Teepees Jump-Start Your Tomato Growing Season

  • Teepees protect young plants from chilly temperatures so you can set plants out earlier in spring
  • Ideal for tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and other frost-tender crops
  • Reusable teepees have separate channels; won't deflate if one tube is punctured
  • Set of 3

With these protective cones, you can plant tomatoes outdoors up to 6 weeks earlier, and be harvesting by early July! The water-filled teepees regulate temperature, soaking up heat during the day and releasing it at night. Without the stress of weather extremes, plants can put their energy into producing fruit.

  • Made of thick UV-protected plastic
  • 18" H each

Comments about Red Tomato Teepees, Set of 3:

Bending over to fill all the channels with water was tough on my bad back. Found them awkward to put in place over my tomato plants without squashing them; another pair of hands helped. Used at least one stake in each to keep them from collapsing in. One fell over in the storm on my plant but plant survived! That one is now staked too. Plants seem to be doing well with them. Using them with the red mulch too. I am curious to see how much quicker the tomatoes grow.

    Comments about Red Tomato Teepees, Set of 3:

    I bought 15 of these and it took the filling of about 3 before I really got the hang of filling them up. (used my "jet" feature on my hose attachment and since I have low water pressure, it worked great). After having my plants in the teepees for 4 weeks, I would say my plants are about 4 times the size if I had simply put them in a cold frame. I would definitely recommend them. I'm in Zone 6a and have had them in the ground since May 2nd and they have just flourished.

        I had used something similar years ago that were green, but these red Tomato Tepees are far more superior! We live in a very windy area and have had a cool spring, but the tomatoes that have the tepees are double the size of those that don't have tepees!

            Actually, I can return only one of the packages I ordered, because I opened and attempted to use the other. These are not like the Walls o Water that I now can't find. They are inflexible, hard to fill and keep filled, and the image of holding the filled teepee and placing it over the plant is not realistic. I wish they had worked!

              I like to grow some tomatoes and peppers. Its been cold here in Michigan the last few years and these teepees help warm things up for my plants. I think its a good idea.

                These allow you to get your indoor started plants like tomato and pepper plans outdoors sooner with the added protection from frost, etc. They also help in helping to speed up the plants growth.

                  I have used these for years and bought more as it protects my tomato and pepper plants I start indoors. Able to put them out earlier in the garden well protected and speeds up their growth as well. I'm sold on this product.

                      I planted 6 tomato plants in my garden at the beach (planted them leaving about 6 inches above the ground.) I had ordered one sleeve for each plant. Last week I filled two sleeves and placed them around 2 of the plants. It was a royal pain to fill these. It was getting dark and I needed to drive back home so I did not put any sleeves on the other 4 plants. This weekend I basically forgot about them until a neighbor asked me what the red things in the garden where. The four plants without the sleeve had normal growth for this time of year about 2-3 inches and some leaf growth. The 2 with the sleeve tripled in size, had so many leaves that they where touching all sides of the sleeve and where about 18 inches high. I could not believe the difference! I immediately went and got the other 4 sleeves and put them around the rest of the plants! I'm giving this 5 stars even though they are a pain to fill because of how great they are.

                          I decided that the teepees were probably better used on more tropical or hot-house type vegetables this year, so I put them over my peppers. I only had one left, so I did a little experiment. I planted 2 eggplant in pots, and put the teepee over one of them. The one with the teepee was about twice the size of the one without when I last checked.

                          Seems of thick durable plastic. I put a 5 gal. bucket over the plant and then the teepee over the bucket to fill. Piece of cake. I will be buying another set for myself, as well as others for gifts.
