Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: gardenista
Two container tomatoes and, if thy are dwarf enough one bell pepper plant ill fill all the space and then some. These containers are for bush determinate small plants bred for containers. Depth is a problem. Tomatoes must have strong root system and the loose type growing medium will not support heavy crops. It is best to use PVC pipe and build a tower to enclose the entire container and plant. In that way you can easily support all the fruit the plant can bear. The self watering system is a wonderful thing but in the hot Mid-South, Southeast, and deep South evaporation can move the water out rather quickly so check them more often than normal. A little practice and they will help you become a master gardener. I grow from seed and stay with compact plants bred for container. Big Boy is a large tomato and heavy producer. You can now get Bush Big Boy seed. There is a large list of what is now available in that respect. Good luck.

Does it come with all needed soil & amendments? Soil included ?

How do these handle the rain? I see some with a cover and some without or some under an awning and some in the open. How does the water drain out?
Asked by: JRW
There is no problem with rain. There is an overflow valve in the bottom of the planter that allows excess water to drain off. This same valve will start to drain to the outside when you water the planter and have reached its maximum.

Can I plant 4 jalapeno plants in here or would that be too many? Would only two or three be better?

Can I plant 4 jalapeno plants in here or would that be too many? Would only two or three be better?
Asked by: 1000Wilderflowers
You can probably plant 4 Jalapeno plants but make sure to keep them trimmed and you make have to put up some stakes with string or chicken wire to hold them up once they get taller. Make sure to pick your peppers when they are ripe.

I moved to the city and my cats no longer have access to a yard. We have an all brick patio. I cut sod to size and made two grass cat beds. My cats graze and then snuggle in their grass cat beds for a nice nap on the patio. I love that I can easily move these around the patio as needed thanks to the casters. I didn’t like how the tube went into the base during assembly; I think City Pickers could have designed that better. No big deal: just pack potting mix around it until the tube will stand up straight on its own. But, I think CP could’ve made some sort of notch to keep it upright. Otherwise, easy to put it all together and my cats are very, very happy with their new loungers!

Bought 3 City Pickers...easy to put together...have wheeled around to different locations over the weeks to find best location...each Picker tends to take different amounts of water, depending on size of the plants in each one...at this point, about 2 - 3 gallons each daily...live in southern NM and have had some record heat days already in May...learning this year which veggies/herbs to plant with each other based on size...this was the first year so still learning! Cannot say anything negative about City Pickers...the best price at The Home Depot (also bought all the seedlings at HD)... may add more Pickers next spring!

This year I grew greens in it and during the summer I moved half of them outside. I am not pleased with the cover. The ones ordered came with giant rubber bands and they wore out fast in the greenhouse. I called the store that I bought them from and they sent me a different kind of cover. These covers were fabric style with drawstring. they stayed on but wore out fast. The tube did not stay in well. The reservoir was not stable, they soil went right through the plastic mesh. I am not satisfied with having a large quantity of these boxes. I also use the Earthbox brand, their boxes are sturdy and the city pickers are not great compared to these. I was able to grow plants and I found the instructions a bit vague. Good luck with using the product. hope you have more luck. I will use these in the greenhouse this winter again to give them another try. I will use different soil and take more time to set these up.

They are an amazing way to successfully grow vegetables on your deck. I am not recommending my recent purchase of 2 special buy green ones, which I did return. They were a good buy at $25 each but they were old models that had a heavy plastic with elastic band mulch cover. The newer ones have a lovely breathable cover with a draw string mechanism. I paid the extra and bought those instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results I’ve been trying to grow tomatoes in central Florida (zone 9) for years without any success. My soil is very sandy and even my patio tomatoes grown in potting mix have been failures. This year I decided to go a different route and tried growing in a City Pickers box. I expected another failure, so I only invested in a single box to start. I planted 2 tomato plants (heirloom on the left, better boy on the right) on February 11. By March 11, they were 4 feet tall, so I went out and purchased 2 more boxes and immediately planted a couple sweet pepper plants and an “early girl” tomato plant. At the 2 month mark, my original 2 tomato plants are over 6 feet tall and have dozens of tomatoes growing. I couldn’t be more pleased.

The watering tube shifts easily - neither my husband or I were able to realign it to feed into the reservoir, we suspect because the "connecting hole" becomes clogged with soil. The water overflow opening at the bottom of the planter also becomes clogged. It's supposed to indicate when it's time to stop watering by having water drain out of it when the water level is sufficient. Because it becomes clogged, there's no such indication and one accidentally overwaters. Both my husband and I tried to unclog both the watering tube connection and overflow opening, but were not able to do it. As a result of accidental overwatering, it appears both the tomato plants I put in the grow box will die. I'd return the grow boxes I bought, but that would cost money and very precious time, so have to keep them unless I want to lose even more money and time. I'll drill some drainage holes in the bottom and use the grow boxes as regular planters. Save your money. Buy a regular planter, fill it with good soil and water your plants from the top as needed.

The city pickers raised garden bed seems like a good choice for growing tomatoes or other vegetables on a deck or patio. We purchased two of them...they were easy to put together and we found each one used exactly one 1.5 cubic ft bag of garden soil. It was a little tricky to get the huge rubber band to secure the black plastic tarp that the seedlings get planted through....but once the tarp is in place correctly it seems quite secure. Filling the self watering tray on the bottom was easy through the plastic tube provided.It is good that the beds roll to make it easy to hose or clean the area around and under them. Seems like a good purchase so far..it just remains to see how well the seedlings grow.

As a long time Earthbox user, I was attracted to the much lower price of City Pickers. I am very pleased with their ease of use (the casters are very flexible and easy to move around), and the high quality of the materials. In particular, the mulch cover is heavy, uses a drawstring to attach rather than an elastic, and is made of a permeable landscape fabric that lets rainwater enter the box. This saves so much water! As you can see by the picture, the plants are thriving and I look forward to a bountiful harvest.
