Support Your Plants with the Ultimate Plant Cage [Review]

I tend to have two experiences with plants: they wilt and die or they grow like crazy and I have to support them. I have always had difficulties finding the right support structure for my plants. When I discovered Global Garden Friends' Ultimate Plant Cage, I knew that this was the right solution for my problem. Not only does the Ultimate Plant Cage provide the right fully-adjustable support, but the Ultimate Plant Clips allow me to easily gather and secure foliage and vines.

The Good
The Not So Good
Easy installation
Harder to install on growing/grown plants
Fully adjustable

Great support structure for any type of plant

The Ultimate Plant Cage was very easy to install. The box came with the following:

I needed to stake my tomato plant. Even though the plant was already grown, I could still add the base to it.  I recommend doing a trial run of putting the base together because it will be easier once you add it to the grown plant. (Please ignore the munched plant, deer must like tomato plants)

I used the Ultimate Plant Clips to secure the tomato branches to the Ultimate Plant Cage. Since I only have half of a tomato plant left, I used 2 poles. The best part about the poles is that I can adjust the angle and the length. As the tomato plant grows, I will be able to extend the pole to keep providing support.

I used these little clips to attach the plant to the poles. They clips were very easy to attach and allow enough room for the stem to grow. I like that the Ultimate Plant Clips do not suffocate the stem by being too tight.

I am very happy with the Ultimate Plant Cage and ClipsI love that the colors blend in with the plants. I have one Ultimate Plant Cage installed in the pot (above) and I hope to install another one in the garden.  If you are looking for a support structure for any of your indoor or outdoor plants, I would highly recommend these two products. 

Disclosure: I received the sample from the company in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. I am under no pressure to return the product to the company or to write this review. This product review is based on my personal experiences. This review is objective and completely honest.

I am in desperate need of tomato cages! I like that these have extending poles--I need something that will grow with my plants.
