This idea is great--easy to put together, fairly strong metal frame, etc. But, the flaws in production are discouraging. I've managed to combine the parts from two of the gardens to create one garden with only one defective part. Perhaps if I ordered a third I could have a garden with no defective parts. And by defective, I mean the parts won't actually snap together, or a welded joint arrives already broken. I don't know if it's being banged in shipping or if it's coming out of the factory with these flaws. My one defective part is one of two tubes that interconnect, but is flattened so they don't fit together. I've managed to pound it open so that the they can just barely connect, but it will need further working before the opening is unflattened enough to be sturdy. The black pockets that hold the plants are some type of felt, and they don't look like they're going to last long once they're wet. The plant pots sit inside them, so they are obviously meant to get wet, but they look very "temporary." I'm thankful for STP's return policy. If this garden proves to be as much trouble in the future as it has been in set-up, my one remaining garden will be returned.
