Our Analysis
Watch the Commercial

While the Topsy Turvy planter works well for most users, some are disappointed that it can only handle small plants. It also needs constant watering, so leaving the Topsy Turvy unattended could result in dying plants. Even those who are happy with the Topsy Turvy say that it gets very heavy once it's filled with soil, which can make hanging it a hassle. A few customers say the plastic can tear easily when the planter is emptied, rendering it unusable. And it certainly works best outdoors, since water will drip after watering.

A reporter at KFVS in Cape Girardeau, Mo., tests a Topsy Turvy planter at a viewer's home, noting that tomatoes are ripening after just a few weeks. Customer reviews on Amazon.com, AsSeenOnTVGuys.com, and Epinions.com are generally positive, but a few are disappointed by some of Topsy Turvy's shortcomings. One review at Associated Content is very positive: She's able to hang her plants indoors during the winter, allowing her to grow fruits and vegetables all year.
