It does not come with the soil, it does come with wheels you attached yourself, a plastic cover that goes over the dirt and you poke holes in it to allow the veggies/fruits to grow through, it has like a pole that goes in the corner which I use to pour water into, to get to the bottom.

Answer: 
Thank you for the interest in our product. This does not come with the soil, dolomite, etc. These items are easily purchased at any lawn and garden section. Once in use, though, they do produce fantastic plants that grow big and very fruitful. Once again, thank you for your interest and enjoy the rest of the summer season.

Answer: 
No, you will have to purchase your desired type of soil and amendments. If you will be planning to grow plants that thrive with caging or support, you will also have to add those pieces. I recommend holding the cover on with rocks or office supply binder clips; the rubber band included might hold on for a couple of days...

Answer: 
No. It is the unit, wheels, inside grate and black plastic cover and rubber band. You purchase soil and all additives plus plants and/or seedlings. I would advise using twine or rope to tie the black plastic cover into place. The rubber band will break within a day or two.

I am now using the garden bed, with great success (two Giant tomatoes).

Alas I have lost the original user's manual. Is there an online site, where I can download that needed manual? I want to duplicate my results next year.

August 15, 2016
Answer: 
Thank you for the question regarding the use of our product. The type of soil/mix is called potting mix. The reason for its use is that once it is moistened it will "wick" the water from the bottom of the planter up towards the seeds/seedlings/plants. Once again, thanks for your interest and enjoy the rest of the summer season.

Answer: 
I had a problem with the elastic band also. Mine broke first week. I took twine and tied it around the black plastic cover. I mentioned the elastic band in my first recommendation. The unit is nice, but the design to use a black plastic akin to a trash bag, should be replaced with a more reliable better fitting snap on/off molded plastic lid that allows for plants to come through.

Answer: 
Don't bother, Chez2. Based on what reviewers said about how ineffective the bands were, I didn't use them at all. Instead, I used small metal clips I had. I'll bet binder clips (from an office supply store) or clothes pins would work just as well. Good luck!

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 427 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful garden planter This is a good sized deck garden planter. It holds water in the bottom that continues to water no mater how hot it gets. My plants are doing great. I just wish the wheels would stay on when I move it off the deck for cleaning. This is built weld and I now have 2 planters. July 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cannot Believe the Growth! 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. June 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patio garden 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! June 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 4, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great buy! Extremely happy with my purchase... using it for herbs May 17, 2016
