Back in May, we bought 2 Topsy Turvy planters and planted tomatoes in one and cucumbers in the other. I had done some research on these prior to purchase, and we saw that we could grow something besides tomatoes in them, so we decided to give it a try. They were not difficult to assemble, but are a little easier if you have two people. We first hung them both on our shepherd's hook in the back yard, but the vines quickly grew to the point where they were brushing the ground, so we had to make other arrangements. Our neighbor suggested that we hang them from the swing set, so we tried that next.
