HOME MADE TOPSY TURVEY TOMATO GROWER (Kathy's)

You can make your own up-side-down tomato grower for much less money by placing the plants into the hanging plant containers you get at the garden or grocery store. Hang them on a Sheppard’s Hook (Kathy says she uses one with 2 hooks attached on either side). As the plants grow they will grow up-side-down because she has not staked them and because of the weight of the plants. She says to grow cherry tomatoes as the larger tomatoes don’t work as well.
