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.

    EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN ONE BOX!

    By New Gardener

    from SE Wisconsin

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Easy to assemble

    Cons

      Best Uses

        What I liked immediately was that everything I need to plant my tomatoes is included in the kit. You don't even have to haul the planting mix or fertilizer because it comes in the box. The kits are easy to assemble although I haven't yet attached the cages because I'm waiting for warmer temperatures to plant my tomatoes. I'm really excited to get my plants going and am hoping for a good harvest. Although the instructions advise to put only one plant in each tub, I plan to plant two determinate tomatoes in each tub (I bought 5)and hope that they will have enough space.

        I am Impressed!

        By Sue Bee

        from Kansas City, MO

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

        • Simple Setup Looks Great

        Cons

        • We'll See If Any

        Best Uses

        • Deck or patio

        I have used a competitors similar kit. However, this one is nice because the water reservoir is part of the same pot. Of course it will grow tomatoes because my other ones do. My favorite thing is the casters. The cage provides good support, too. And, you DO NOT need directions to set it up. The bag of potting mix has all the directions you need. Only one thing, the pot took a little more mix than the 40 quarts that came with the kit. I bought extra anyway so not a problem. The casters are worth the little bit of extra cost.

        Pros

        • It is easy
        • Just follow directions
        • The Wheels Help

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Tomatoes
          • Will Try Cucumbers

          I have no place for a vegetable garden, but wanted homegrown tomatoes. This method worked well and allowed me to find sun during various times of the day in a shaded lawn. I bought another container this year to see if it would work for cucumbers too, will know in 6 months.

          Almost Perfect

          By Greg

          from West Chester, PA

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Optional Wheels Work Well
          • Sturdy

          Cons

          • Needs A Moisture Indictor

          Best Uses

            I wish it came with a water indicator (a float) to show you how high the water is. You can fill the reservoir from the side - good idea, but a reservoir level indicator would make it perfect.

            The wheels on my unit fit snug and did not, like some earlier reviews suggested, fall out when picking up the planter over say a door threshold. An yes, the planter is heavy and the wheels worth it.

              I have 2 of these and re-order soil every season. I have had them forever! Ordered the success kit and trolley for my daughter for her bridal shower gift because she was always "borrowing" my tomatoes.

                  This will be my first spring to grow tomatoes but my neighbor has one and I love it. She gives the tomatoes away because they can't go through it fast enough. I'm very excited to do it this year

                  • Great product
                  • Lots of tomatoes

                  Cons

                  • none

                  Best Uses

                  • Great For Cucumbers
                  • Great For Peppers
                  • Great Tomatoes

                  I have used my original planters for three years. I added another planter last year. I buy the replenishing kit for the planters. I make sure that I empty them at the end of the season and they are dry to store. I live in northern Michigan and you can't leave anything with water in it over the winter or it will break.

                  I have all of mine with the casters and start growing in May. I wheel them into the garage at night until our nights get warm enough to leave them out.

                  The self-watering feature is great as when it starts to get hot and dry up here or you are gone for the weekend it keeps feeding your vegetables. I have had great vegetable production from these and am planning on adding another one for this summer.

                    I have looked at these kits for a few years and my son bought me two for my birthday. I couldn't believe the results! I have grown tomatoes for 17 years and this was the best result I have ever had. The soil and fertilizer were so amazing I bought more for next year. I have since bought 3 more, and also purchased a few for my mother and sister. Simply amazing results!

                        Best Uses

                          Am delighted with the grow kit!I use it on my deck & am very glad I purchased the casters for easy rolling to "chase the sun" .They also helped immensely for setting up & assembly. The only problem I have had, is a critter ( not sure if it's a raccoon or a squirrel) loves that soil mix & tore it & my tomato plants all to heck. It must be the animal ingredients in the product. I would suggest leaving them out of the formula. The critter didn't bother any of my other plants that were in "vegan" (LOL) soil. It has happened twice now. I put chicken wire across the top of the soil the 1st time & they still got into it ! This time I wrapped the entire cage in chicken wire & hung sleigh bells on it to alert me of tampering !We'll see ! Still love the container & will probably order another one, but without the soil mix. I also ordered the cage extension kit, but haven't used it yet because the tomatoes aren't tall enough yet. But I think it will come in handy, as my plants usually reach 7' or 8' tall.
                          The service from the folks at Gardener's Supply is excellent, shipping is very prompt, merchandise quality is excellent & I will continue to order from them.

                              I spend the winter in a community that doesn't allow personal gardening outside one's own property lines. My hunch that your Tomato Success Kits would work well as grow boxes was correct. They're a perfect size and with the water reservoirs make gardening in the desert a cinch.
