Rated 4 out of 5Â by missinglynk A good product at a good price!
These are nice and tall and can be folded in a variety of ways (spread out for peas and beans, folded to cage tomatoes). They are sturdy enough because of the part that's underground and the shape. They fold flat to store so they don't take up much room in the shed. Reasonable, too. Wish I had bought more, and now the store has run out. Home Depot - hurry and stock some more!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by jkj92200 Tomato cage with many uses
I highly recommend this product as a tomato cage, I like it better than the round type of tomato cages. I also use this a temporary fencing to keep my dog out of my garden. It keep my Doberman Pincher out while it lets my Yorkshire Terrier in...and out too. She hate the area the big dog uses to do his business, but she also won't go potty out in the back either. She just wants to lay on the sweet, shaded grass and watch me garden! I use 4 ft stake and ties to keep it in place. I can move them around the yard also to block off certain areas that need lawn repair so our big Doberman Pinscher can't tear up the grass seed before its even had a chance to take root. Its the quickest and easiest way i could think of to get the jobs done. Then when gardening season ends I can easily fold and store them in my shed.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by cldlka Not as Sturdy as i needed
I did a lot of research on different cage types and this one seemed like a great option during the growing season and then for off-season storage.
For the first three months as my tomato plants thrived it was excellent. I ran into the issue when my tomato plant grew too heartily.
The weight of my tomatoes was too much for this device to hold. I went out one morning and the pressure from the plant grew too much and the plastic rungs of the tower collapsed and my tomato plant crumbled to the ground.
I lost 2/3s of my plant because the weight of the falling plants broke or were fractured.
I just hope that what's left of the plant is able to rebound.
I kept the tower in place but i had to reinforce the rungs to the vertical poles with wire.
I think next year i may get the more traditional wire cone as it seems quite sturdy and able to hold considerably more weight.

this is the best cage i've ever found. works great and a delight to store for the most of the year when you aren't using it. could be just a bit heavier gauge steel but still works very well.

My tomato plants are of the indeterminate variety and they get heavy. I returned these cages before I even used them because of the light weight.
