If you don't have room to plant directly in the ground, or if you don't want to dig a hole for your plant, or if you don't want to have ugly empty pots and containers outside during the winter, or you don't want to lug heavy pots inside for the winter, SCORE! I have 3 tomato bags, 3 potato bags, and 2 salad bags. This is my second season using them. They are great. I actually put my potted tomatoes in them and put them under grow lamps in the early spring. That way when it is warm enough to bring them outdoors, they can be full grown plants. They are easy to lift even when full of soil and a big plant. I even left the potato ones outside all winter and they didn't deteriorate. I love that they take up no room when you empty them for the season. I recommend them. I don't know why they are so expensive; however. They cost as much as a ceramic pot on sale! No matter, they are worth it.

I am happy with this product so far. I planted 3 different varieties of tomato and they appear to be thriving. Last year I used terra cota and had horrible results. The soil seems to be retaining enough water but not leaving the tomatoes with wet feet either. The opening is not as wide as some experts recomend for tomatoes. If you have box cages for the tomatoes they will not work in the bag. You'll need the traditional cone shaped one. It's been fine for me so far. I think this is great as it provides great depth for the roots.

I'm growing both tomatoes and potatoes in these bags and haven't had any problems. I live the SF bay area where it is damp/foggy most of the time and haven't had any issues with these retaining too much moisture or water. I've only moved the bags around a few times but haven't had any issues with ripping on about 9 different bags (3 potato/6 tomato). I'm gonna be hard pressed to go back to pots for my container vegetable gardens after getting these. The tomato bags will work for the potatos also, as i didn't really need the velcro side opening. I just harvested all of them once the top of the plants died off.

I love these bags. The handles are very important, so much easier than having to pick up the whole bag in my arms 'cause they can become heavy with damp soil in them. They are also attractive.
