Whether your home has ample room for a garden or just limited space on a balcony, upside-down planters make it easy to grow tomatoes at home.
Now, growing tomatoes upside-down may sound like a strange idea, but versus in-ground planting, free-hanging methods carry some distinct advantages:
- There’s never a need to weed
- Garden pests are rarely an issue
- Only the tiniest of spaces are required
The hardest part of growing tomatoes upside-down, actually, is finding a suitable apparatus.
But if DIY is not your thing, Hammacher Schlemmer makes a suitable, $80 solution called The Upside Down Tomato Garden. It’s pictured at right and measures 25″ square at its base — compact enough to fit most anywhere.
