I am a bit concerned about the 8 inches as well, but most of those on Amazon (the reviews) have said the tomatoes did fine. I have pretty much decided to use my old slightly raised containers for the tomatoes and leave the shallow ones for other things. I am going to plant my okra is the old planters as well. I just do not think, regardless of the reviews the new ones will hold tomato plants. The will, probably hold green beans,peppers and certainly the herbs.

Are the dimensions noted in the ad? If so, it's up to the consumers to read them.

yes, but if you have little experience with say, gardening you may not know how deep a planter needs to be to produce a good crop? I am an experienced vegetable grower and even I had no idea until I measured just how deep a raised container should be for growing. Of course I know some veggies need deep containers as they have deeper routes. That is why I always do read reviews before I purchase. Everyone should. I would feel sorry for someone who did not understand and found out after buying a container, spending the money and putting it together is wasn't deep enough.

Have a small gift card for Home Depot, guess maybe I should think about planting a few spring plants. I do have radishes and green onions in seed form but am not sure if they are going to make it. We just do not have enough sunny places in the house for them. Time will tell.

all 18 of my plant containers actually have sprouted. I am pretty jazzed. Just hope I can keep them alive until we can get them into the ground, which will be about another 4 or 5 weeks.

We are crossing one bridge at a time this year with the garden. I don’t think anything early now but do hope for hot weather crops to be in by mid May. Corn, beans, okra, tomatoes, & peppers.
