Gardener's Revolution Classic Planters

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."

Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Planter:

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.

Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Planter:

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.

    Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Planter:

    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.

      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!

      Comments about : Gardener's Revolution® Classic Tomato Planter:

      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.
