Exactly What I Needed

By FolkFairy

from Santa Rosa Beach, FL

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Sturdy

Cons

    Best Uses

      I had been using cardboard boxes to keep my the grass from rotting my watermelon. My sister showed me this product on your site so I quickly purchased. It elevated the melon so it was no longer in the grass while allowing air to move beneath it. I was very impressed with the quantity I received for the price. I am very pleased!

            This is the first year we used these crad;es and they worked great. The only melon we had problems with was one that we missed putting onto the cradle!

                      I wish I had discovered this! Always had the issue of rotten melons on the side touching the ground and was constantly turning them to avoid. this usually broke the plant of the vine etc.... Great product

                      • Easy to find
                      • Keeps Vines In Line

                      Using them for my cantaloupes and small pumpkins.

                      You can adjust the height that you want your plants to be off the ground. The design allows for airflow that results in even ripening and prevents soft spots that appear when left on the ground.

                      The flow through design doesn't allow for puddling of water when a rain occurs.

                          Best Uses

                            my melon/squash cradles seem to be just the thing for keeping my melons/squash off the ground...they have slots in the bottom to let water run off and to let air circulate...for me (with poor eyesight), having my melon/squash a bit off the ground makes them easier to see in garden (the pegs on the bottoms of the cradles allow me to adjust the depth to which I put them in the ground)..they are durable for several years, making the price well worth it
