Usually we see ads on TV and in gardening magazines with tomato plants in special planters growing upside down. It looks convenient to water and much easier to harvest, and the plants look healthy and laden with tomatoes.
Upside down planting is nothing new, it just needs to be adopted by more gardeners. It eliminates the need to have to pull weeds, till the soil or have to stake and support plants. As your plant is planted to protrude and grow through the hole in the bottom of your container and therefore grow down, you can plant other plants such as herbs or flowers in the normal way at the top of your container.
