Works well if your plants survive initial placement
May 20, 2010
The Topsy Turvy Hot Pepper Planter is very cool. It's the perfect option for those who wish to grow peppers without having an entire garden. I planted hot banana pepper plants in mine several weeks ago and mine still look very healthy and they are continuing to grow quite well.
However, it was rather difficult to get the new plants into the contraption without damaging them. You are supposed to squeeze them through the holes and anchor them in place and then fill the rest of the container with potting soil. I purchased the smallest plants that I could find at my local home improvement store but they were still too big to easily fit into the Topsy Turvy. I was forced to rip off some of the root and dirt and really squeeze them inside. I am surprised that they have survived considering the trauma that I probably put them through. It would be nice if there was an easier way to do this. I think next year I will grow my own plants from seed and then move them to the Topsy Turvy when they are much smaller.
I would also be sure to water it every day that it doesn't rain otherwise it will dry up and your plants will die.
