How to Hang a Topsy Turvy

Overview

You can grow healthy, disease-free tomatoes with the Topsy Turvy planter. This upside-down tomato growing container is the solution to some of the common issues gardeners face when growing tomatoes--soil diseases, overwatering and nutrient absorption. Assembling and planting the tomato in the Topsy Turvy is simple. When hanging the Topsy Turvy, gardeners need to consider the weight of the planter along with the increased weight as it grows.

Step 1

Hang the Topsy Turvy in a secure location. The he weight of the soil alone will be heavy. The planter's weight will also increase as the plant grows. A secure wood post will support the weight of the plant securely.

Step 2

Predrill a hole in the wood post. Attach a 3/16-inch drill bit to the drill and press the drill trigger, placing the drill on the wood post and pressing the trigger until the hole is formed.

Step 3

Screw the eye hook clockwise into the wood post until you are unable to screw the hook any further. The appropriate eye hook is provided when you purchase a Topsy Turvy planter.

Step 4

Place the hanging wires over the hook end of the screw eye.
