- Easy-add holes for supporting canes
- Reinforced robust handles
- Two planters in every pack
This great-value pack of two Tomato Patio Planters lets you enjoy home-growing even if you just have a patio or balcony. These weather-proof planters, a generous 45cm (18in) in diameter, will fit two to three tomato plants for a handsome harvest every summer.
With brass-ring drainage holes you can’t overwater as excess water drains away. If you are growing tall cordon tomato varieties you can add bamboo canes into the slot on the side of your planters and tie in the stems and they climb.
If you want your plants to follow the sun, simply pull the planters with the robust handles to sunny areas. We recommend that you get the help of a partner if the soil is heavy to prevent injury. When not in use you can fold down the planters flat and store away, using up little space.
Leave a gap of around 5cm (2in) from the top of the planters when filling with multi-purpose compost or other soil. This is so your planters have room for the water without spilling over the side. Water daily in the growing season from spring filling the planter to the top and let the water seep into the soil naturally.
