How many tomatoes would one container hold? Is 4 too many?

Asked by: gardenista
We planted two tomatoes, once they start too grow and spread out, there's not much room. Tomato plants that are meant for containers are best.

How heavy/sturdy is it? We have strong winds with storms and I don't want to have to move the planter when it is windy.

Asked by: Nelster
I kept the wheels off mine when hurricane was coming and planter was still in same spot I placed it after storm was gone. The soil does keep it weighted down and of course, I did water it before storm hit so this added to its weight and placed it closer to house.

Little Pickers 24-1/2 in. x 20-1/8 in. Patio Garden Kit with Watering System and Casters, Kid-Themed is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 450.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

The picture of tomatoes planted with lettuce does not fit with the instructions given - they cannot be planted together according to the enclosed planting instructions. The rubber bands provided to hold the undersized black plastic sheet in place didn't even last 1 week! The instructions on placement of the fill tube are non-specific as to which corner of the box to use (not the grid) resulting in my incorrectly placing the fill tube on one of the boxes, and inadequate filling of the reservoir. I like the casters on the box - it makes it easy to rotate the box as the plants grow.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap rubber bands I am not sure I would recommend this poduct, but please be aware. The black plastic is just a sheet of black plastic . You have o put over the top and then you stretch a large rubber band around. Kind of difficult to make sure even on all 4 sides. It is not nice and neat like the picture. I bought 2 of these planters. When putting together, one of the wheels broke because I was having to put some much pressure on it to go into the planter. I then had to go and buy a new wheel which did not swivel because it was the closest to the size. I had for less than a month on my deck and both rubber bands broke within 2 days of each other. I am having to lay wood, rocks, etc on the 4 corners to keep the plastic sheet down. But the plants are doing well in the soil. You decide.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Setup for a Patio Garden I bought two of these garden beds to grow tomatoes and cucumbers on my patio. Assembly was simple and filling with potting mix was easy enough. It comes with very specific instructions for buying potting mix, garden lime, and fertilizer. I had to search very carefully to find the recommended potting mix - only one of about a dozen types I looked at had the correct ingredients (primary constituent sphagnum peat and/or coir). I followed the very detailed instructions to add the potting mix, garden lime, and fertilizer to the grow boxes, covered them with the included plastic mulch cover, and planted my crop. It is important to use enough potting mix to form a 2" mound above the sides of the box as directed. This will keep rain water from pooling on the plastic mulch cover. In my opinion the casters are only marginally able to handle the weight of the completed garden bed. I broke one rolling against a joint in my patio pavers. I added four segments of 18" long segments of border fencing to form a 12" to 18" high fence box to support my plants as they grow. So far my plants are doing great. Just water DAILY.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Consider Disposable Do not expect these to last. I have ordered three and two no longer hold water after one season.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wheels aren't sturdy with weight I bought this a couple summers ago and the wheel broke off the first time I tried moving it over my patio. I would say put it where you want it, fill it and don't move it which defeats the purpose of the wheels. Nice place for garden herbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase! Easy set up, easy to move if needed. I bought two. I planted strawberries in one and onions in the other. You could easily plant a mixed veggie or flower garden in these. My only complaint is that the mulch cover didn't fit. It's too small. I used my own mulch so it's no big deal. Overall, I'm happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best gardening product ever!! I have a lot of garden space available, so I wasn't sure if this was the right product for me. However, the results I've gotten from using it, and the ease of use has prompted me to buy two more. As an experiment I planted 8 vegetable plants in the Patio Garden Kit, and the same 8 plants in a regular pot. The vegetables in the Patio Kit are giant and thriving while the plants in the regular pots are sad looking and shriveled, even though I water and fertilize them regularly . The Patio Garden Kit gives the perfect amount of water so I can't over or under water. It's idiot proof, and perfect if you don't have a green thumb. You can also roll it in our out of the sun easily which is great.
