Default Tomato cages ( was Best place to buy tomato plants, etc.)

I resorted to REMESH ( a concrete reinforcement) for big openings. It
wasn't too bad a price either. Its major drawback was it rusts and can get
on your hands. If you can get big opening fencing then go for it.

You need openings of around 6" to be able to reach in and grab the

as they ripen. The Lowes fencing material has much smaller openings.

looking for fencing with about 6" openings. Any ideas?

The tomato cages at Natural Gardener are about $26.00 each. Nice but

Thank you, Victor, for introducing a topic I was wondering about. I
bought those round tomato cages last year and my tomato plants were a
little too robust for them. What do the NG cages look like?


You can buy a roll of fencing wire and make your own pretty easily. I
even saw the guy on the new Victory Garden pull it off. You can get
4' or 5' and make them as large (diameter-wise) as you wish. I think
the lowe's depots of the world have fairly small rolls pretty cheap,
but if not I'm sure you could get them at callahans.
