longer grow tomatoes what a let down. I will say that the large earlier tomato pots I can still use for Beans but not tomatoes.

                You know you're in trouble when right in the directions it tells you to call customer service if you are having trouble with the locking clips, as they are being redesigned and will be ready late spring. The locking clips are impossible to "lock" even after soaking them in hot water (yes they told me to do this). I couldn't lock both sides of them when assembled. They said the new locking clips would be ready in May--well I live in Las Vegas where I've already planted my tomatoes. Will they be tall in May--probably. Will I have to get stakes to hold up the plants--probably. When full assembled and dirt is in pot, the top rim piece doesn't fit properly either. It doesn't stay attached when pushed down onto the pot. One spot is always askew. I love the fact that it has a 5 gallon reservoir with a hydrating system--hope it works. It certainly will be tested in this climate. At least that's easy to fill. Great concept, bad engineering.
