Veggie Cage is offering the smart tomato cage which was initially designed and fabricated by the company's founders, Michel Paille and Robert Sanazaro, to be used in the extensive vegetable gardens of the Paille family. The tomato cage was the result of the couple's endeavors to find a simple, less time consuming way to grow tomatoes without the constant tying and retying of the plants to stakes and without relying on awkward metal cages. The tomato cage available from Veggie Cage has been devised as a simple green spiral which delivers outstanding support for the short and tall. The tomato cage becomes nearly invisible in the foliage of mature plants.
Co-founder, Robert Sanazaro, informs that the invisibility of the tomato cage has become an important factor for consumers as the trend in vegetable gardening has evolved from the merely functional to the pleasingly aesthetic. Veggie Cage has learned that many tomato cage users are mixing vegetables and flowers in the same bed to benefit from the repellant properties of certain flowers.
The tomato cage of Veggie Cage is great for ease of use as well as for the minimal space requirement for off-season storage.
Veggie Cage was established in 2003 and is based in St. Louis, Missouri and the innovative tomato cage was developed and manufactured with the focus on the creation of a product to make gardening even more rewarding. The tomato cage products obtainable from Veggie Cage have experienced a satisfying success among both the enthusiastic home growers and professional horticultural market growers. While still retaining the family business emphasis on friendly and responsive customer service Veggie Cage has grown and expanded.

The tomato cage measures 9" across and approximately 4" at the top, which gets progressively wider down to its 13" bottom, and the robust but flexible Veggie Cage product is designed to encase the main stems while supporting the branches.
Weighing a mere ľ lb the tomato cage stretches up to 7 feet so that even the tallest varieties of tomato plants will be contained. The Veggie Cage tomato cage design allows for the even distribution of the plant's weight and with weekly attention the tendrils can be guided to continue growing within the coils.
