Description

  • Super-sturdy cages keep your tallest tomato plants upright for a bigger, cleaner harvest
  • Big, 8" square openings make harvesting easy
  • Hinged panels fold flat for compact storage
  • Choice of Red, Green or Steel Gray
  • Set of 2

You asked us for taller tomato cages and here they are! Our heavy-duty, steel Tomato Towers are much taller and stronger than old-fashioned cone-shaped supports, ready to support your biggest indeterminate tomato plants. The towers support plants on all sides (no tying needed) and keep plants up off the ground for better air circulation, cleaner fruit and fewer diseases. Large openings make harvesting easy, and the towers fold flat for off-season storage. 53" high installed. In windy locations, we recommend anchoring these towers with our Extra-Tall Earth Staples, sold separately.

Specifications

  • Steel Gray is galvanized steel; Red and Green are powder-coated steel
  • 14-1/4" square x 65" H including 11" legs
  • 53" H installed
  • 8" square openings
  • Sturdy 10 gauge wire
  • Easy, no-tools assembly
  • Cages fold for off-season storage
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

Comments about Tomato Towers, Set of 2:

Overall, very good product. Having a stainless steel base would be better, though; as is, they will rot faster over time. I cut off each of the 8 legs on the bottom of the tower and bent one end of the severed legs to make them into "stakes." I then drove the 8 spikes into the ground, slightly angled. Even with lush growth (after pruning, that is), the cages were rock solid. If the cages were manufactured this way (using a "stake" setup, as opposed to "fixed" legs), this would be the best cage you could buy.

    These work really well for tomatoes - good support and easy to store. They are attractive too. I had four and I just bought two more. These last two will support my snap peas until it is time for more tomatoes

      These are great for tomatoes, but I ordered extras for use in trellising peas, cucmbers, and anything else that needs a stable, compact space to grow upward which is a must in my small garden.

        Comments about Tomato Towers, Set of 2:

        Tomato Towers are an improvement over the older version. While both more than adequately allowed tomatoes to grow vertically, the increased height and narrower horizontal cross section allowed the a tomato plant to grow higher and with more support making a healthier and more productive plant. In addition, I found if I spaced the towers two feet apart I could span 3' bamboo poles between the towers to create a tomato "wall" in my garden. The red color is a nice aesthetic as well as functional addition with the red predicting the ripening of the tomatoes to come and the color allowing one to easily work with the cage system since it was so easy to visually separate from the surrounding plant foliage.

            I bought 2 of these last year and 2 more this year. I am gardening vertically and densly to keep the deer out. These are tall enough to keep the deer from eating the top layers off tomato plants. I used them for pole beans this year too. Wish I had had more for my climbing peas. The coatings make them look far better than rusty traditional tomato cages. They stay upright better than tapered, round tomato cages. They separate and fold flat for compact storage in my small shed.

                  Used these towers for spring peas and now growing black eyed peas on them and also growing tomatillos on them. I purchased 8 so far and I will be getting more for my tall tomatoes for next year. It seems the colored ones wire don't feel like the same quality gauge as the silver ones. But they still do the job just fine for me so far. Keeping that tomatillo from sprawling all over the place! One other thing I really like is they stay anchored in the ground very well. Had some high winds in the spring and they didn't budge

                  Really like the tomato cages. Very easy to put together but actually my tomatoes seems to get taller each year, My 10' poles are now inside holding up the branches SO I could use cases that are taller. The cages are study and didn't have to do any addt'l staking except for the poles to hold up the plants. Bought the red ones so that I cd see if any little branches were going 'outside the cage' and cd be tucked back inside. I like these alot better than the round cages that I am slowly replacing.

                  Previously purchased 2 of these. Despite the fact that a joint came unhinged the first time I stuck one of them in a raised bed, I purchased 2 more because of the hard to find height. Rutgers and Brandywine tomatoes need the extra height. Did stake the towers, and they held up in the strong mountain winds and rain.

                  How-To

                  • Learn how to plan, plant and tend your own super-productive, raised-bed vegetable garden.
                  • Clever ideas for supporting tomato vines
                  • Learn the best way to start your own tomato seedlings. Quick to germinate and grow, tomato seeds are best sown indoors about six weeks before your average last frost date.
                  • Tomatoes are consistently the most popular vegetable in American gardens. But for most gardeners, just any old tomato won't do.
                  • Learn how to repot your tomato seedlings when they've grown too large for the original pot.
                  • Left on their own, tomatoes will grow into shrubby, multi-stemmed plants that topple under the weight of their fruit. Proper pruning will help prevent this problem.
