Stop the gopher destruction!
Humane and effective, these sturdy baskets are superior to chicken or aviary wire for barring gophers from your plant's roots. The 3/4 mesh, 20 gauge wire is galvanized for maximum corrosion resistance.
Just set the basket in the plant hole with the green wire above-ground to block the overland route. Put the plant inside, backfill with soil and you're done!
