Rated 5 out of 5 by golfingisfun Good for novice gardeners
i purchased two of these "Garden on Wheels" for my deck. The instructions were easy to follow. In one container I planted two tomato plants. I made a diagonal trough for the fertilizer, because it created a bit more room to place the plants. I also added two round stake supports.
The tomato plants are HUGE now, with several tomatoes and many flowers . I should be getting a great crop from just two plants. The other planter I used for petunias. It is easy to keep the plants watered and it is impossible to overwater. I may purchase two more next year to expand my vegetable gardening.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Ari1982 Missing mulch cover.
I was under the impression that this came with a mulch cover as per the description. Mine was shipped without one, so I have not been able to actually use the product yet. Do they all come without one or is this a manufacturing mistake?

Rated 4 out of 5 by carpsmarsh Great Idea!
It's a little fussy. Had to buy a specific fertilizer. Instructions are very particular about how to set it up. Put in 4 tomato plants and they've been growing like gangbusters. IMPORTANT LESSON: Soil isn't really deep enough to support stakes that have heavy tomato plants hanging off them; do set up wire cages in the very beginning! I didn't and I regret it.
Love the fact that I can roll it around on my deck to take advantage of the best sunlight. It's pricey, but should last many years.
