Growing Tomatoes in an Upside Down Planter/Garden


Has anyone tried growing tomatoes in one of these upside down planters?


I used a topsy turvy bag but with limited success last spring.
I'm getting things ready for the forthcoming srping and Ive seen mixed reviews about these upside down methods

tried them a few years back and found they were very difficult to keep watered. The water drained through and they dried out faster than normal planters. Always fun to try something new.
