    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Don't have to tie up branches. Slugs can't get it.
    Cons: Difficult to water. Needs to be hung high off the ground.

    Summary: If you have been having success growing tomatoes the usual way--don't bother with this product. It's worth trying ONLY if you prefer a hanging plant (to avoid slugs or tying up branches) and have an EASILY accessible, SUNNY place to hang ... read more

    Pros: Tomatoes grow excellently, perfect alternative to the "usual" garden, no weeds!
    Cons: Hard to water, installation isn't always easy, needs frequent watering

    Summary: After using the Topsy Turvy last year, I WILL be using them this year. If I recall correctly, the installation of the Turvy isn't as easy as it looks. I've snagged my fingers in between the metal wires and the plastic slots used to hang the Turvy ... read more

    Pros: None.  There is not one feature that is beneficial.
    Cons: Too many to name. It's heavy, hard to water, dries out quickly, etc.

    Summary: I purchased one of these to see if they would be better than trying to grow them in a 15-gallon pot.  I must say that I have never had luck growing tomatoes in containers, they need watered twice a day - and I live in Wisconsin, where daytime summer ... read more
