    Hopeful tomato success kit

    By black thumb gardner

    from texas

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Complete
    • Complete Kit-plants
    • Easy to assemble

    Cons

    • Unable To Use Tank 1st

    Best Uses

    • Limited Experience
    • Limited space
    • Small plants

    I liked that it came with everything except the plants. The one thing I thought was odd was it stated not to use the self watering part fo the first thirty days. I assume this is to let the plants get established but this is why I bought this "self watering planter kit"

    Best grow kit ever

    By Kathy the dirt girl

    from Prescott AZ

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Easy to move
    • Holds lots of water

    Cons

      Best Uses

        I have six of these that I use to grow tomatoes in Arizona. Last year my plants were 7 feet tall and loaded with tomatoes. I was not nearly as successful with plants in the ground or in other containers. Watering from below seems to do the trick. Just be sure to use mulch on top.

        Success with the tomato success kit

        By tomato lover

        from LaFayette.NY

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • On our deck
            • Patio

            Used this on our deck. Wheels allowed repositioning. I appreciated getting everything we needed in one place with clear instructions - no concerns about the type or amount of fertilizer. We were able to attach heavy plastic mesh to the cage to protect young plants (after raccoons dug them up a few times). The large reservoir enabled us to skip days of watering except in the very hottest weather. The only thing that might make this a bit better is an even larger reservoir that could take the plants through a hot long weekend unattended.

                  I bought one last year and it worked so well, I ordered another one this year. The cage contains the plants very well and with the casrters, it is easy to move if needed.

                  • Portable
                  • Use indoors or out

                  Cons

                  • Heavy when full of water

                  • Flowers
                  • Herbs
                  • Tomatoes

                  I really like not having to water EVERY day! I bought 3 last spring and another one this year. I have had good luck with all the plants I have used in them. My cherry tomatoes produced well into winter as I was able to move them into the garage during infrequent freezing weather.

                        I already have two of these tomato planters and just love them. My tomatoes love the soil and food, grow like weeds and produce awesome tomatoes. With our drought, we don't have to water as much, thanks to the reservoirs.

                        Cons

                        • Attracts Critters

                        Best Uses

                        • Tomatoes

                        In 2014 we purchased one tomato success kit. We grew tomatoes in various places to determine what worked best. In 2015 we purchased five more tomato success kits. Four of them will grow tomatoes. Two of them will test the potential of bell peppers grown in these planters. The only detraction is the need to protect the planters from the raccoons and other critters drawn to the fertilizer. We made a cage of welded wire hardware cloth to go over the top of the planter.

                        don't count on clips

                        • The Kit Was As Advertised

                        Cons

                          Best Uses

                            The kit was as represented. I bought the casters which made it easy to move when we had unseasonable weather.
                            Only drawback was the clips that hold caged together. I broke 5 of the 7 I tried to use. Finally gave up and used zip ties.

                                I used this product for the first time last year and liked it so much I bought a second one this year. I'm very bad at remembering to water and this kept my tomato plants producing through till the very end of the season with very little effort. Did use the full soil and tomato kit with it.
