topsy turvy - Knowledgebase Question

I recently bought a topsy turvy herb and tomato, but it is not doing very well. All of the herbs are dying, and now the tomato is starting to wilt. I have been watering it regularly, and it gets plenty of sun. I put some fertilizer on, and I let it go two days with out water in case there was to much (it drizzled one of the days). I'm not sure what I am doing wrong.

It's not unusual for newly transplanted herbs and veggies to go through a little transplant shock. The stressed plants often look wilted and unhappy even though the soil is nice and moist. I think I'd move the planter out of direct sunshine for a few days. When the plants begin to perk up you can move them back into the sunshine. Hope this does the trick.
