Yeah I don't think most people grow for the economics of it. I personally grow as a hobby. I'm sure others grow as a way to ensure 100% organic. Either ways...Don't thread crap son
These are absolutely amazing. I used three last summer and got endless basil and parsley in one and TONS of tomatoes in another. The third one had strawberries that didn't really make it, no idea why.
These things can conveniently hold two full size tomato plants. I was only limited by the height of the cages I purchased (5ft), my plants were easily 7ft tall and I had to trim them frequently to control their size. I actually had three plants in there, one of them was supposed to be special for pots but since it's small it didn't get a lot of sun as it was shadowed by the other ones and I barely got any tomatoes from it. Still, from the two other plants I had in there I could pick about a pint every two days, which is more than enough.

I highly recommend this product. It also comes with detailed instructions and a shopping list with the types of soil, fertilizer, etc that you need to buy in order to use it, so even clueless gardeners like me can use it successfully.

Edit: decided to get another one and try my luck with cucumbers and peppers this year.

Edit 2: The tomato plants that grew wonderfully in these are Bonnie's Juliet and Yellow Pear. Of course, this varies by location. I'm in NYC and temps here rarely get over 100 degrees in the summer.

Ive had this for a couple years now and really like it. My tomato plants get 8-10ft tall easily. I'm going to pick up a couple more.

Good find, but a bit small for me. Thanks for the post.

yea, will take a lot of time, water and effort to recoup the $20. better off buying what you intend to grow at the store to save time and perhaps money.

How many plants can you fit in it? It looks small.

Holy cow, 8-10'?? That's almost Little Shop of Horrors status! Management here would have me cut it all down...

This seems like a good deal if you want to grow on your condo patio. If you have any sort of a backyard (even a small one) getting (or making) a bigger box and growing vertically is probably the best way to go

not necessarily. This doesn't take a lot of effort after the initial setup. You do need to buy potting mix, fertilizer and garden lime though. Where I live, tomatoes are fairly expensive, especially if you like cherry or heirloom tomatoes. It's also a lot of fun to pick your own tomatoes that you grew so even if I broke even it was still worth it for me.
