Exclusive | Pop-Up Tomato Plant Protector Serves as a Mini Greenhouse to Accelerate Growth — Plants Grow 25% Faster!

  • Get the first ripe tomatoes in your neighborhood!
  • Creates a warm, protected environment for transplants
  • Set plants out in the garden weeks earlier
  • Accelerates growth by 25% or more
  • Pops open for simple, hassle-free set up; flattens for storage
  • Zippered mesh top lets you control ventilation

Watch: Pop-Up Tomato Accelerator  

Mini-growhouse protects tomato transplants from cold temperatures and chilly winds, so you can set plants out in the garden weeks earlier. You’ll be amazed at how much faster plants grow — which means an earlier harvest of your first juicy fruits! Set it up in seconds: Release the toggles and it pops open, ready to place over plants. We made it extra large ​— 18" in diameter and 28" high — so you can leave it in place to protect plants longer. The top is made from mesh to allow warm air to escape, preventing overheating, and it also lets water in. When the weather warms up, you can unzip the top and leave it open for even better ventilation. Also good for peppers, eggplants and other heat-loving plants. Made from durable, reinforced greenhouse fabric. Flattens for easy off-season storage.

Wouldn't plant without them!

      Comments about : Pop-Up Tomato Accelerator:

      I live in an area where one day it can be 90 degrees and sunny and the next 50 degrees with 30 mile and hour winds. When anchored well, these plant protectors/accelerators do the job! When I plant my tomatoes or peppers I anchor them inside with three lawn staples, and three lawn staples on the outside. I then use my tomato ladders or pepper ladders on the close to the exterior to stabilize them from wind gusts so they stay put. (I don't put my tomato ladders over the plants until the weather is warm enough for my plants to make it on their own.I have been using these for two years now and they are holding up well. I was skeptical as far as wind protection, but they were still standing after some pretty fierce weather. Love the zip option for protection during frost but wish there were some way to anchor the top when it is not zipped so it doesn't come in contact with the plants.

          Living where I do, I always worry about setting plants out too early in the season. Now I can set them out and protect them from elements and small critters who want to sample the plants.

            These protected my tomatoes from wind, but we had a late frost last night...although the thermometer never registered below 34, there was frost on the tops of the accelerators. They did not protect the tomatoes and I lost them all!

            Too wide for me. I'm returning them

            I ordered a bunch of these, but unfortunately, they are too wide. In the past, my raised beds were 4' wide, but with a smaller yard, I made them 3' wide. I can't put two of these next to each other. :-( It's not going to work for me. If you have the room, they will probably be perfect.

            Killed my tomatoes

                Comments about : Pop-Up Tomato Accelerator:

                Apparently you have to sift through the reviews to find out that these do not, in fact, protect against frost. All 6 of my tomatoes were killed after a frost the other night. I relied on these tents, as the description clearly states they are frost protection. In the morning my tomatoes were brown and wilted, beyond saving. Very disappointed & a waste of money.

                • Allows for early planting
                • Easy to set up

                • Tomatoes

                Comments about : Pop-Up Tomato Accelerator:

                These have allowed me to plant my tomatoes early, which I love. However, I have had one small problem... our springs are very windy. I bought the deep stakes so that I can secure these down, but they are not enough. The loops for securing the cages allow for quite a bit of movement when it's windy.
                The stakes keep the shelters in place but actually lift up when it's windy enough, allowing all of the hot air to escape. So...I will have to fashion some way to keep the bases secured to the soil all the way around. Other than that, they're fantastic, and I really like the fact you can zip the top, which has protected my tomatoes from hail.

                  Comments about : Pop-Up Tomato Accelerator:

                  I used these for the first time in Iowa on my tomatoes. Got them planted the first of April and already have blossoms on them. Almost unheard of this time of year in Iowa.
                  Great protection from harsh winds, last nights frost(may 3rd) and critters. My tomatoes are almost to the top of these pop ups!
