Growing tomatoes has never been easier. Our exclusive Tomato Success Kits have helped thousands of gardeners grow big crops of healthier, tastier tomatoes.

Specially formulated for self-watering containers, it offers superior wicking action to ensure plants get the water they need to thrive.

      Celebrity tomato plants grew above cage so needed to stake by July-August. May try broccoli early on. Switch to tomatoes mid-April.

          Comments about : Tomato Success Kit:

          I was skeptical about the "Success" label as I have tried many times to grow tomatoes on the patio in containers without Success! This system is remarkable! I planted two plants and have picked approximately 2 dozen tomatoes and the season is not half over. Tomatoes are the proper size and shape for the type I planted. I ordered a second planter to be ready for next year! Would recommend this in heartbeat!

            This allows me to grow tomatoes. Deer regularly visit my backyard and I don't get a lot of sun there so growing tomatoes would be impractical and likely unsuccessful. Now I grow tomatoes on my deck, no deer and plenty of sun. Adding a faucet on my deck made this work even better.

            This is my 4th kit got it for my Mother-in Law, she LOVES it. My 3 kits with 6 patio plants set a record 2 years ago 168 tomatoes!!!! Tried a major brand potting soil and fertilizer last year it was a FLOP, got less than half the tomatoes and all small. Went back to Gardner's soil mix kits this year and now have well over 125 large tomatoes on 6 plants since Memorial day planting, just getting red now. Bought 4 more soil kits for next year with my Gardener's discount coupon. Thank you Gardener's Supply you have me forever, your kit ad tells the truth! Keep up the good work. John B.

                Absolutely thrilled

                Comments about : Tomato Success Kit:

                I am really happy with this purchase. I am a novice gardener and yet still I am getting an insane amount of blooms and fruits.

                I currently have a Celebrity and Red Pride (Determinate) sharing the planter. I started them from seed indoors then transplanted to the Success Kit at the end of May here in Colorado.

                Summer has been hot here so I've been providing shade for my tomatoes during the 90○+ days in the form of a white pillow case clipped to the top of the cage. My planter is also not really anywhere near flowers so I've been aiding pollination by giving the plant a good shake every day by shaking the cage.

                I want to address one of the negative reviews I read in here. The planter received a one-star rating because the user's plants did not thrive in unfriendly tomato-growing conditions.

                I'd encourage any new gardeners to research growing the plants you desire before planting them. The planter provides all the necessary components to grow amazing tomatoes, but it's still up to the gardener to make sure they're positioning the planter in the right spot and planting their plants at the appropriate time of year for their particular crop and climate. I'd encourage you if you made a mistake in one of these areas to not give up and try it again in the right conditions so you can see amazing results.

                It might be helpful if GSC provided a link to a good reference for growing tomatoes with their kit instructions. I do think sometimes the term "kit" implies the consumer is going to be supplied with specific instructions on growing tomatoes, as well.

                All of that aside, love this planter. It's super convenient and the soil is exactly what hungry tomato plants need. I am definitely considering purchasing a second and possibly third kit to use specifically to grow herbs and maybe some cool season crops likes spinach or kale. I wonder how carrots would do in this? My head is definitely churning with ideas!

                My tomatoes were struggling. The ones I didn't move to a Success Kit still are. I moved four plants into two Success Kits, and the results have been unbelievable. These tomatoes were planted from seed, and they're already towering over the unmoved ones that were planted from seedlings. My neighbor, who introduced me to these, has tomatoes standing over six feet tall. Highly recommended. I will never grow tomatoes any other way again.
