Rita,

How well are those towers holding up for you?

Well, they are not very big but this is the third year I am using them. They work perfect for those patio tomatoes as the plants don't get very tall.

These are actually pepper supports which I use for peppers, eggplants and really short tomatoes in pots. I do like them for what I use them for.

They are sturdy and a coated metal. So they don't rust. I put them in the garage for the winter so they should last for many years.

Have you had any trouble with the coating oxidizing to where the coloring comes off? I have some supports that left the messiest stains on my gloves. I mean I HAD some supports that left stains. Whistling Smiling

No, no such problems with these.
