I have seen the commercials for those Topsy-Turvy planter things.
Anyone ever try them? If so, do they work?
Pretty much the only reason I did it: for the kids. I planted a tomato plant, and it appears to be doing fine so far.Lauraluvstomatoes wrote: My kids loved it so that was worth it!

I think I may give it a go with one of my plants.
I suspect in theory it would be better to bury the plant deeper, however I generally think it would be harder because you probably have to hold the root ball and work some dirt around it carefully without damaging the vine. It would probably be a little difficult to do. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s also best to work with a seedling thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fairly mature; like about 24 inches tall; this way the plant will be able to quickly bend and grow up toward the light. If you try this with a plant that is too small the growth has a tendency to be slower in the shade and the plant keeps on trying to grow back into the pot.GardenJester wrote:hmmm... I wonder if you have to deep bury the seedling also like you do when planting it regularly?
