Tomato Plant Collar

A tomato plant collar is a simple barrier placed around the stem of a plant, to keep cutworms and other worms from damaging your plants. Most frequently referred to as a "tomato plant collar", its effectiveness is not limited to tomato plants. It can be used on any vegetable or flower plant that you are experiencing problems with cutworms and other worms.

How to Make a Tomato Plant Collar:

The overall length of tomato plant collars should be at least 5-7 inches long.

What to Use:

  • Paper or plastic cups

  • Tin cans

  • Milk jugs

  • Aluminum foil

  • Center rolls of paper towels or toilet paper

Installing the Tomato Plant Collar:

  • Remove the bottom, if there is one.

  • Carefully place the collar over a small, young plant.

  • For older established plants, slit the collar along it's length. Then, place it around the plant, with the cut ends slightly overlapped.

  • Bury the collar about two inches into the soil.

  • The collar should be about 3-4 inches above the soil.
