Tomato Cages Aren't Just for Tomatoes

Use tomato cages in flower pots to hold up plants that like to grow leggy and need extra support.

Very good. Also can use the smaller ones for flowers, like glads.
I use them to keep my chickens from tearing down my flowers..

You will need those fences when you have chickens, unless you have them their own chicken run. My Abigail loves to stay right under me when I'm pulling weeds so she can get all the bugs and worms I uncover. I'm afraid I'm going to hurt her.
We have used tomatoe cages for years for plant protectors...

I use the small tomato cages for freesias in the garden. Works great!
