Additional Information

NEW & Exclusive |

  • 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 would not buy this again

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

I am a long time Gardener's Supply Customer and have always been very happy with your products. Sadly I cannot say the same for this Planter. I own 4 of these ( 2 were presents) and 2 I bought myself because they looked so excellent until I used them. I have spent every day putting the wire supports back on. They fall off if you barely touch them and they fall off even if you don't. They pop right out of the holes. It is happening more often now as the tomatoes get taller and rely on the wires for support. For the price they lack quality.. This will not stop me from being a GSC customer but I am very disappointed.

    It was a little tricky to put the wires on but the rest of the assembly was pretty easy. The self watering part is really good with the wicking bag and my tomato plants are thriving so far. I also ordered the wheels which makes positioning it on the patio really easy.

      We added the casters for easy moving. Love the cage and irrigation system. Cucumbers and peppers in one pot, tomatoes and peppers in second. Perfect!

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

      These look very nice and hold a large amount of soil. I just planted my tomatoes in them (2 in each container that I bought) so I don't know yet how well they will do. The water reservoir is large and should help me with those weekends when I am away in Summer (which is what usually killed my tomatoes from being too dry). The containers were mostly assembled so I only had to put the soil bag and water wick in them to get going. The plant support system was difficult to assemble, but the online video was helpful to get that done.

              I was intrigued by the concept as we wanted to grow tomatoes on our deck. Bottom line - great idea and probably one of the poorest designed products I ever purchased. I struggled mightily with the wire support assembly, finally giving up after getting 3 of the 5 supports installed. We better get the world's best tomatoes or ...

                Rivals the Swedish Furniture Store "Divorce Maker"

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

                It looks good and will likely be fine for our tomatoes due to its nice deep planting area. This review is solely based on putting it together. Spoiler alert: IT WAS AWFUL.

                This item is the gardening equivalent of the Swedish furniture store "divorce maker" (look it up). The instructions come on 1 piece of paper with two sides. Simple enough. Then you start constructing. The pieces don't quite fit how one would intuitively think they would. The inside liner needs to both go under the flimsy plastic edge/ridge, but it can't do that all the way around, which leaves gaps and also isn't long enough to fit underneath. You then need to put dirt in it up to 1/2 way, which then pulls the liner out of the edge in the previous instructions. God forbid you didn't start putting this together in the exact place you want it because there are no handles to cart it anywhere, meaning you have to deadlift a bin with 2 bags of soil - and not by the most convenient place at the top, which pops out if you look at it funny. The support poles pop out if you provide any sort of leverage to put on the clips. The clips are so snug that we needed to use makeshift tools like knives and garden trowels to get them to snap over the support for the wires (we broke at least one said clip due to this). Once you get all the way to the end, there is an acknowledgement that the design sucks and Gardener's is working on it with an "Oh, by the way," if you can't get the clips on, we designed better ones and you can request those. When we were done, we both had hand cramps and pinched fingers.

                Also, the wheels come separately. We didn't think we'd need them because this is going in 1 place until it falls apart. We thought we could set it up in a convenient spot then move it. Boy, were we wrong!

                Pros: Water reservoir, deep for tomatoes; nice brown color
                Cons: You will hate yourself or your spouse for purchasing this; no handles; the rim piece is flimsy; liner flops in
