I have an itty bitty apartment on the bottom floor so no place to garden. I am going to give the topsy turvy planter a try as well. If you arn't brand loyal I just bought one from amazon for $8 that is almost identical to the one on TV. Also I am going to give growing an herb garden from old soda bottles to hang in my front window. check out the site urban-organic-gardener(dot) com for info about it.
