My neighbors have....and so have several friends in other areas.

One friend has three...and two are doing great and one sort 'so-so' and they are being handled the same exact way. It could be your tomato plant.

I haven't tried it, but I've seen it on tv and thought about ordering it.
I'd be interested in reading what sort of luck others have had with it.

You can save yourself a bunch of money by making them yourselves, plus get an extra plant out of it. If you purchase the hanging pot with the coco bedding, just cut a hole in the bottom. Buy or grow a tomato seedling and put it in upside down (I usually use a little bit of bunched newspaper at the roots to make sure it doesn't fall out, and make sure to make your slit just big enough to get the plant inside), and the fill with topsoil. You can then plant another plant on the top. I prefer herbs, as they don't root too far and still look very nice. Just don't put any hot peppers, as they will make your tomatoes hot. You can reuse the hanging planter next year, and it is so much nicer to look at than the ones you see on TV.

Another possible alternative for deck grown tomatoes.
EarthBox - Homegrown Vegetables Without A Garden

Can be used for other veggies etc. We love ours and is very consistant and easy to use each year.

We got if for our old house which was very shaded. My wife has a small vegetable garden with tomatoes and uses the Earth Box on the deck because she loves it.
