Gopher Baskets

These things work! I've tried all kinds of gopher control and this is the only one that works consistently. I use the 4" gopher baskets to plant nearly all my vegetables. I buy a lot of them. The baskets don't need to protect the whole root growth area; it just needs to prevent the gopher from damaging the base of the plant and main roots. I know the gophers are just as busy in the garden as before because I see holes dug all around the gopher basket but I haven't lost any plants.

Pretty good

As expected but could be a little larger.

Stopped gophers from eating my plants

After watching the gophers destroy one plant after another, even those which they don't typically eat (like lavendar), this product has saved my garden! These cages are easy to shape and fill with dirt. The roots are able to expand and grow through the holes, but the main root structure and plant are protected. I will be ordering more in the future.

Gopher Baskets

Gopher baskets are great! They are effective to prevent gopher damage to plants. After testing out various gopher traps, repellents, and adopting several barn cats, I found that using a Mini Gopher Basket for each vegetable plant is by far the most effective method to prevent gopher damage. The baskets are reusable and last for many seasons. Good product. Highly recommend it!
