Hula Hoop Tower Garden Tomato Cage

Hula Hoop Vertical Garden Tomato Cage

What do you do when you need a tomato cage for your Vertical Garden and just can’t afford to purchase one?

You become resourceful and creative. That is what Vanessa Salazar did.

Hula Hoop Tower Garden Tomato Cage

She needed a tomato cage, right now, for her plants. She did not have the funds at that time to purchase a new one.

A trip to the lumber yard to purchase some PVC water line pipe, and to the Dollar Store to purchase some hula hoops and some duct tape.

Vanessa put the PVC pipe into the holes where the Tower Garden supports normally would go. She than duck taped the four hula hoops to them, making a homemade tomato cage.

Her creativeness to solve her needs is something that Red Green would be proud of. Great job thinking out of the box Vanessa!

Gardening Winter Mistake

I was asked about adding cow steer manure to the ground over the winter to help build up the

I let nature decompose all the plant material from Autumn in my garden beds.

soil. Now is not the time to be adding any kind of fertilizer to your soil if you live in a severe winter climate zone. The addition of the fertilizer will stimulate your plants to begin to grow. During cold weather with shorter daylight hours plants are conserving their energy in order to survive. Stimulating your plants with fertilizer may cause them to die.

I leave leaves and other natural plant matter on the ground in my garden beds over the winter. In the spring I turn them under into the soil with a spade shovel. The natural decomposition of the plant matter helps to add nutrients to the soil. If you have any questions contact me using the form below:
