    • 1). Use a drill with a large drill bit to drill a hole in the bottom of a 5-gallon bucket. Your hole should be about 2 to 3 inches in diameter.

    • 2). Cut a piece of burlap that is about the size of the bottom of the bucket. Cut an "X" shape in the center of the piece of burlap. The burlap will keep the potting soil inside the bucket when it is hanging up, but will allow water to drain through it. The "X"-shaped cut is where the tomato plant will go through.

    • 3). Lift the bucket off the ground. Place the tomato plant inside the bucket and stick it through the burlap and the hole that you drilled, so that the plant is upside down. The green top of the plant should now be hanging out of the bottom of the bucket with the roots sticking up.

    • 4). Fill the bucket about three-quarters full with potting soil and water it thoroughly.

    • 5). Hang the planter by the bucket's metal handle.
