The Topsy Turvey Tomato Hanging Plant

By
Real Estate Agent with Regent Property Group 0480809

For years, I've tried to grow tomatoes in my backyard.  I don't have much of a green thumb for this... One y ear, I went through 7-8 different plants as they all kept dying on me.

This year, new house, new method! New way of thinking of things!

Instead of planting tomatoes, I decided to buy the Topsy Turvy.  Have you heard of this?  Basically, you hang this mini greenhouse outside and put the plant in upside down so it hangs.

I planted it last night. There are already two small tomatoes ready to grow big and strong.

Anyone have any good experiences with this thing?  If it works, I'm going to get another one for my basil.  I can grow basil, no problem, but the plant gets so big, it would be nice to let it hang upside down and out of the way.

By the way, ordering it from the infomercial or the website is a complete rip-off!  Buy it at Walgreens or wherever else they're selling them.  Online, it's $19.95 for 2 plus a recipe book plus two tomato slicers, however, it's $7.95 for processing and handling for EACH one sent.  It's ONLY $9.99 at the store!  Why pay the extra $16 when you don't have to... unless you just really want to see what their recipe book says.

Barbara, I just started some bell peppers and basil from seed. They're about 2 inches tall right now, and I'm going to get another topsy turvy to plant those.

Never heard of it but I want one.  We stopped doing tomatoes a couple of years ago but I miss them.

Donna:

I think those plants are a panic. I have about 50 tomatoe plants in our garden. I think those are great for people who don't have a formal garden area to work with. How about people in apartments and townhouses.

Donna - I have seen tomato plants in hanging baskets but have never seen one of these greenhouse things.  I currently have two tomato plants in one of my shrub boarders.  So far it is working.
