Welcome to Orchard Cottage
We tried the topsy turvy tomato set up last year but find that we much prefer our own variation on the theme...we took a hanging planter and drilled a one inch hole in the bottom, lined it with newspaper, made an X thru the paper to insert the tomato plant root and then covered the root with a good potting mix and planted a basil plant at the top of the planter. So, we have this great looking basil plant on top and a grape tomato hanging beneath. We now have four of these planters, one with basil, one with sage, one with stevia and finally one with greek oregano. I love this idea...Mac is a genius!
