Developed in-house, the breakthrough technology of our self-watering planter makes it easy to grow tomatoes on your patio or deck, and have a bonanza of fruit all summer long. Airflow through the planter's sides and liner encourages lateral root growth, resulting in denser, healthier foliage and more vigorous fruiting above.
The reservoir reduces the frequency of watering, and delivers water to roots in two ways. First, a capillary strip draws water from the basin up to the soil. Second, a perforated grid allows for water to evaporate up — especially on hot, sunny days when plants get extra thirsty. This Dual-Hydrate system ensures consistent, even moisture delivery to roots — which is critical to plant success.
Our lead Product Tester calls this "by far the best container for growing tomatoes that I've ever used."
Recommended add-ons, sold separately:
Classic Tomato Support Extension, with an additional 22" of support for taller plant varieties. Our premium Organic Self-Watering Potting Mix and GSC Organic Tomato Fertilizer. Casters for easy mobility.

I would buy again but
from Mt juliet TN
I had a few problems. The structure didn't really hold together well. The rim around the top didn't stay on. I'm not sure how well the wicking system worked - will examine it when I tear everything down. Did not result in many ripe tomatoes. Lots of little ones but still haven't ripened. Some problems with blossom end rot. Is the grow bag reusable next season? I will use again with a different variety of tomato.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for all your helpful feedback on our Gardener's Revolution Classic Tomato Planter. Your gardening success and satisfaction are important to us and we've emailed you directly with some suggestions for the rim, potting mix, and a great harvest for next year. As long as you clean and dry the liner before putting it away for the winter, it should last another season or two. However, we will have replacement liners available next spring should you need another. If you have any other questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to our team of gardeners and friendly customer service representatives at 1-800-876-5520.

I would not buy this again
By Kathy E.
from Millville, MA
I am a long time Gardener's Supply Customer and have always been very happy with your products. Sadly I cannot say the same for this Planter. I own 4 of these ( 2 were presents) and 2 I bought myself because they looked so excellent until I used them. I have spent every day putting the wire supports back on. They fall off if you barely touch them and they fall off even if you don't. They pop right out of the holes. It is happening more often now as the tomatoes get taller and rely on the wires for support. For the price they lack quality.. This will not stop me from being a GSC customer but I am very disappointed.
Merchant response: We're so sorry you are having trouble keeping the support rings up on your Gardener's Revolution Classic Tomato Planters. Based on your description, we think the new locking clips will resolve the problem and we've reached out to you by email to get you some replacements. If you have any questions or concerns, please reply to that message or give us a call at 1-800-876-5520.
rolls easily,2 tomato plants fit nicely

Very happy with this product.

About Me Getting Started
It was a little tricky to put the wires on but the rest of the assembly was pretty easy. The self watering part is really good with the wicking bag and my tomato plants are thriving so far. I also ordered the wheels which makes positioning it on the patio really easy.

Best veggie planter ever!
from Hamilton, Oh
We added the casters for easy moving. Love the cage and irrigation system. Cucumbers and peppers in one pot, tomatoes and peppers in second. Perfect!
Good size and holds lots of water
from Pelham, NH
About Me Avid Gardener
These look very nice and hold a large amount of soil. I just planted my tomatoes in them (2 in each container that I bought) so I don't know yet how well they will do. The water reservoir is large and should help me with those weekends when I am away in Summer (which is what usually killed my tomatoes from being too dry). The containers were mostly assembled so I only had to put the soil bag and water wick in them to get going. The plant support system was difficult to assemble, but the online video was helpful to get that done.
Great so far
from Kent, WA
Our tomatoes are growing great.
