1. You will require a place to hang your upsidedown tomato about midway through preparing the bucket, so it’s smart to have that place ready before getting started. Once it’s filled with soil, your upside-down planter is going to be very heavy, so be sure to choose a location that is sturdy and can hold the weight.


2. Drill a hole in the bottom of the bucket with a 2” drill bit.


3. Use scissors to cut a piece of coir lining into a 5”circle. Cut a slit in the center. This will hold the plant in place until it grows roots and will prevent soil from falling out the hole in the bucket.


4. Turn the bucket over and gently push the seedling’s root ball through the hole as if to plant it.


5. Turn the bucket over so that the inside is facing right side up again while holding the plant in place. Holding the piece of coir, open the slit and wrap it around the stem of the seedling. Close the slit. This should grip the tomato stem and hold it in place inside the bucket.


6. Hang the bucket and fill it with potting soil.


7. Plant the top with basil or another shallow-rooted herb. Planting the top keeps the soil cool and looks pretty too.
