Gardener’s Blue Ribbon® Ultomato™ Tomato Plant Cage They start out small, but tomato plants can become large and unruly without a little guidance and direction. Provide that tomato plant the support it needs--throughout the life of the plant--with this Gardener's Blue Ribbon® Ultomato™ Tomato Plant Cage. 5-Foot Stakes This Ultomato™ system features three 5-foot sturdy stakes made of durable steel for reliable strength. Unlike the silver color of traditional metal cages, the stakes feature a thick, heavy-duty plastic coating in a deep green, which allows them to blend in with surrounding plants and decor. Snap-On Arms In addition to the three stakes, this patented Ultomato system provides nine arms (in matching green) that easily snap securely onto the stakes to complete the framework of the cage. Place them at equal heights for a three-tiered effect, or stagger them for more of a spiral-staircase style. Not only do the arms allow you to place them exactly where you want, but you don't have to worry about them coming apart as with old standard metal cages. Placement of the arms can be fine-tuned as the plant grows. Add more over time or move a bottom arm further up as needed. Sets Up in Seconds This Ultomato™ system takes minimal time and effort to set up--no tools needed. Build the plant cage around seedlings or a small starter plant so it's ready when the plant begins to grow. The cage can also be installed around an already-over-achieving plant, with minimal stress on the plant. Adding a traditional metal cage to a mature tomato plant requires pulling, bending, and maneuvering plant stems into place. This can cause plant breakage and fruit to fall off prematurely. This Ultomato™ system allows you to build the cage around the plant, offering the flexibility needed to add support without putting strain on the plant. Simply insert the stakes into the ground in a circle and at a distance equal to the length of the arms, attach the arms, and it's ready to go.
