I have done this with my cherry tomato plant- Last year I planted a whoooole lot (and being a novice gardener) they failed miserably. This year my plant is doing sooooo well upside down. Partially because it is quite top heavy and so being upside down and in a sheltered area means I dont have to stake it. It seems really happy too. I also have a strawberry plant growing upside down now too and that is also doing well. LOVE this idea!

That is an awesome Idea!! I've been wracking my brains for unusual planters, and that definitely fits! Great job!!  Wink

My neighbor has done this with a large (5 gall?) bucket this summer.  But wouldn't that get heavy?  And I was just thinking...regular plant pots have a hole in the bottom for drainage.  Couldn't you just use one of those?  I think it would look hilarious.  So what is the advantage of growing them upside down?  Is it just the using less space?  But why not grow them right-side up and just find a place to hang them?  Somebody please enlighten me!  It's still a fun idea, I guess.

If you could figure out a way to hang it and did use a regular pot and plant through the drain hole, then you could still plant plants up top too..that'd look awesome.

Very clever! I'm so glad you posted this. I especially appreciate the "very scientific" drawing in the tutorial. Grin
