Most of the reviews on the Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter that you find on the net are just people regurgitating the product specs, and if that’s all you’re looking for then we’ve got you covered – just scroll down to the bottom of the page. But if you’re looking for what sets the Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter apart from the imitations then read on!
First off, The Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter is probably one of the more expensive upside down planters on the market, but there’s a good reason for this: you get what you pay for.
Here’s some of what makes this planter a better choice than its competitors:
- Sturdier construction – the bag itself is heavier than others on the market and it’s reinforced with double-stitching at the seams to keep it from splitting under the weight of all those tomatoes.
- Better Hardware – the metal pieces, (internal ring, wire, and swivel), are thicker and feel stronger than the competitors’ brand.
- Higher quality – The inside straps are a tighter weave, (making them stronger), and the sponge for the bottom is not coarse and crumbly like other brands.
- Ease-of-use Features – With the Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter the top plastic actually comes off so that you can easily fill it with your plants and potting soil. With some other brands the plastic ring is affixed and makes it much harder to maneuver your hand within the bag to load it.
Now, for those of you who are still interested, I’ll regurgitate what the manufacturer has to say. =)
How the Topsy Turvy Tomato Planter Works
- Uses Gravity to it’s advantage by having the water and nutrients flow downhill from the bag into the roots.
- The bag itself heats up like the inside of a green house causing the root system to explode!
- Because it’s hanging upside down in the air and not touching the ground pests have a much harder time climbing aboard. This also makes it more disease-resistant.
