If you’re wondering exactly how Veggie Cage works or what you might need to purchase in order to prepare for using the heavy duty Veggie Cage in your vegetable or flower garden, keep reading.
Right out of the box, the Veggie Cage appears to be very flexible, even springy. Don’t let the flexibility of the Veggie Cage fool you. Its ingenious design works by holding up the plant side-to-side instead of up-and-down. If you were to slide your forearms up inside the Veggie Cage rings and press outward, you’d see how rigid the coils suddenly become. This is exactly how it works to support the veggies in your garden.
The main branches of the plant lean out against the inside of the rings, and the unique design of the Veggie Cage allows it to become “one” with the plant. What’s more, the flexibility of the empty Veggie Cage allows it to be stored nearly flat at the end of the season. With every other cage or stakes, you must choose between strength and flexibility.
As your young plants begin to grow, you’ll want to give them a little “guidance” by tucking the main branches into the coils as soon as they are tall enough to reach them. Thereafter, you should take a look at your plants about once each week to make sure that none of the branches are growing outside of the Veggie Cage rings. Any loose branches should simply be tucked inside the nearest coil. As the plant gets taller and fuller, you will need to do this less and less.
