There are 12 slots in the topsy-turvy planter. I planted 10 tomatoes: one at the bottom and then nine on the side. I also planted an oregano and mint seedlings on the side of the planter. (I just hope the planter is sturdy enough to hold the tomatoes when they all hopefully bloom!)
The tough part with the topsy-turvy is putting them together. If you're kind of clumsy like me, there's no easy way to put the seedling on the side and bottom part (make sure you remove the plastic stopper), fill the planter with soil while it's hanging (expect to have soil splattering on your shirt and face), and make sure you hang the planter where you want it to be because it'll be very heavy to move it to its final destination.
But once you get the hang of it, it's quite an accomplishment to brag about :)
