I don't normally rave about a product but I am really impressed with City Pickers. I've been an avid gardener for years; the past two, trying out the straw bale method. I liked that, but I think City Pickers has it beat! I've experienced phenomonal growth of the tomato and pepper plants in just 4-5 weeks and I will have fruit much earlier than ever before. After reading reviews about the high failure rate of the rubber band included for securing the black plastic "cover", I didn't bother with it, choosing instead to use small clips.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BetsyW These are going to give us a great garden this year.
We are very pleased with this purchase. We are Seniors and last year we did not have a garden because it had become to hard for us. We did some research and found these on several different sites but at a much higher price than Home Depot. We purchased 3 of them. We had another large planter and after seeing these made some changes and now we have four large beds. Our son built them a platform to sit in at waist level. No more bending over to weed. It is great. (pictures attached) We bought our plants and four large bag of potting soil and things are coming along. Shipping was fast, they came in 5 days. Yes we would recommend these for anyone but especially for Seniors.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JEFF So Far SO good - but only a season will tell
I gave it a four, but it could and will become a five depending on the results. I got them and setup about three weeks ago. The setup was quick and easy. The weather did not permit anything sooner. I planted 6 tomatoes in one and 4 tomatoes and 1 eggplant in another, I wish I would have read the question and answers prior to this and would have limited the number of plants. They are growing real fast - watering once a week. But as it gets hotter it looks like I will have to water daily. Also worried about supporting the plants as they grow. I will probably build supports around them. The pics show my two planters one is about 4 weeks the other three. Both are doing really well.
I will update my posying at end of year to tell how they did.

I let the grandkids use this to plant a garden - they have way too many plants per container, but everything seems to be producing vegetables. It's only the end of June & they have already picked Peas, green beans, zucchini, summer squash & peppers. I will definitely use again next year!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by westside1 City Picker
I found the city picker to be convenient for growing lettuce and herbs. I like the wheels so I can easily move it out of the sun to a shadier area when needed. I was a bit disappointed with the black plastic cover and rubber band to hold it into place. That was a bit tacky. Seems the manufacturer could have provided a simple, plastic, removable top. But, overall Im happy with the City Picker. I have already harvested the lettuce I need on a daily basis. I like the convenience of having and growing my own food.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bogeygolfer Great for tomatoes
This is the second season I have used this to grow tomatoes. I was so happy with the tomatoes last year that I bought a second planter. I followed the directions, using a mix of potting mix and peat moss, added a layer of garden lime and some plant food.
