Additional Information

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

  • Grow the tastiest vine-ripened tomatoes in our revolutionary planter
  • Clapboard-style planter is sized to fit 2 super-productive tomato plants
  • Complete organic kit — just add plants!
  • Kit includes Classic Planter, 34" high support, three 20-qt. bags of Organic Self-Watering Potting Mix and 5 lbs. of GSC Organic Tomato Fertilizer
  • 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

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."

Very Difficult to Assemble

By Ann

from Elizabeth City, NC

Verified Reviewer

Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Garden Kit:

It took a couple of very frustrating hours to put the support structure together and I still have not snapped the small locks on. Plan to look at the tutorial and hope there's some trick as I cannot get them to snap over the assembly.

In the process of trying to put the rings on, they kept falling off. As the instructions said to plant the tomatoes before assembling the support, the rings fell on the tender plants and broke one of them off. I moved it to a raised bed and it recovered but I would not put the plants in until the structure was assembled.

The top rim piece of the pot also does not want to stay connected to the base.

Don't purchase

Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Garden Kit:

After two hours of trying to get the first locking clip on I gave up. I am very disappointed in this product. I have ordered from Gardeners supply company for years and this is the first time I had an issue. I watched the video and it didn't help.

Time will tell

By Tomato lover

Pros

  • Nice size, sturdy base, wheels, self watering

Cons

  • I CANNOT get the clips to fasten

Best Uses

  • Yummy tomatoes

Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Garden Kit:

I'm looking forward to having tomatoes this year since I can't grow them in my garden. I live along a deer highway! Last year I purchased the smaller version and the wind kept knocking it over. This new version has more weight and comes with ties so I can attach it to the railings. I have not finished putting the top together since I can't get the clips to stay. I will say I would recommend this product as long as they correct the clips.

This is impossible to put together

To construct the support and lock units is very, very difficult after two days we have one installed.

Impossible to put together

By Johnh

from Boston, Ma.

Verified Reviewer

Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Garden Kit:

By Gardeners own admission, the locking clips for the tomato cage are almost impossible to attach. They have re-engineered the clips and have new ones on back order, not due to be shipped until the middle of June 2017. This is half way through tomato season. Yet they are still selling this item without warning you that they cannot be put together. Do not buy this item until Gardeners can assure you that the new clips are supplied. I spent two hours trying to get one clip attached and I still have not succeeded.

      I had the same problem as many of the people.

      By Ron the Gardner

      from Maryland

      Pros

      • Nice looking planter

      Cons

      • Clips were very hard to use. Most broke

      Best Uses

        Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Garden Kit:

        Cut myself twice trying to put together. Need to use duck tape to hold together. Clips were very poor design. I will call them to see if there is a better way. The clips, as most have said, are broken or break upon trying to put together. Should not ship 3 bags a soil in planter. Hard to handle and planter cracked. Too much weight, especially during shipping.

        The clips were impossible!

        By Abby

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Garden Kit:

        I like the idea of the water reservoir and the size of the planter is ideal for our space. My main issue was the clips needed to assemble the wire structure. Out of the 20 I only got 2 to click in to place. One of the pieces was broken. When I called about getting it replaced the customer service rep said the clips had been redesigned and they'd ship them to me in June. Seems like a long time to wait!

        Quality is terrible + very difficult to assemble

        By Mar

        from Kemah, Texas

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • grows tomatoes well

        Cons

        • all pieces don't fit and stay fitted
        • difficult to assemble without 2 people
        • Parts came broken

        Best Uses

          Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Garden Kit:

          There is a piece that attached around the rim of the planter and will not stay locked down, it's like it was make to small for the planter. Part of the planter pieced inside the unit were broken, but we went ahead and used it because they were not visible once dirt was in. Unit ships with a bag of potting soil, which is most likely why the interior plastic pieces were broken. The wire support extension have a plastic snap piece that took two people and a knife to snap together.
