      I was able to start some herbs outdoors much earlier than I have in the past. I will purchase more of the pop up accelerators for future gardening. Sturdy and reusable.

      good idea, but pay attention when using

      By morgaineotm

      from Sedona, AZ

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • convenient
      • easy to use
      • light weight

      Cons

      • too light in high winds

      Best Uses

        Comments about : Pop Up Cuke and Squash Accelerator:

        This is a lower version of the tomato accelerator; same diameter, just lower in height. which means it has the same problems. Its light weight will allow it to be picked up by the wind and just pull out any earth staples when the top is zippered closed. At the same time, with the top open, the plants within are protected from winds and the intense southwest sun. The soil does not dry out as quickly either with these in use, even when opened. There is a limit to its temperature protection, low 30's allowed the top leaves of the squash plants to get damaged and the plants were only up to 4 leaves or so, still small. For extra protection, put a row shelter over two of these with a board over that for holding it all down after finding all the above across the yard after some gusty winds last night.

        By Marion5772

        from Placerville, Ca.

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Great For Winter Veggies
        • Keeps Out Pests
        • Lets The Rain In
        • Protects Plants

        Cons

        • Can Blow Over In Wind

        Best Uses

        • Protection

        Comments about : Pop Up Cuke and Squash Accelerator:

        I place these over summer produce when I want to prolong the harvest, like bell peppers and eggplant. I also use them for new starts of kale and lettuce that are in the ground now for winter harvest. It keeps out the squirrels and rabbits that get under the fence. And though I have a high fence protects plants from the occasional deer that jump in. I wish it had larger holes to allow stakes to hole them down. When I am done using them I can fold them flat to store which is a nice feature.

        By J the organic gardener

        from Oregon

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Early Start On Gardening
        • Extends Plant-life
        • First Artichokes In 27 Yr
        • Pegs To Keep Upright
        • Small For More Planting

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Artichoke Early Plants
          • Cukes Early Plant
          • Protection From Moths

          Comments about : Pop Up Cuke and Squash Accelerator:

          I am VERY excited to have my FIRST artichoke in 27 years. Never before have I been able to produce any artichokes because the growing season was not long enough. Using the Accelerator has meant that we will have fresh artichokes from the garden.
          My burpless cukes have also done the best this years than ever before. I took the Accelerator off of my 2 plants in early July and have a bumper crop.

          cuke is good for peppers as well

          By CJ

          from Hulett, Wyoming

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Warms

          Cons

          • Zipper Sometimes Hard

          Best Uses

          • Sweet Peppers

          Comments about : Pop Up Cuke and Squash Accelerator:

          In our area, cool mornings and nights can frost or stunt our sweet peppers. This protects and warms the plants, especially when placed inside an old tire. It fits perfectly inside. The tire warms, and the accelerator holds the heat as well.

          Inspired the tomato, zucchini and cucumber plants to grow faster. Similar to a mini hothouse.
