Answer: 
I bought some mulch film and cut to size about a foot wider and longer than the top of the box. I secured the mulch film by tucking the extra length inside the box between the soil and box. It's much easier and more durable than taping or securing the sheet outside the box. You also get the benefit of rainwater flowing into your box.

Answer: 
You can order on line. They come with the huge rubber band to hold them in place. Or giant BLACK plastic garbage bags do the trick, but when the rubber band goes bad, then multiple bungee cords might work to hold them in place. Mulch covers are important..helps weeds from growing keeps moisture in & draw moisture up towards top of container & also helps to keep off excess rain water from plants & soill

Answer: 
I just called the manufacturer and they said at Homedepot.com. Search for mulch covers, or just use plastic garbage bags to cover the top, secured with bungee cords. The rep said that they use them there; I presumed "there" means at their facility.

Was this product made in China. If so, has anyone tested it for TOXINS in the resin material? Will a plant cage work with this system?

What little instructions included are very vague. You can actually learn more just by reading all the questions and answers here. Mine is still sitting unused (as the planting window disappears) because the casters don't go in. I don't want to just set the unit on the wheels and hope they stay when moving it around outside. They don't seem to fit, no snap, no way to put them "in" anything that holds them Read More

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome for beginner I'm a beginner to gardening. I planted tomato, peppers and beans so far and they're growing really well. I didn't plant from seed, I got the small plants from the local home depot stores. Pictures attached are photos taken at Day 20. See more information here: http://thefamilyoflove.com/container-gardening-little-pickers-2-day-10/ May 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love my patio garden I saw the patio garden kit on The Chew and purchased two of them the same week! I bought my starter plants and soil at HD as well. After letting the kits and the plants sit for about two weeks, I planted them and the results thus far have been amazing. I'm growing tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant, green peppers, basil and rosemary. July 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect balcony size This has been the pefect size for me on my apartment balcony. I have planted two tomato plants, and two zucchini (both are 'patio' varieties that won't grow quite as huge as standard plants, though). I believe the instructions said that I could plant up to 6, but I don't want crowding. I did not use the plastic cover/rubber band, after reading that the rubber band tends to dry out and snap. I am using my own mulch instead, but I DO actually use the tube that sends water to the bottom of the container, which has really helped my plants a lot. I hear the full system is most effective, of course, but I didn't want to have to deal with bungee straps or duct tape to get the cover to work. The only thing "kid themed" about it is the turquoise color and the fact that the instruction manual has more kid friendly images. Otherwise, it seems to be exactly the same as the standard City Pickers. I read some other reviews that the casters gave people issues, but mine popped right in with a snug fit and have given me no trouble. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing! We are in rental property now & building a home, so we can grow now & move later! Fantastic little growing pot. We are moving soon, so can start plants now & move with us. Love that they are portable & able to use year after year. Slightly heavy after all is in, but worth the opportunity to be able to start the plants now, gets us ahead of the limited grow season here in Colorado. I will also use these in Florida, to keep the dirt confined due to the saltiness of gulf air. Vegetables & herbs both seem to like this & you can reuse the dirt for several years & just add the nutrients to beef up the potting mix. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Easy to use I bought four of these since I never seem to be able to grow a garden and thought raised beds would be better. These are small but great for porch growing. So far I really like them. I only planted two so far each with three tomato plants and some pepper plants. They are not dead yet after a week so I must have done it right. lol The instructions were easy to follow and if using all the correct supplies as stated in the directions I know that my plants are getting all the nutrients, fertilizer, and water they need to grow big and strong. I can't wait to harvest some tomatoes. April 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to assemble The directions require a moist layer of "potting mix" but no potting soil. Also dolomite was needed and took a bit to figure out what that was. Otherwise assembling it was quick and easy. So I let my 5 year old do most of it. A mallet was needed for him to lock a few parts in place. June 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great tomato planter I can never seem to get my tomatoes to grow properly and my friends are always over abundant. Her secret.....using these grow boxes. My tomatoes have no fruit yet but the plants are large, deep green and the healthiest looking plants I've ever grown. So looking forward to the harvest as there are already numbeous flowers on the plants! June 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by We shall see...... Planted 6 cherry tomato plants. Have lost 2. Hopefully the rest will flourish - too early to tell at this point. Set up was easy. May 17, 2016
