Simply slide the red tomato tray around the base of your plant, and then push the four spikes into the soil until flanges are level with the ground. Cover flanges with soil so the wind will not blow it around. Fill the spikes with your favorite fertilizer; our customers use Espoma Tomato Tone, and then fill the tray with water.
Use in conjunction with any of our folding tomato cage, for almost effortless growing results. The Red Tomato Tray holds one-half gallon of water. Filling it each morning and evening provides the optimal moisture for growing the best tomatoes!
The Red Tomato Tray is manufactured by Dalen Products.

Comment: What I like best about these trays are they do exactly what they said they will do & they help the tomato plants from crowding each other. I'm wondering if I could use these with other veggies as well? We have raised beds...

Comment: I love these tomato trays, I have been using them for years and they really do enhance the growth of the plants. Last year my tomato plants grew so tall they almost reached the house soffit! I bought taller tomato cages to support the plants for this year. Happy Planting!

Comment: These are the first time I have tried these red tomato trays. In the first three weeks I have seen a big improvement over the ones I did not put them on and I have more blooms than the ones I didn't have any on. So, I ordered more!!

Comment: We use the water teepees in early spring to get a jump on tomato plants maturing. The teepees are round at the base and are in place as the tomato plant matures. This means that the square footprint of the "Red Tomato Tray" is not compatible with the footprint of the teepee. Thus, the tray must be applied after the teepee is dismantled. That means that the tomato plant if quite large and much more difficult to install around the base of the tomato plant. We won't sacrifice the benefits of the wa... More details

Comment: I will be trying these next season when I start my tomato/pepper plants for 2013. I have tried some others but these look better b/c they're thinner.

Comment: I ordered Gardeneer Red Tomato Trays as a test of the company's ability to fill my order quickly and completely and to have it delivered in good time. Garden Harvest Supply passed with flying colors and I plan to order a number of plants from them this spring.

Comment: So far so good. We'll have to wait and see if there really is an improvement with the red trays.
