Trim to Size
Flip the tomato cage upside down and use wire cutters to trim just above the rung at the desired height. Mix and match various cage heights for even more impact.
Measure the circumference of the top rung of the tomato cage and find a pot that matches the size. Have fun when selecting the pots.
Use spray paint to add color to the cage. Add two or more coats to maximize the color.
Add soil to the pots and layer in plants for depth. Mix lots of varying colors and texture for added visual interest.
Water right after planting to anchor the plant roots.
