Rated 1 out of 5 by barcleab cheap product
The directions "snap into place," connect butterfly hinge to rectangular hole," etc., make it sound easy, but it is far from easy to construct. I had to use duct tape to keep the fasteners together, and the "snap into place" directions for mounting it on the stand are ludicrously misleading. I won't be ordering from this catalog again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by deckplanter My second tower
I bought a flower tower last year and thought it looked so great, I bought a second one this year. It takes a lot of plants to fill them both (66!), but they look great on my deck in front of the floor to ceiling windows of my dining room. I enjoy them from inside and out!

Rated 2 out of 5 by bartbear I found it difficult and clumsy to put together
I like the idea of this product very much. I have had compliments from neighbors on the way it looks. But it took me nearly two hours to assemble it because my hands were not strong enough to push the tabs through. I finally used a coat hanger wire with a small hook on one end which helped.
I bought two, and have not yet assembled the second one.
Also getting the dirt and plants into it took time, as you have to feed the dirt between the central watering post and the outer wall <2" , down a 30 Inch pipe. I would buy more only if the product were redesigned in sections.

great for small spaces that want a lot of "volume" to showcase plantings.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LSha Poor Quality
This tower is very cheaply made. When I got it filled about 3/4 of the way up with flowers and dirt, the bottom popped off. There was no way to reassemble it without completely dismantling the entire thing (removing all the plants and pouring the dirt out on my driveway). There are little tabs that hold the bottom and top pieces together. If those tabs were bigger, it would not fall apart so easily. In addition, as I was setting it on my deck (three of us holding it together so it didn't pop apart again), the bottom cracked. Now I have it wired to the railing so it won't fall over. I would have paid so much more for a quality product. I don't understand the benefit to making something so cheap. These are a disposable, maybe one time use product. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chefmartyb neat idea
This was a snap to put together, and easy to fill. We've got impatiens in there getting bigger by the day. I especially liked the center watering tube. In fact, I adapted several other planters by drilling holes in 1" PVC to replicated this watering mechanism.

Very poor design tower garden. While watering via center tube and letting water filter into soil , all it does is force water to push our dirt over plants, vegs and flowers making a DIRTY mess!
