Uses for round tomato cages

  • Subject: [cg] Uses for round tomato cages

Regarding Jon Rowley's question about creative uses for tomato 
cages, I like to use them in the winter to encircle newly planted 
small trees or shrubs.  The cages make it easier to encircle the 
cages with burlap prevent winter burn on evergreens or with chicken 
wire (or poultry wire) to deter chewing rodents or deer.  In the 
Spring, one can either remove and reuse the cages in the garden or 
keep just the cages in place for future use.  In addition, the cages 
add support for new trees.
