Staking Tomatoes - Veggie Cage

Tree Branch

For the biggest and best tomatoes, it is important to stake tomato plants. Staking plants, helps them to grow strong and healthy. It keeps tomatoes, from resting...and rotting... on the ground. And, it reduces access to slugs, snails and other insect pests.

While staking tomatoes takes a little effort, you will be well rewarded.

To help minimize the work, try veggie cages. They are easy to set up and take down, and they store in almost no space.

Space constrained!? No problem. The Veggie Cage is a great way to practice  vertical gardening, utilizing little garden space. Try this cage in a large pot on your balcony or deck, too.

As your plant grows, the veggie cage all but disappears behind the foliage. 

Veggie Rings, or Tomato Rings are a great way to support a wide variety of both vegetable and flowering plants. Formally called "Tomato Rings", this is a misnomer. Use them to support almost any plant. Try them on tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and more.
