Cut the legs off of two tomato cages. Save the cutoffs for later use. A smaller cage can be made using 33-in tomato cages with three rings.
Nestle one cage inside another for extra structural support. Alternate the long vertical wires so they're equidistant to each other when nested.
Fasten cable ties to secure the two cages at their intersections. Repeat steps 1-3 with the last two cages.
Stack the two pairs of cages vertically with the largest rings touching. Fasten the top to the bottom with cable ties. If you want to camouflage the cages, spray-paint them green.
Bend the cut off legs in half like hairpins and use them to stake the cage to the soil in the flowerpot.
