Tomato Cage Trellis

An upside down tomato cage makes a great trellis for climbing plants. We have always used these in our garden for things like peas and pole beans, but recently I decided to try one on a potted mandevilla. Turned upside down and legs tied together with garden twine, it looks great (and is way cheaper than those fancy trellises). Make sure you bury the base of the cage (which is actually the top) in the dirt to make it steady, and place your plant in the center of the cage.
A great new use for an old garden item!
