Benefits of an Upside Down Garden

I just purchased an Upside down Garden. This is a great product. I will no longer have to worry about groundhogs eating my tomato plants. I also will not have to worry about the roots rotting. I can't wait to plant.

I was wondering how those would be & it sounds really great!
I know someone who said they showed on TV to use a recycled 5 gallon plastic pail with a hole drilled in the bottom as the same difference as a more expensive kind like are sold (like yours).I think I would want a piece of plastic that is slit so the plant can come out but the dirt won't.The roots have to fit in the hole you drill .
Just place the tomatoe start roots first thru the hole in the bottom & add the potting soil & hang from a tree limb or clothes line pole or other sturdy place -- the one I saw was actually growing so i know it works !

Can you use milk jug upside down? Has anyone tried this?

My sister-in-law has this system for tomatoes. Last year was her first attempt and she was a little disappointed in the results. We think they may have gotten overheated. Hers are a dark green plastic and we live in HOT Sacramento.


I read online that someone used foil around the planters to reflect the sun away and had better results. Good luck! Post again at the end of the growing season -maybe even with photos!
