You might have to order them on-line. I find that if you want something out of the ordinary thats the only way to get it.

Any Idea as to a Canadian online store that would carry this? I checked at Lee Valley and they do not have what I am looking for.

Thanks. Yes Vesey's does carry what I think I want. Specifically this one:

Shipping such large heavy objects will for sure bump up the price. I would like to find the same product at a 'brick and mortar' store.

I want these cages not for tomatoes but in fact for my Annabelle Hydrangeas. I would position the cages around the plants in the spring.

I am sure it would work just fine for peonies also. I am not sure a welder would help as I want these cages to be 'foldable' to allow for easy storage in the winter.

I picked up some foldable/collapsible square cages at our local dollar store. To reinforce them, I wove metal stakes through the wire on each side, then hammered the stakes into the ground.

Now that sounds promising. But what are their advertised purpose at the dollar store? I am just not sure where I would it look in the store!

Any chance you could post a picture and include dimensions?
