Additional Information

Exclusive | Grow Your Own Tomatoes! Our Self-Watering Tomato Growing Kit Includes Organic Potting Mix and Fertilizer

  • Innovative, low-maintenance planter guarantees a maximum harvest in minimal space!
  • Complete organic kit — just add a tomato plant!
  • Kit includes Honeycomb Planter, 33" high support, one 20-qt. bag of Organic Self-Watering Potting Mix and 1 lb. of GSC Organic Tomato Fertilizer
  • Make it mobile! Add optional Casters, sold separately
  • Sized for 1 tomato plant; we recommend a compact determinate (bush) variety that grows up to the height of the support

New! Last year several customers reported such a bounty of tomatoes that the plant's weight grew too heavy for the support. Our redesigned support is extra-sturdy for this year's tomato bonanza!

Nothing tastes better than tomatoes harvested fresh from the vine! Now you can look forward to a season’s worth of bounty with our revolutionary planter. Advanced technology makes this small-space system a convenient and foolproof way to grow a super-productive tomato plant right on your deck or patio. Also great for peppers and eggplant. We recommend using the included tie-back to secure the planter to a post or railing.

Success starts in the roots. The perforated planter with Honeycomb 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 a super-productive plant.

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.

Customizable support. The heavy-duty support is integrated into the planter, to 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.

Not a good product

By RL Willie

from Just north of NYC

Verified Reviewer

Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Honeycomb Tomato Garden:

I'm sure that I have the older model but it is not a good product. The metal rings can not stand any weight and come off easily. I had to use other supports. It looks good but will be gone from my deck soon.

from chicago, il

Pros

  • optional add-on accessories designed for planter
  • quick to get started
  • thoughtful design
  • unique, modern look

Cons

  • instructions are confusing

Best Uses

  • all-in-one kit
  • anti-critter
  • mesh bag
  • water reservoir

Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Honeycomb Tomato Garden:

Before pulling the trigger on this planter, I thoroughly researched and researched and shopped around as this is my first time growing anything edible. I was very interested in the mesh bag aspect because all tomato websites rave about how its great for the roots and aeration of the soil (look it up). Looking into buying just a mesh bag, I thought of the potential problems with squirrels and rats climbing up and getting to my tomatoes before I had a chance to. This planter solves the problem by encasing a mesh bag in a raised plastic container (hopefully critters cant get in) that also has a water reservoir. I did not have a problem with the wire support rings like other reviewers have had and I think its a unique and visually appealing solution to an all-in-one product. Wheels were not necessary for me so thanks for the option of not purchasing them to lower the overall price. It is extremely evident that this company hired industrial designers to put thoughtful planning into this planter and it's great that soil and fertilizer came with the kit. I hope it paid off for the company. However, what fell flat with the experience is the instructions. It seems as if someone slapped it together quickly on Word as it is confusing- maybe that's why people had problems with the wire support. This is made more obvious by contrast of the incredible design of the planter. I will ABSOLUTELY purchase organic soil and fertilizer from gardeners supply next year and keep on the lookout for any other unique products.

I would give it 3 1/2 if I could?!

Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Honeycomb Tomato Garden:

I read the reviews before I bought it. I could tell that the support things were not going to work because of all the poor reviews. When the product arrived, it did seem very complicated and flimsy (the supports only). I proceeded to plant my tomato in the planter without using the clips, just the support pole. I then just tied up the plant as it grew. It was a pain, but I liked the fact I could roll around my tomato plant as I saw fit. I was successful with my tomato plant, although it did grow smaller tomato's, which I am not sure if it's because of the tomato I grew (Margold), or if it was from the planter itself. Although I did like it for my use, I probably wouldn't recommend to others, until improvements are made.

Not enough support/supports don't work

By Lucy

from Emmaus, PA

Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Honeycomb Tomato Garden:

Planting and setting up the planter were easy but once my early girls started growing, the supports wouldn't stay together and the whole thing has not worked. This is my second year and this year was actually worse than last year, the first year I had it. I love my raised bed but this planter did not work for me and I won't plant a tomato plant again next year.

These will go to our local freecycle...not working for me

By Sephie'smomma

from SE Pennsylvania

Verified Reviewer

Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Honeycomb Tomato Garden:

Not sure why the other 32 reviews aren't being shown....but I'll add mine to the pile. These looked great in the catalog, but they haven't worked. Not too hard to assemble at the beginning if you follow the directions, but the clamps on the upright are almost impossible to get on--even with the video--without breaking them. I live in SE PA, not in AZ or somewhere else with a really dry climate--but I still had a lot of trouble keeping the pots hydrated. I'm not sure that the webbing wick really offsets the amount of aeration provided by the ventilated sides of the container.

Support lacking

By Smartcatz

from Westland, MI

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • The honeycomb pot grows a good tomato plant.

Cons

  • The support doesn't support a large tomato plant

Best Uses

    Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Honeycomb Tomato Garden:

    I like the actual pot, but the support that comes with it, doesn't support the tomato plant when the plant gets larger. I had to put a stake in the ground and attach the support to it, so it wouldn't lean forward too much.

    Good except for it's main function

    By Winemaker

    from Locust Grove Virginia

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Honeycomb Tomato Garden:

    I like everything about this planter except the main thing I purchased it for - self watering. Tomato grows very well and is producing but the open design apparently causes it to dry very quickly so I find that I have to refill at least once per day or the plant starts wilting. I set up a watering system on a timer for all my deck containers with small hoses going into the reservoirs and for this one I added a drip emitter on top as well. After 4 days this is the only one with a dead plant in spite of my efforts. Will try the one with solid sides.

    clips are way too difficult to use. They went in garbage and I'm going to use stakes and twine. Waste

        Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Honeycomb Tomato Garden:

        Do not buy this product! It is the most frustrating gardening product I have ever purchased . The planter is fine but the support rings are a joke. The black support rings do not give much support . They constantly are sliding down and my plant is not fully grown. I have to go out there daily and reposition everything . I am awaiting the replacement snaps. The instructions were not clearly written. Don't put yourself through this frustration . There are much better products on the market .
