Plant Support System

When growing all types of plants one thing they all have in common is to give the plant the support it needs to produce more fruits and vegetables. Why this is important, as the plant grows it is producing heavy fruits that pull the plant downward. When you give it the support it needs it’s going to redirect the energy back into the plant and produce more fruits versus having to try and keep itself upright and produce fruits. Helps eliminate mold and fungus on the plants.

How to use EZ Step-In Posts

When installing the EZ Step-In Post or any other post you always want the anchor (or foot platform) facing the plant to receive the maximum results for the plant. First, plant your tomato, pepper, raspberry or any type of plant that needs proper support first. Then install the EZ Step-In Post right after you plant. The reason for this is you do not want to disrupt the root system. This could harm and reduce the production of your plants.

Supporting Tomato Plants

For the tomato plant we suggest attaching any of the 3 size rings 8”, 10”, or 12” rings depending on the diameter of the plant, that’s why we give the grower the option to customize for what the plant will need. For proper support we suggest attaching a support ring to the plant every 6-10 inches as the plant continues to grow upright. I like to place the support rings underneath the blooms before the plants start producing tomatoes. Also you can rotate the rings on the post to capture the vines in multiple directions to support the entire plant without trying to compact the plant in one EZ Ring, this will help with adequate air flow for the plant and keep mold and fungus away. More support the plant receives the more fruits it will produce.

Supporting Pepper & Raspberry Plants

Pepper plants and raspberry plants we suggest adding an EZ Ring every 12 inches to the plant or as needed depending how the plant is growing/ producing. 10” and 12” inch rings are recommended.

Helpful Hint

After the plant has reached about 12–15 inches high, place the 8″ EZ Ring first around the plant. After attaching the EZ Ring you want to locate the main stock. Then prune any stocks or shoot up 10-12 inches from the ground up and only keep the main stock. This will help increase fruits off of each plant.

Features of the EZ Rings

• Add additional rings at any time without damaging the plant
• Adjustable up or down
• Rotate 360 degrees to accommodate the plant’s needs
• Rings can be turned upside down and attached to the rod clamp for heavier support.
• Easy to clean and disinfect from mold & fungus
• Compact for storage
• Rings were designed to have a bigger radius for the plant to rest on versus the wire cages that will cause damage in high wind and rain storms
• If the rings sag, simply rotate them every other year and the rings will go back to the same shape they were molded. (polymer has a great memory to go back to the same shape as it was molded as.) The More support the plant receives, the more fruits the plant will produce and the healthier the plant becomes.

Supporting Trees

After planting the tree, put the three posts with the anchor facing towards the tree in a triangle formation. This will help give the post a spring like effect and allow the tree to have movement with the rings that flex when the wind is blowing. This will not only protect the tree from falling over but it will help strengthen the root system from attracting disease.

Step by Step

1. Take the 8” rings and place them around the tree.
2. Attach the rod clamp to the ring and do not attach it to the post.
3. Take your post and align the outside of the rod clamp on the outside of the post giving you the correct distance where you will install the post. Keep the ring about a quarter inch away from the tree.
4. Place the post in the ground anchor facing the tree.
5. Slide the rod clamp without the ring on it, down the post about 6-8 inches.
6. Take the locking nut with the notches facing out and tighten to the post making it secure.
7. The tree will be protected and also have great curb appeal.
