What's the Better Tomato Support:
Ladders or Cages?

Ladders

Cindy Goodenow, Vegetable Gardening Merchant, prefers Tomato Ladders.

"I have a small garden in my front yard. With ladders I can get more plants in a small space. They keep my garden looking tidy, too!"

Cages

Kathy LaLiberte, Director of Gardening, trusts Tomato Cages.

"I set the cages up when I plant in May and come back when it's time to start picking. The plants are well-supported and I don't need to bother with pruning or tying."
