It also allows you to hang the plants off your porch or from a potted plant holder from a lightpost or off your house.

If you have rabbits and deer, that's really helpful.

I hope so! I'm going to try this. I bought some branded "topsy turvy" planters and they're gaudy as hell. I think that if you do these carefully they look nicer than the branded topsy turvy planters.

I loved the tip about the coffee filter.

Re: Red neck topsy turvey gardening.
My neighbor bought one of those topsy turvy handing planters last year.........used it through the summer and left it hanging there thru the winter.......

It literally crumbled into a million pieces and just fell apart as it was touched.

Ya'll know that dang pepsi bottle will last a million years before it disintegrates. LOL

This idea of the topsy turvy is marketing so you will have to buy another one every season.

Re: Red neck topsy turvey gardening.
When I was at Disney World a few years ago, I saw some stuff likehis in Epcot Center. They have a huge experimental garden you take a tram through. They had all these plants that grew upside-down there. They were for saving space, or something, and if I remember properly, those didn't even grow in soil! Then a few years later, Topsy-Turvy plants are available to the public.
Gotta love Disney Imagineering!

We are moving in a few weeks to a new apartment, and I want to have a balcony garden there. These topsy turvey plants seem like a nice option for an apartment building.

Re: Red neck topsy turvey gardening.
I am going to do this with my pear tomatoes, roma tomatoes and Cherry tomatoes. I haven't been interested in spending the $10 a topsy turvy and the logic is adequate on her proposal.

Though, with the tying of the strings, I would loop one string through two holes(across from each other) then on the other half of the bottle, string another equal lengthed string through those two opposing holes. It will balance better if its windy and it seems like it will be stronger then the simple knot she uses to combo those 3 cut strings.

Just a suggestion.

Marigolds are good for on top of the plant...
But, I would recommend oregano, basil, thyme, to complement flavor and add to the edible gardening factor.
If you want flowers, nasturiums are fully edible flowers, and colorful and would grow nicely.

What a coincidence! I was just reading up on herbs for container gardening.

There are herbs that have small and shallow root balls that are great for small containers.

Here's what I was just looking over: [link to www.superbherbs.net]

--Mediterranean herbs such as lavender, sweet marjoram, thyme, and rosemary like a sandy soil.
--Sweet marjoram and thyme do well together.
--Rosemary, lavender, lemon verbena, and sage make fine single specimens in a 9½" to 12" pot.
--Parsley and dill have longish taproots and will do best in a deep pot.
--Mint likes it wet and shady.
--Coriander and parsley like a bright spot without direct sunlight and like it cool and wet.
--The following herbs are suitable for hanging baskets: In sun-creeping thymes, prostrate rosemary, and ivies. In shade-pennyroyal and mints.
--If you have an itty bitty space for culinary herbs, consider a window box with parsley, chives, rosemary, creeping lemon thyme, and basil, if it is a sheltered spot. Calendula or nasturtiums add a bit of color and can be eaten in salad.

Re: Red neck topsy turvey gardening.
Do your research on the container you want to use. I just read that some plastics can leach BPA, so that is a concern.

Here's the info:

The food industry and major business groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, are threatening to withdraw support for a long-pending bill to improve food safety, saying they are upset by a proposed amendment that would ban bisphenol-A, a controversial chemical, from food and beverage containers.

BPA is used in thousands of consumer goods, including compact discs, dental sealants, and credit card and ATM receipts, but health advocates say they are most concerned about BPA's presence in plastic food containers, bottles and the epoxy linings of metal cans because it can leach into food and beverages. It is found in the urine of more than 90 percent of the U.S. population, according to federal estimates.

BPA was developed in the 1930s, and commercial uses exploded in the 1950s after scientists discovered its ability to make plastics more durable and shatterproof. A ban would create significant problems for many food manufacturers who do not have BPA-free alternative packaging, Faber said.

Re: Red neck topsy turvey gardening.
1. do not drink any pop it will kill you or give your diabetes eventually, but the bottles do work great, you can use other types of containers if you don't purchase deathpop.
2. great way to add acreage, you don't have to weed, it's actually a kinda 'green' thing cause your not wasting water
3. great way for apartment dwellers or ladies who don't have men to rotatille but still want those fresh veggies for their salads, just go pop off a few tamaters or peppers outta the deck garden.
4. good for people who have varmint problems.
5. fresh veggies, healthy for you, eat them, you know they are organic.


the government will find a way to fine us for this.
The Lord is good.
