These super-strong vegetable supports have strong 7mm steel uprights and our exclusive "plant cradle" crosspieces that give multiple places for stems to rest. Use them to support eggplants, peppers and bush varieties of beans and cucumbers to prevent plants from toppling and keep ripening fruit off the ground. These are the sturdiest ladders you can buy — 20% thicker than others on the market — with a long-lasting, weatherproof powder coating. These supports will make the most of your garden space, reduce damage from pests and diseases, and give you a bigger harvest of delicious, unblemished fruit. Ladders nest for compact off-season storage.
