Topsy Turvy Upside Down Tomato,

Do Upside Down Tomatoes Work?

I am experimenting with the upside down tomato this is new to me so I am a little skeptical .they are growing ,
this is working it is a new Concept in gardening they say Doubles Your Tomatoes and Keeps Plants Healthy
The benifits No Staking - Since the tomatoes are hanging from the planter, you have no need to stake them, or bother with any other types of support other than the planter hanger.
Soil Borne Pests - Since the tomato plants don't rest on the ground, you don't have nearly the problems with slugs and other soil borne pests.
Soil Borne Disease - SInce you are likely to replenish the soil annually with a planter, problems with diseases lurking in the potting soil are significantly lower.
Improved Air Circulation - Since the tomato plants are suspended in the air, you get a lot better air circulation. This results in improved pollination and higher yields, and fewer problems with rot

Weeds - Since the planter has very little exposed soil, there are almost no problems with weeds and no need for weeding.

Location - The beauty of container gardening is that you can do it almost everywhere. You can hang one of these planters on your apartment or condo balcony, or you can hang it on your patio so you don't have to travel to the garden to get fresh tomatoes for your salad.
