Additional Information

NEW & Exclusive | Fabric Plant Protector for Tomato Cages and Towers

  • Give tomatoes a head start in spring!
  • Protect young plants from damaging winds and harsh weather
  • Speed growth for an earlier harvest
  • Designed for use with our Tomato Cages and Tomato Towers, sold separately

Tomatoes are sensitive to chilly weather, which can damage plants and stunt their growth. Use these lightweight fabric sleeves to provide early-season protection from cold, wind and harsh sun. Simply slide the fabric sleeves over your Tomato Cages, or the bottom tier of your Tomato Towers, and then tie them in place with the fabric tabs. Once the temperatures warm up, remove the sleeves. Important: The Weather Defenders do not protect against frost. Be sure to add additional protection when a frost is predicted.

      These were the best thing AT FIRST for about 1 month. They have literally disintegrated before your eyes. They make an absolute mess in your garden when they start disintegrating where you can't touch them without them falling apart to almost powder. My garden is littered along with my yard full of bits & pieces of cover. Same thing happened with the pepper covers they are no different just a smaller mess.

      They worked well enough but when I took them off, they practically disintegrated in my hands. The scraps are all over my yard. I probably wouldn't buy them again.

      The cover itself is a great protector, it keeps the wind out and additional heat in and the plants do well with them. The disappointmenting part is the straps that attach the cover to the cage. One strap broke right away as I was tying it to the cage. When it was time to remove the cover and untie the straps, they literally feel apart. I will now have to use clothes pins for next season to reuse the covers. This could be a great product if they remake the straps with a stronger material. Also, it's was confusing placing the order as it discribes it in away you think the cages come with the order, and they do not.

      Shoddy fabric

      By Liz the Tomato Queen

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about Tomato Cage and Tower Weather Defenders, Set of 4:

      Wow, I am shocked that Gardener's Supply carries this product. The fabric is not much different than a thick paper towel. I used these to protect young tomato plants in my garden for about a month, and when untying to remove from the tomato cages, EVERY single tie tore off. As a seamstress, I will purchase bias tape and restore on my own, but I now have no confidence in the covers themselves as they are made of the same fabric. I may simply use these as templates to make my own...using canvas or something similar. Very disappointed.

          I have a garden of raised beds but also grow bags in wire baskets and other planters. Tomatoes and peppers are placed throughout my garden both in the raised beds and grow bags and I also use 3 different types of supports depending on what variety of tomato I'm growing. My problem was I had nothing easy to use to protect my singular tomatoes. In the past I would cut a section of the cloth covers but when a storm is coming and the wind is crazy I spent more time fighting the blowing cover. Then I saw these and wow! I love them! They fit over the square supports and the tall cone shaped ones too. Now the ties are too short but I suspected that when I bought them. So, I use the wooden clothes pins. They allow for a custom , snug fit and will withstand windy conditions. They also dry very quickly and help keep warmth in. We just had a night of mid-forties night time temps down here in NC, and the tomatoes are doing great with these covers.

          Really excited about the tomato and bean towers. Such a great use of space. Cloth plant protectors were perfect to guard new plants against our strong winds this spring . I added the AFrame stand for my cucumber plants. They are just starting to attach and I'm determined to prune to keep them on the frame and out of my garden space!

              Just slide it over the tomato or pepper cage and it protects the plant from the wind while allowing the sun in. Easy to install and remove ..LOVE IT
