Grow plants straight and tall, taking up much less space.
Just weave the stems up through the grid on these sturdy, heavy grade, galvanized steel towers as they grow. Improves air circulation and ease of harvest. Best suited for the classic, indeterminate or vining types. Easy to store. 6.5" (w) x 6.5" (d) x 51" (h)

Not sturdyI tried these last summer for my tomatoes. They just weren't sturdy enough to support my plants. I had to use, six foot, wooden stakes to stabilize the towers.

Worthless tomato towersThese are about 4' tall when you take into account the amount that gets pushed into the ground.
Also, the spikes that you push into the ground are too short and too close together to brace and stabilize these "towers", especially once you start tying the plant up to them.
If you have good loose soil or sandy soil, these will blow over in the first wind that comes along, assuming the plant doesn't pull it down by itself. If your soil is hard enough to keep the thin wire "stakes" from pulling loose, you need to work on improving your soil because your tomatoes aren't going to be happy anyway!
The stake I used for my one determinate plant started pulling out of the ground and falling over after about one month of growth - the plant was maybe halfway up the stake by then. I had to use the entire pack of 3 to form a "pyramid" to stabilize the one I had actually stuck in the ground. $35 to stake up ONE tomato seems a bit steep to me.
I'm getting fence posts instead - the common T-posts used on farms for wire fencing. You can drive those into the ground and they will last forever, and tie up the tallest indeterminate vines to them.
These - I will probably be using them to prop up eggplants next year. Normally I could accomplish that with a few cheap garden stakes, but I might as well find SOME use for these.
I would not buy these again.

My Tomatoes Were Towering for SureI could not believe how well my tomatoes were supported by this tower and how tall they grew. I've had my towers for 2 growing seasons, and they have held up well. When my neighbors viewed my garden, they had to ask what the tomato plants were because they couldn't believe tomatoes could grow so tall. Definitely beats a traditional cage.

I'm Impressed!!!I would take these over the cages if you have a lot of tomato plants or you have a small garden. At first when I look at it I was skeptical on how this was really going to save me space. Then the tomato plants grew bigger and I realized how much they would've taken over if i were to get the cages. they are sturdier than the cages too.
