Makes watering easy
from Pt Townsend WA
Comments about : Tomato Halos, Set of 3:
The only downsides are that since it doesn't open up in any way you have to be very careful when sliding larger mature plants through the center hole. Since its designed for a specific configuration of cage I found I had to bend the spokes of my standard cage to fit it into the slots,
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Sturdy great dea
from New Hope Pa
Placed them in my grow bags between the supports. Added extra room. So far great!
from Boise, Idaho
Great for the tomato plants to keep them watered in the early part of the growing season. I loved them so much i bought more for next season.

My mother purchased these three years ago. I just purchased mine. She loves them and I think I will too.
Great for peppers.. Red ones are great for tomatoes!
My mother is a master gardener.. she loves these things.. asks for them for birthdays and whatever.. gave her several of each color for Mothers Day and she has been using them and said that these green ones keep the peppers happier as it keeps their roots cool and the red ones help keep mud off the tomatoes which makes this go nuts.. both of them work great.. we were getting tons of both Bell peppers and tomatoes from the ones that had these rings.. and anywhere she planted one without a ring (as we tested this) the plants were not as prolific... super item!

Fist time use and I found it a definite improvement from last year by just planting tomatoes in the soil. I have a raised bed and the added depth of soil helps. Plus the trees fit right into the halos.
Water is directed to the roots
from Klamath Falls, OR
Water needs to be directed to the roots and not on the surface. Using halos, allows a container holding water and four spouts whereby water is directed to the root system.
Preserves water, place fertilizerr, block weeds

First time user of these specific units, but have used plastic irrigation rings before with success. These halos are quite sturdy and should last many years.
Very beneficial for the tomatoes.
The rings work well, also side benefit is companion planted beets are growing better than same beets planted elsewhere in the garden. They were planted the same day.
Mixed feelings.. Good concept but .....
from Philadelphia suburbs
The water drains from the outer reservoir very very slowly if at all. Tomatoes are planted in the ground. Spent significant effort amending the soil under the halos even deeper and wider than in the instructions so I'd have good drainage .... used about 2/3rds lobster compost mix and 1/3rd existing soil. Holes aren't plugged, so unclear why drainage is so poor. Too early for Tomato roots to interfere with the holes. Using stacking tomato ladders ... time will tell as not all that secure as others noted. Now that I have flowers but no tomato set yet, fertilizing inner ring with liquid fertilizer containing calcium. Seems halo design once flowers start is much more suitable to using liquid fertilizer in the inner ring than using slow release granules that may burn the plants.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
