XL Pro Series Cage - Green is rated out of 5 by 17.Rated 5 out of 5 by SassyCat from Love these cages! First purchased tomato cages I ever liked let alone loved! I need the extenders in the south; I start a lot of indeterminate tomatoes from seed. Most of the varieties I grow get very tall in our long growing season. I can not tell you how many cages I have made over the years from rolls of fencing wire, the tallest I could find. None were as sturdy as these. The wires that go into the ground are longer are stronger. The square design is much better when the plants get huge and heavy. Have not had one cage go down in the wind and rain storms. Have not had to drive stakes to attach to the cages either. I can move them easily after the season is over so the tomato beds can be rotated as needed. They fold for storage. So far no rust and I have had the first of these for several years. Easy to pick the tomatoes because the squares are a good size and it is also easy to weed inside the cage. I buy a set or two of these each year and they are well worth the money.Date published: 2014-10-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Tomatomaster from Awesome cages The first cages that could contain my jumbo tomato plants. I'm glad I got the extenders.Date published: 2014-09-21Rated 5 out of 5 by cableknitter from Tomato Cage Last year I ordered 6 of the extra large cages; this year I ordered an additional 3. I wish I had purchased them 10 years ago. They are very sturdy and do a wonderful job supporting my tomatoes. I no longer have to worry about staking the old circular cages only to watch them topple with the weight of the tomatoes or in high winds.Date published: 2014-09-17Rated 5 out of 5 by AgTeacher from Very sturdy square design Larger square design and heavier construction material make these cages sturdier than the locally available round cages that can topple under a heavy plant and wind. Especially like the way these fold for storage. More expensive, but well worth the investment. I'll buy more next year.Date published: 2014-07-09Rated 5 out of 5 by Chad from Best Cages I Ever Owned I had these cages for several seasons before they were stolen from my shed... I'm sure the thieves will get many more years of use out of them, they are built to last!Date published: 2014-05-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Snowyval from Best cages yet! I love these tomato cages. Best I have found yet, and have been slowly replacing my old cages for the past 3 years. I have found I do not need the the extenders on the XL Pro series. FYI: I usually plant around 40 tomato plants of varied types, with most growing to 6-8 ft tallDate published: 2013-11-09Rated 4 out of 5 by Bushrod from Useful Cages These cages are well constructed and with the extenders, I find them very useful for my better boys and pole beans. I simply attach the extenders with zip ties, which I find a lot faster and simpler than using the enclosed hardware. I have not use these with monster 8' tomato plants, but I feel those concerned about purchasing these cages will find them very useful in their gardens for many years,, I would purchase them again.Date published: 2013-08-11Rated 5 out of 5 by Norma from Best cages I've ever seen These are far sturdier than anything else I've seen. I ordered them for my young blueberry plants; my chickens have taken a special liking to the leaves. The holes are too big to keep chickens out, but I knew that when I ordered them. I wrapped the cages in bird netting, leaving a slit on one side so that I can tend the plants easily. They work very well for my purpose. The blueberry plants have plenty of room to grow, and the chickens are at bay. I have seven blueberry plants, so I ordered three boxes for a total of nine cages. I'm using the two extra cages for tomatoes. Given that I prefer a smaller tomato, Romas, I planted a tomato plant a few inches outside of each side of the cage, so that each cage supports four Roma plants that are appropriately spaced. (The chickens don't go into that part of the garden, so the exposure isn't a problem.) I hated spending the money. But I hate more the fact that I've bought so many worthless cages over the years and wasted money that way. My father used to say that a poor man isn't poor because he buys things but because he replaces things. I don't think I'll ever have to replace these cages.They're that good.Date published: 2013-05-18
