Was there any reply to this?  My father who lives just outside of Chicago
has been looking for these cages as well.  I'd be interested to see if
anyone knows of these.  Thanks~

Subject: [tomato] Tomato cages for potted plants??

We have a Black Walnut tree in our yard - and since the roots are toxic to
tomato plants we plant them in large plastic pots.   A couple of years ago
we bought what I would call LARGE INVERTED CAGES.  They have 4 rings with
the lowest being 18inch diameter 2nd lowest 16 inch etc ... but still having
the spikes on the bottom to anchor into the ground outside of the pot.   We
cannot remember where we got them, but cannot find them anywhere.  Any help
in finding / or identifying these cages if they are not truly tomato cages??

We are in the Chicago area.
