M20697 - Set of 2 Topsy Turvy Hummingbird Hangout Planters
More trouble than it's worth
I was so excited about these things, what a disappointment. First of all, they use a lot of dirt. More than I ever imagined. Good luck hanging something that heavy. The plant on the underside never grew, it simply died. The planter was messy and worst of all, IT TURNED WHITE IN THE SUNLIGHT! It was so ugly I think it scared the hummingbirds away. The plants on top did grow, but any hanging basket would have been more pretty.
Frustrating and weird!
I had used the topsy turvy tomato version of this so thought it would be terrific. Wrong!
The instructions were very hard to follow, the parts did not match the instructions, pieces did not fit, etc. I finally just put it the way it will work best for me, but I am sure I will not use it again. The plants have to be very small "seedlings" and for them to grow in colorado where I live in the short time it is warm weather here....next to impossible. Lesson learned on this one!
Don't believe what you are told.
Within a few days of hanging the Topsy Turvy they turned white ,so the beautiful red color that helps to attract birds doesn't happen. I haven't had one bird and we planted the recomended flowers. I would return for my money back but don't want to kill my flowers. Hopefully the flowers will cover the ugy white faded bags soon.
