  • Self-watering to provide a steady supply of moisture for optimal tomato production
  • Container growing reduces weeding and chances of soil-borne disease

Our exclusive Tomato Success Kits have helped thousands of gardeners grow big crops of healthier, tastier tomatoes.

It also includes 1-1/2 lbs. of Gardener's Best Organic Tomato Fertilizer, an 8-5-5 slow-release fertilizer that is fortified with 4-1/2% calcium to help prevent blossom end rot.

            I bought a second grow kit; the first one worked so well. I use it on a deck. I had so many veggies, the plants had to be supported as they grew WAY past the supports that came with the kit.

                              Got this as a gift for a frinds birthday. Planted a Tomayoe, beii pepper, Basil and a shallot. We set it up together, growing organically. She loves it. Plants are blooming and she is thrilled with the self watering aspect. Her cats seem. To like eating the flowers, so her DH got creative and put screening all around it , now she is waiting for her first pepper and tomatoe.

                                        Best Uses

                                          I just put this together last night for the first time. The instructions were easy to read, it was relatively simple to put together, and it looks like it will be quite sturdy as it is made of quality materials. I have two caveats on assembly: first, if the tomato success container is going to be used outside, you have to make holes in two specific spots using either a hammer and nail or scissors (which required me to stop what I was doing, go track down those items, and then use some "elbow grease" to make the holes) right in the middle of the assembly process. Second, as another reviewer mentioned, the soil and tomato food are included but come in separate bags, and the instructions require the the soil and food to be mixed together and moistened in "another container" before the mix is added to the tomato success container. If you don't have another container big enough to mix these two things together before putting them into the tomato success container, the process will be much more difficult. For me, neither of these assembly issues detracts from the usefulness of the kit: I think it will be a wonderful addition to my container garden for many years, and wouldn't hesitate to purchase another--however, customers looking for a truly all-inclusive kit (and customers who are on the frail side) might want to take note and make sure they are prepared to handle these assembly issues.
                                          Suggestions for Gardener's Supply Co. on next year's model: (1) make the tops of the outdoor drainage spouts detachable, so that customers aren't required to drill holes (this is supposed to be an "all in one" product, after all), and (2) send the soil and plant food pre-mixed in a single bag (again, customers shouldn't need outside materials to put this kit together).
